Abstract

The intentional and deliberate provision of music in early childhood settings can establish a foundation of music learning which will continue through primary and secondary education and ensure that what is provided at early childhood level intentionally lays the foundation for life-long music citizenship. This paper proposes to illustrate how the stated 'major obligations' contained in the NSW Curriculum Framework can be realised through the intentional and deliberate provision of music in early childhood settings. This provision provides a foundation upon which creative activities can emerge and engage young children. The paper concludes by offering a cyclical scaffold promoted for teaching music as a HEAR - EXPERIENCE - LEARN- PERFORM (HELP).
