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

Having a positive approach toward learning lays the groundwork for development that is 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 naturally and deeply supports a child’s positive approach toward learning. The two also explained how music can help educators understand more about a child’s learning style — which can be particularly useful in the beginning of the school year.
