I hope that you are enjoying our new Spotify Playlist. I began using Spotify about 2 years ago. My student teacher at the time (who now teaches elementary music!) showed me this tool. It has really been a money saver for me. There is an extensive amount of different types of music....

Recently became a member and have been very much enjoying your material! I have two questions I would love your opinion on.
1) Ive inherited a wonderful selection of instruments from the previous teacher including 2 child size guitars and some recorders. Im really struggling with how to use them appropriately in my class. My youngest students are two and my oldest are in Kindergarten (though my classes are always a mixed age). Some other teachers I spoke too think this is far too young for recorder and guitar (espeically since I have a class set of neither) but the previous teacher obviously used them - wondering what your thoughts would be?
2) I notice some of the lesson plans include reference to quarter notes etc (the dinosaurs can dig it lesson plan for example) at what age do you start teaching these rhythms. We play them lots in echos and rhythms but i havent verbalized what we are doing or shown any visuals. id be interested to hear what you do.
Many thanks less
