The learning and movement connection is especially evident in instrument play. In exploration time, we encourage the Koalas to explore the texture and colour of the instrument, the many ways to play it, and the variety of sounds it makes. Playing the instrument to music engages the senses of touch, hearing, and sight. The little Koalas are observing the changes when they move the instrument, and how the instrument’s sound changes, too. They are learning to coordinate their movements to play fast or slow and quiet or loud. They are also learning how to express themselves by choosing how they play.
