Past Event -Developing smarter kids
It goes without saying we all would and we can show you how!
Join us for our exciting Early Childhood Music & Movement courses we are presenting in Melbourne, January 16th – 20th, 2018.
(Or you can participate online from anywhere in the world!)
Past participants in our Welcome to Music courses and PLAYshops know only too well just how valuable it is to immerse yourself in a supportive learning environment and come away more confident and inspired, equipped with the tools you need to make your music classes easy and fun – and help develop smarter kids in the process!
Research consistently links music and movement activities to supporting learning and development in early childhood education.
We know that music can activate the brain for learning; trigger positive emotion; enhance physical development; social skills; build self-esteem and confidence; aid wellbeing and self-regulation, and should be an important part of every high quality early childhood program. These courses include a range of delightful rhymes, games, songs, folk dances, creative movement, musical stories, world music, percussion instrument activities, drumming, recorders, ukuleles and creative play. The strategies contained in the courses will link to critical aspects of a child’s development and will inspire teachers and educators to embed quality musical activities and experiences into children’s programs. These courses are suitable for all educators working with young children – no prior music experience is necessary.
