In this webinar, participants were introduced to the ways in which developmentally appropriate and enjoyable music and movement activities can be used as a catalyst for family engagement in school and at home, ultimately creating a musical community that benefits the development of the whole child. Lili M. Levinowitz, Ph.D. and Lauren Guilmartin introduced participants to current research on the various types of family engagement, which can include parents’ increased participation in their child’s education in the home setting, engagement in the school setting, and the parent-teacher communication and relationship. They then explored how music activities can be used as a tool to enrich the home learning environment and to involve parents in the school and classroom.
