This core text is written for Early Childhood Education courses in Music and Movement, and the Creative Arts and Expression.

By balancing research coverage and theory with applied practice, this best-selling text covers the most current and comprehensive of topics while encouraging teachers to not only inspire young children to move with music, but be inspired themselves.

The seventh edition presents a comprehensive and up-to-date survey of professional research while continuing to provide links between theory and practice. Edwards encourages teachers and caregivers to attend to the importance of research and contemporary thought regarding music and movement education. At the same time, the narrative frames theoretical ideas in meaningful ways for the adult who has chosen teaching as a profession. The songs, ideas, suggestions, and music and movement concepts included are time-tested. Parents, teachers, student teachers, caregivers, and students have aided in compiling and assessing the contents of this edition. Musical concepts and activities appropriate for each age and grade level have been included to accompany some of the songs and rhythms. Movement and dance concepts are also presented in age-specific content.
