Abstract

This case study traces the responses of one child to a program of music experiences. The program was implemented in the toddler playroom of a daycare centre for ten months. The music experiences provided in the program were of three types: free music play, sociable music experiences, and music incorporated into caregiving routines. This study records the child's responses to some of these music experiences and documents some of changes that occurred over time. The child's physical, language and social development provided the focus of this study. Some implications for practice in the provision of music experiences for toddlers in daycare have been drawn from the findings.
