|About||http://childsplaymusic.com.au Music incursions for Schools K-3, & ESC, Child Care Centres & Pre-Kindergarten, in greater Perth & Mandurah,WA.|
Our business mission:
To give the children the most exciting and educational musical experience possible.
Every child will play with every instrument. I don't do performances - your children do that naturally, because every child is a natural musician. We aim to be the very best, and at an affordable price!
Our Facebook Page mission:
This Page is a way to give something back to the ECE community all over the world! We have thousands of fans, most of whom will never, ever book Child's Play Music - we don't sell our services to people in the USA, or Ireland, or Thailand or Tanzania; we can't! Perth & Mandurah, Australia is our only market.
But ECE has given me (Alec Duncan) so much! 2 separate wonderful careers working with young children & the opportunity to profoundly influence their lives for the better. It's also allowed me to engage with fascinating ideas and concepts; it's given me a university degree; it has let me reach out to fellow educators all over the world; it has made me life-long friendships; and it has - most importantly - been tremendous FUN!
So this Page is my way of saying "thank you!" And I maintain it not to make money (my website does that! http://childsplaymusic.com.au/), but to give back to the ECE community just a little something. Because ECE and children and music are my life :)
We bring over 60 hand made instruments to your location and guide your students through an exciting and educational program of fun and learning. All programs are carefully tailored to the age and developmental level of your students.
Young children learn best through active hands-on play - so that's what our programs provide: musical instruments that any child can play, that are safe and almost unbreakable. And then we guide the children through both free-play and structured-play activities including opportunities for individual exploration of all the instruments, plus "orchestral" activities where the whole class cooperates in creating music together.
