What others say about MusicTalk . . .

I work as an early childhood development program teacher whose students really embrace music and positively engage their learning when music is incorporated. I valued learning new ways to read a story to my students using musical instruments, voice alterations, levels of questioning and visual prompts. I liked how the songs and activities shown in the course allows for an interactive, hands-on engagement for the students. I am by no means a singer, but I cannot wait to sing the learnt songs from this course to further support my student's language and vocabulary within my classroom!
