Join this edWebinar as we discuss the many ways in which music participation in early childhood naturally supports the brain development of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.
Research continues to emphasize how important the first five years of a child’s life are for their brain development. Developmentally appropriate music activities can be an enjoyable and easy way for educators to naturally support the development of important structural changes, neurological processes, and cognitive skills during this very active time of development.
Attendees will not only learn about some of the recent research in this field, but they’ll come away with a deeper understanding of music’s impact on the developing brain and gain some musical tools and interaction ideas they can use to support young children’s brain development – all while also supporting their music development!
Attendees will be able to use the knowledge they gain in this edWebinar to more intentionally use music in their day-to-day work with children.
This edWebinar will be of particular benefit to those who work with infants and toddlers. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
