What is Musicality?
Musicality is communication with information rich in patterns- using sound, but also movement, symbols, gestures and touch.
Why is Musicality good for children’s developing brain?
It involves patterns which are very stimulating to the brain
It encourages development of movement (Motor) skills
It’s lots fun and develops social relationships and language skills
It can be Visual (symbols, gestures, expressions) and Auditory (rhythm, pitch, speech),.
It is linked to understanding, concepts, words and language,
and so it can follow children’s interests in a child-led learning environment.

The iPad components of this resource are currently being piloted on iPad. The interactives come as a suite of iPad apps with links to the website – so children can play musicality games, you can play sound files easily, and you can also use your iPad for planning and assessment. The iPad is a great tool for nursery and our resource is great on an iPad. The iPad material will become more widely available during the 2014-15 session.
