Listen & Move

Listen & Move


Listen & Move! is collection of games and activities that introduce young children to music they may have never listened to before, and also musical concepts such as keeping a steady beat, noticing dynamics, instrumentation, musical character and story telling through music.


All activities are suitable for individual or group classes.


The core music and movement activities can also be found in Best Start Music Lessons Book 1 (second edition) and Best Start Music Lessons Book 2. However, Listen & Move! also includes MANY additional activities that are not found in the Lesson books. For example extra colouring pages, cut out and glue puppets, and rhythm activities.


This download is intended to provide studio teachers and parents with additional resources for individual and group music tuition, and home practice.

If you have any questions, comments or feedback, I'd love to hear from you at!
