Mood of the Fifth, edited by Nancy FosterWECAN
Music is a vital part of the healthy development of young children and yet many teachers can struggle with this key area. This book collects together different perspectives on the theme of music in the mood of the fifth (that is, using a pentatonic scale of five notes), to help teachers, parents and carers understand and work with music at kindergarten level. The book includes classic articles by Jennifer Aulie, Wilma Ellersiek and Rita Jacobs, along with new contributions by Michael Deason-Barrow, Jana Hawley, Renate Long-Breipohl, Sally Schweizer, Estelle Bryer, Eleanor Winship, Jill Taplin and many others. A key resource book for Steiner-Waldorf teachers.
