MUSIC IS GLUE FOR YOUR BRAIN
(preschool and elementary teachers, child care providers)
This hands-on workshop offers a practical strategy that non-musicians can use to choose songs and create songs for use in educational environments, especially to support emergent literacy, behavior management, and to address multiple learning styles. Maryland Child Care Continuing Ed credit
GOOD VIBRATIONS: Using Music to Connect with Young Children
(childcare providers, parents)
They say music is the universal language. It’s true - songs are “whole brain” communicators that create emotional connection with young and old. In this workshop, participants will expand their collection of songs as well as their repertoire of connective musical strategies that support predictable patterns of physical, visual and aural play. Participants need not consider themselves to be musically adept; empowerment is included, even for those who have been requested to quit singing in the shower!
