Detailed description

Puppets and props are excellent tools for the music room. They can be used to introduce many aspects of music making to young children, such as:

  • exploring imitation and improvisation in movement
  • exploring pitch, timbre and improvisation with the voice
  • Puppets and props also offer instant opportunities for inclusion

Most of all, they are fun and engaging to work with and will excite all children in your class.
