Effective Teaching, Leading, and Parenting via the Power of Music

Music is a natural way of communicating with children. Powerful connections are forged when grownups (teachers, parents, grandparents, caregivers, etc.) engage in musical play with children on a regular basis. Come to this interactive workshop ready to use your voice, move your body, and learn about ways to use music in your classroom or home to support the physical, emotional, and language development of young children.
