Hear what childcare providers, parents, and music educators have to say about PRISMS™

The children in my childcare loved our weekly music lessons. Then the pandemic hit and we could no longer have a music teacher. We were so happy to find “PRISMS” Although none of the teachers have any music training we are able to use PRISMS to offer music to our children weekly. Through using the simple lessons from PRISMS the children are experiencing the joys of music and learning about notes, instruments, rhythm, and songs. Music is such an important part of early childhood development. I am so glad that we have PRISMS to helps us incorporate music into our weekly curriculum.

Wow! I am so impressed with the entire curriculum! What a gift this is for all educators - access to high quality, clear, concise, and accessible materials. I cannot recommend PRISMS enough for any musical setting!

The PRISMS curriculum is one that keeps both children AND teachers in mind. An abundance of resources for teachers allows them to be really comfortable teaching, even those without formal music education. While aligning with California Department of Education Preschool Foundations, children explore a wide variety of sounds, concepts, and activities through this creative curriculum. My favorite part is definitely learning all the instruments. It does not just focus on Western instruments, but explores instruments from all over the world, including many that even most musicians would be unaware of! Everything is well-thought and clearly organized, I give PRISMS my highest recommendation!!
