Most parents are surprised to hear that they can introduce their pre-schoolers to music appreciation in the homeschool, through the study of geography. 

I’m sure you have introduced your kids to the different continents of the world or at least as a minimum your pre-schooler knows about her own country and its neighbours. 

If you are like me from one country but living in another, your pre-schooler may already know about two countries, won’t she?

So why not use this knowledge to also introduce her to music from the two countries?

Starting to get the picture now? 

Ok, read on and let me explain, but don’t forget to download the adorable printable I have made available so your pre-schooler can do all the activities stated here, irrespective of the country or region you choose to focus on. 


Composer Studies

Let’s assume for example that you are currently living in England but you are originally from France. 

So why not introduce your little one to one famous composer from England and another famous composer from France?

You can teach her basic facts about both composers (make it sound like a story), and introduce her to two or more of the composers’ most popular compositions. 

That’s it?


Ok, let’s move to the next activity. 


Instrument Studies

Think of Europe in general, this time. 

Introduce your child to some of the musical instruments that originated in Europe like the Violin for instance. 

Show pictures, watch a performance by Vanessa Mae for instance and teach your child about basic facts about the violin.

You can even take your little one to a musical instrument store to look at the instrument in person. 



Here’s another interesting activity. Let’s assume your child is learning about Africa, why not create a playlist of African music and play it in the background while your little one is doing geography activities?

Can you think of a better way to blend geography and music studies? 



Use two of the songs your little one listened to, whether it is one by a British composer and another by a French composer or two songs by the same composer, ask your little one questions like this?

Which one did you like the most?

How did it make your feel?

Why do you like the other song less? Doesn’t it make you feel as happy as the first one and so on?


What do you think?

Which one will you be implementing first?
