Early Years Music Training with Emma
Emma Hutchinson, Founder & Director of Music House for Children, is providing the entire music module to first year BA hons degree students studying Early Childhood at Malta University.
Having completed 12 hours of online teaching prior to a week of in-person teaching , Emma commented: “I am blown away by the Maltese student’s evident enthusiasm and willingness to sing, participate and engage practically despite being online, and with the course being entirely in English."
The students' feedback on the training was really positive "excellent, expressive, musical, wonderful in both physical and power point presentation" , "I learnt that music can be taught with basically everything and music is a holistic opportunity for the children".
