Supporting Children’s Brain Development through Music

This program has been updated.

music and the brainIn this webinar for the Arts & Music in Early Learning community, Lili M. Levinowitz, Ph.D., Professor of Music Education at Rowan University, and Lauren Guilmartin, Director of Early Learning at Music Together LLC, discussed the many ways in which music participation in early childhood naturally supports children’s brain development. Research continues to emphasize how important the first five years of a child’s life are for brain development. Music can be an enjoyable and easy way for educators to support the development of important structural changes, neurological processes, and cognitive skills during this very active time of brain development. Attendees not only learned about some of the recent research in this field, but also came away with a deeper understanding of music’s impact on the developing brain.
