Many studies have proven that music has a huge impact on the brain development of children. What kind of music do you turn on in your classroom? What does that music mean to you? This workshop introduces and encourages teachers and child care professionals to use more music in their classrooms to enhance their daily routines. Using music as a teaching tool helps children to adapt more easily to daily routines, express themselves, experience their own feelings, and connect socially to peers and educators.
