If the following statements describe your child, then he or she is

A Performer...

(also known as a Musical Learner)

  • These learners relate to their world through sound.
  • They love listening to music, often have a pleasing singing voice, and easily create original melodies and rhythms.
  • They often beg to learn how to play an instrument at an early age.
  • Ironically, some musical learners need it quiet in order to concentrate on non-sound related activities like reading or writing because any background music or even a repetitive sound becomes distracting, since they would rather intently listen to it than do their work.

Step Three: Experience

Here comes the fun part... I'm sure you'll agree with me that the best learning actually feels like playing— hence the name of this website. So with this in mind, the learning suggestions given below are carefully crafted activities that your Musical Learner will naturally enjoy doing anyway! (Please note that while I tried my best to include activities that span the ages of all children in the elementary grades, any certain activity may not appeal to all age levels.)

As an extra bonus, when you click on any of the learning suggestions that are underlined in orange text, I have added links to specific product recommendations related to each activity. Please note that Playing2Learn will earn a commission (at no additional cost to you) should you choose to purchase through them.  Thanks in advance for your support!

These suggestions are just the beginning and I hope you use them to think of even more ways that your child can experience learning that feels like play! (And if you like this, I have much more to share— see details at the bottom of this page...)
