Here we are for our second appointment of the Weekly musical suggestion!
In preparation of the song for the new year we have decided to share with you another amazing piece this week, to celebrate the lunch of our Weekly musical suggestion.
After the classical piece of a couple of days ago, today we would like to share with you a lullaby sung half in Zulu and half in English.
Thula Mtwana – Be Still My Child
Leib Ostrow produced this song with Ladysmith Black Mambazo in South Africa (Zulu). They produced a whole recording for children and families called Gift of the Tortoise which is available on I tunes or Amazon.
How can you listen to this song with your child?
See you on the 24th for our Weekly musical suggestion!
At Highbury Park Music we have decided to take inspiration from our Italian friend Marta!
Marta Noè is a great music educator that runs the Italian blog Musindò, which offers every week a selected musical piece to be listen at home with the children.
At HPM we choose our musical proposals according to the Music Learning Theory of Edwin E. Gordon and our experiences as music educators.
With the aim of helping the development of the musical potential of the child, we follow the principals of contrast, briefness, variety and complexity as fundamental elements of our weekly musical suggestions.
Marta Noè is a music educator specialised in the Music Learning Theory, founder and director of two different schools in Milan, called Musindò. She’s also a wonderful mum!
