Abstract

Television is one of the earliest ways that children gain access to popular music. The child's early experience of both music and television does not necessarily separate out 'music alone' from his or her evolving musical appreciation. The co-operation of television and popular music encourage particular modes of attention and expression for the child as both viewer and listener. Movement, gesture, and the response of the body to the visual and aural cues of music-television may be seen to inform this appreciation. The child learns, feels and demonstrates that they have done so. This is guided and inspired by what they hear and see.
