Little Soundabout Cards: Level 4
Bits of pieces! Level 4 is all about recognising and making ‘chunks’ of music and developing an understanding of self, others and the wider world through musical motifs.
Your child might recognise and respond to musical phrases, create simple musical motifs themselves, or engage in musical dialogues with other people using musical chunks. They might also connect movement and feelings with musical chunks and show an awareness of self, others and the wider world through musical motifs.
