Abstract

The paper presents Janez Bitenc, composer of songs for children and musical fairy tales for young children, as the person responsible for the development
of pre-school music education. As a music editor and educator, Bitenc was convinced that singing in family circles was declining, which was why he became a strong advocate of placing greater importance on music education in kindergartens and early-stage elementary school classes. Bitenc wrote lyrics, melodies and fairy tales, and, what is more, devised an original method of how to teach children’s songs.
