“What’s in the Box?” Parent Workshop on Monday Night

On Monday evening we held a seminar: “What’s in the Box” for parents from our Julie Wylie Musical Play classes.
This was an opportunity for parents to  meet one another, to ask questions, to experience some simple musical play and understand how music works in relation to the brain and how to use music to calm and settle their children at bedtime, or when they upset and over-aroused.
We also explored the elements of music in relation to the body, use of instructional and narrative songs to sing children through sequences of daily routines, and singing about what their child is doing.
Musical play was emphasised as something every parent and child can enjoy at home, in the car, anywhere.
Questions from parents related to how children communicate musically, join in or watch during a music class, how they play musically at home, examples of their children’s musical play and when children are ready to go on and learn a musical instrument.
We enjoyed meeting parents and hearing their music stories about their children and having a group discussion about the benefits of musical play classes.
Thanks to our fabulous music team we all enjoyed a delicious array of food.

Testimonials

Julie, I found your adorable CD, “Teddy Bears Tango” and would love to use it for our school’s Argentine Country Day of study. It is just what I have been looking for to fill the “music” station for the youngest students.

I’m a music teacher and LOVE your music and would love to use more of it.
