I've used these songs in the classroom with pre-schoolers through second graders to help teach friendship and character building skills through music. Singing, dancing and playing instruments are fun ways to learn important skills that last a lifetime!

Album Notes
Musical Moments (TM) —
Building Character Through Music

This wonderful CD makes available songs that are used in the Musical Moments programs for young children led by educator and performing artist Joni DeGabriele (Mrs. D).

The Musical Moments teaching approach focuses on a unique social-emotional music curriculum that makes learning fun. The programs help teach friendship and character building skills to children of pre-school age through second grade, helping to improve their social and emotional abilities in important ways — and these positive and lively songs that children love to sing are an integral part of the Musical Moments learning process.

Why Mrs. D created Musical Moments —

As a veteran kindergarten, first, and second grade teacher at Dixie Elementary School in San Rafael, Mrs. D's education, training and experience led her to develop skills that gave her the ability to envision and create Musical Moments. Singing, movement, instruments and child-friendly puppet characters have been her teaching tools in the classroom for more than twenty years.

During the 2013 school year, Mrs. D noticed several students struggling socially, and that these struggles had a negative effect on everyone’s academic learning. She began to implement a social-emotional curriculum in the classroom and quickly saw positive results with all the children. Knowing how music and puppets are valuable teaching tools that make learning fun for children, Mrs. D also began to write song lyrics that help teach social-emotional vocabulary and concepts, using the tunes of familiar songs that make it easy for the children to sing along.

The results have been amazing. Children respond positively to Mrs. D's music programs and feedback from both teachers and parents indicate the children retain the lessons learned.

Children who are kind, respectful, resilient, and responsible do well both academically and socially. This is exactly how Mrs. D envisioned Musical Moments working by “building character through music” in young children.

Mrs. D has taught music, drama and movement in preschools and elementary schools throughout Marin County, California. Her education and training include:
* California Multiple-Subject Credential
* California Music Credential
* GLAD training and certification Tier 1
* Kimochis™ Social-Emotional Curriculum
* Phyllis Weikart Education Through Movement
* Orff-Schulwerk training
