In the presentation, participants will be given hands on tools to use in their own classroom settings. Participants will learn some techniques on how to use music effectively to grow a child’s developmental skills, such as focusing, attention, listening, language and creative thinking. All this can be done with ease and is simply replicable and can be adapted to different settings. Some instruments will be used in class, however, all you need is your voice and body as you are your own instrument!
