Big Beats for Young Peeps
A highly listenable, all-instrumental album featuring a variety of musical beats to get “young peeps” moving. Reflecting the 20 tracks’ musical styles, titles include “Play Those Keys,” “Robot Re-charge,” “Fiesta Beat,” “Smooth Flute,” “Island Shuffle.” The CD, produced by veteran Chip Dixson, includes a well-conceived activity guide created by HighScope’s early childhood consultant, Erica Hill, offering ways for parents and teachers to use the music to give children practice in movement and thinking skills.
