Language


Education Through Music is the study of artful teaching and the process of learning through song and play.  ETM activiies build the imagaic system and symbolization process through the synergy of language, song, movement, and interactive play;  thereby, laying the foundation for the building of intelligence.

The links above reveal details about the five aspects that comprise every song and play experience in Education Through Music (ETM).

The folk songs of ETM preserve the prosody of the English language. That is, the natural rhythmic, melodic (inflection), and phrasal structure of spoken language is replicated in the rhythm, melody and phrasing of the songs. Simultaneously, the language is enacted through the play - "What I hear is what I say is what I see is what I do" resulting in the construction of meaning.
