1. Start by teaching the basics of rhythm. Show children a metronome, explain the different levels of beats and have them count out loud. This is an important skill for any musician.

2. Introduce the concept of a staff. Show children a blank staff, explain the lines and spaces, and have them find and name the notes. It's helpful to use imagery such as clapping their hands or stomping their feet for each note.

3. Demonstrate the different types of notes, from whole notes to eighth notes. Show children how these notes differ in length and duration. Have them clap, count and hum along with the melody.

4. Have children trace out a simple melody on a blank staff. This will help them understand both the written note and its sound.

5. After they become comfortable with notes, move onto dynamics, musical symbols, and other musical concepts. Teaching children music can be a very fun and exhilarating experience.

6. Finally, encourage children to play what they've learned. Once they understand the basics of reading music, they will be able to start developing their own compositions and express themselves through music. Encourage their success and curiosity.
