[ Julie Wylie / CD ]
Release Date: Friday 4 October 2013
We are thrilled to present Christchurch-based educator Julie Wylie's new album Magical Musical Play. This album incorporates Julie Wylie's philosophy of introducing the language of music to children so that they understand and use the elements of music in their own creative play. Magical Musical Play promotes tuneful singing, a strong sense of musical form and rhythmic flow through movement and dance.
The pitch games help children understand and play notes in relation to their own bodies. The catchy melodies and themes with wonderful musical arrangements inspire the child to take the lead and create their own dances and music. As they become empowered musically they become proud performers who delight in leading others into their own magical creative world of the imagination.
Featuring a wealth of local and national musicians, the playing on this album by the likes of Ian McLachlan (trumpet), George Cook (tenor sax), Judith Bell (flute), Ellen Deveraux (flute), Sarah Roberts (cor anglais), Hilary Hayes (violin) and Andrew Bell (bodhran), is impeccable.
