Full STEAM ahead! Educators recognize that curricular integration is the most efficient, effective, and authentic way to support children’s learning in multiple domains. STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) learning is becoming common in education as increasingly more educators are seeing the benefits of integrating arts-based education with learning in other areas. And, currently, there is more interest in beginning STEAM learning in early childhood.
In this edWebinar, you’ll come to understand how music as an “auditory tool” can support young children’s learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—all while developing their innate music capacity. You’ll gain some concrete ideas on ways to use developmentally appropriate music activities to support STEAM learning in enjoyable and holistic ways. This presentation will be of interest to educators working with toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartners. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.

At Music Together, we understand the importance of music in early childhood—from birth, in fact. Because the truth is, most people are born with enough music aptitude to play in a symphony orchestra when they are adults, if they choose. But first we must learn how to “speak music”—to take the musical instrument we all have, ourselves, developing that musical capacity from a very young age. The sounds we make, our movements, our rhythms—these are the building blocks of music and of early childhood learning. And that’s what Music Together is all about.
