WORKSHOP 1 – THE SCIENCE OF MUSICAL PLAY
Monday 5th March, 7pm – 9pm, with Julie Wylie and Occupational Therapist Julie Frew
Music is a language of the emotions, which affects our mood. It can cause us to feel calm, or agitated and over-aroused. This workshop is designed to help parents, teachers and educators understand how music works in relation to the brain, why babies are “born musical” and able to take turns in musical conversations from birth, and what parents and teachers can do to tune into the language of music to help regulate young children through musical play.
Practical music strategies will help participants to understand how to match children’s energy levels, how to use music for different developmental ages and stages and how to build joyful, musical, regulated, relationship-based music interactions with children.
Venue: Hao Room, Te Hāpua (Halswell Library), 341 Halswell Road, Christchurch.
Cost: $40 per workshop (or a total of $100 for all three). Please register by emailing Helen at email@example.com, stating clearly which session/s (1-Science, 2-Art, 3-Psychology), you would like to attend.
Helen will confirm your registration by email and will provide bank account details for payment. We look forward to seeing you!
