The Bells

Workshop for early childhood Montessori Educators

“In addition to providing a sensorial means for children to increase the acuity of the auditory perception, the bells are a beautiful musical instrument in their own right.” Jean K Miller, PhD

One of the most beautiful sensorial activities a child will engage in at a Montessori Children’s House (3-6yrs) is the Montessori Bells. The Bells help children with auditory recognition of pitch leading to writing and reading music.

In this workshop, we will explore the sensorial presentations of the Bells and introduce diatonic and chromatic scales, their matching and grading, notation, composition and reading music.

Key learnings:

  • Carry and strike a bell
  • The diatonic scale
  • Matching 
  • Grading 
  • Chromatic matching and grading
  • Notation
  • Composition
  • Reading music
