Imagine Magazine: Your Resource for Early Childhood Music Therapy
Play is more than enjoyment; it encompasses active engagement in learning and is an important part of children’s development. Play gives children the opportunity to practice new skills needed in real life. Play can happen anytime, anywhere, and with anyone – peers and adults. Through play, children are motivated to discover the world! Fred Rogers, a children’s television legend, succinctly stated, “Play is really the work of childhood.” In this issue, over 100 authors from 11 countries explore various aspects of play and provide successful strategies and tips, practice ideas, and resources for music therapists, early childhood music educators, daycare providers, service providers, administrators, university educators, students, and of course, parents.
