Nursery Rhymes are a hidden gem for music teachers!

This genre:

  • is musically interesting
  • appeals to children
  • preserves cultural heritage
  • has a historical context
  • has stood the test of time
  • and has songs that are fun to sing

Which all points to nursery rhymes being great for music teachers!

Many songs in this genre can be used to:

  • prepare students for the 6/8 time signature
  • identify singing and speaking voices
  • inner hearing practise
  • learning students' names
  • composition exercises
  • and improvisation
