Supporting the Development of Children’s Approaches to Learning with Music and Movement Activities

This program has been updated.

music-433303_640As an educator, you know that young children learn in different ways: they have different learning styles, classroom habits, and attitudes toward learning. These behaviors fall under the developmental domain of “Approaches to Learning,” which encompasses not what children learn, but how. Having a positive approach toward learning lays the groundwork for development in other domains that are essential to success in school and life both. In this edWeb webinar, Lili M. Levinowitz, Ph.D. (Professor of Music Education at Rowan University and Director of Research for the Center for Music and Young Children) and Lauren Guilmartin (Director of Early Learning at Music Together LLC) explored the many ways that music-making very naturally and deeply supports a child’s positive approach toward learning. The two also explained how music can serve as a lens through which to understand more about a child’s learning style —  which can be particularly useful in the beginning of the school year.
