Research continues to emphasize how important the first five years of a child’s life are for brain development. Active music-making can be an easy and enjoyable way for educators who work with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers to support the development of important structural changes, neurological processes, and skills during this very active time of brain development.

In this edWebinar, Dr. Lili M. Levinowitz shared some recent research in the fields of music and brain development, reviewed key concepts, and demonstrated new music activities and techniques that can be used to naturally support young children’s brain development—all while having fun! Come away with a deeper understanding of music’s impact on the developing brain and how they can strengthen this impact through specific musical interactions.
