Developmentally Appropriate Practice is the path to supporting young children’s growth and learning throughout the early years. Did you know that research in music education also points to the importance of Developmentally Appropriate Practice when teaching and making music with children?

In this webinar, Lili Levinowitz discussed the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s definition of Developmentally Appropriate Practice and the 3 core considerations – and how these can be adapted to apply to early childhood music education. Developmentally appropriate songs and teaching strategies that best support children’s music development in the early childhood classroom were introduced. Even if you are not a music educator, this webinar will provide you with a new lens through which to look at Developmentally Appropriate Practice in early childhood education.
