Hosted by Bing Music and Movement Specialist Mara Beckerman.

A child’s early experiences with music & movement strengthens language acquisition, social/emotional skills, coordination, and motor skills. It’s also one of the most creative ways to teach and gain a child’s attention! In this session for educators, we’ll sing (including in different languages), explore body percussion (an instrument you always have with you!), use percussion instruments, and find beats in words (ie: syllables) and turn them into rhythms & movement! As we go through the session, a few research studies on the importance of beat/rhythm will be shared. To get the most out of this workshop please watch in a space that has some room to move and be ready to join in with Mara!
