Rygsækken by Bibi Fussing and Dorte Bille. A book about children, music and movement.
Rygsækken, or ‘the backpack’, is a useful tool and resource for anyone who is involved in teaching music to children.
Whether you’re interested in the spontaneous use of music in the home or nursery, or the structured teaching of toddlers and their parents in a music school environment, this book will be a source of inspiration for educators, teachers and parents alike.
It has long been recognised that music can be a stimulating factor in child development right from the beginning. The musical development of a child during their first year of life should therefore be taken seriously. Great demands are placed on the need to teach music in the preschool, not only for the music skills gained, but because music can also play a vital role in children’s linguistic, motor and social development.
The importance of musical education is discussed in the first chapter of this book, which provides a theoretical introduction. In the later chapters suggestions for music lessons are given. Rygsækken can be seen as a backpack filled with advice, ideas and inspiration for organising musical training for younger children and their parents.
