The ABC’s of Preschool Music – Part 3

Preschoolers learn about steady beat by experiencing it. Steady beat – that constant continuous pulse – can be reinforced using movement, non-pitched instruments, and body percussion. Tapping, scraping, and shaking non-pitched instruments to the steady beat builds muscle memory of playing a continuous pulse.

Moving to the beat with marching, walking, and hopping are strong steady beat tools. If you are looking for marches, dances and instrument time songs, consider TykesHub curriculum – Teeny Tykes & Tunes. Teeny Tykes & Tunes has newly composed and classic marches, dances and free play songs that can be used to reinforce steady beat.
