Music and movement experiences during the early years are necessary for developing brains. Singing, chanting, gestures, rhythm patterns, and physical movement develop strong connections in young children. In addition, these meaningful experiences develop school readiness skills, while addressing developmental domains and promoting literacy and science knowledge. In this edWebinar, Dr. Mike Longoria, a.k.a. Dr. Mike, demonstrates how music and movement makes learning fun and more importantly, meets the needs of ALL children, regardless of their linguistic, physical, emotional, cognitive or social challenges.
