Pre-schoolers learn with music

Albany -- A child education expert says pre-schoolers need to be taught lessons with music, because students are getting less education in the arts during elementary school.

Shawn Brown hosted his Super Fun Show for pre-schoolers at Albany Technical College Tuesday morning.

An Atlanta entertainer who travels the country, Brown uses music and comedy to teach education lessons and motor skill development to children two to four years old.

Brown also puts on seminars to teach educators ways how to teach pre-schoolers.

"In pre-school we have an opportunity to catch the children while they are two, three, or four years old. By the time they get to first grade, second and third grade, a lot of music programs and artistic programs are taken out of school because of lack of funding," he says.

Brown says young children learn and remember lessons better when they are put to music and song, and that educators need to use these tools more efficiently in their teaching.
