Making Meaningful Music with Our Early Learners – Webinar

Do you lack confidence when it comes to making music with children? Perhaps you feel like you’ve lost your musical mojo from doing the same old songs year in, year out?  


In this practical workshop, experienced music teacher Anne Belcher will share a simple five-part framework for incorporating music into early childhood programs. You will explore each of the five key components of music - beat, singing, instruments, movement, and listening. 

Educators will:  

  • Learn how music and movement can help childhood development.  

  • Learn a simple five-part framework for incorporating music and movement into early childhood programs.  

  • Walk away with ideas for effective, yet inexpensive props and instruments as well as easily accessible songs, dances and listening activities that you can incorporate immediately. 


We are so lucky to be able to give the gift of music to the children in our care. This session will give you the boost in energy and confidence you need to bring more meaningful music and movement into your program!
