Mar.’s workshops are :
*Based on over 35 yrs classroom experience (preK through college)
*Holistic in nature – because of her dual degrees (BA Music / MA Education
*Combines brain research findings with music/movement
*Multiculturalism is always considered – addressing those who are ELL
*Inclusion for children of all abilities
*Philosophy is not to teach music – but to “use music to teach
*Can be presented for ALL levels – preK – College
The 6 hour workshop can be broken into two topics, 3 hours in the morning, lunch break, 3 hours in the afternoon. All topics include brain research findings and how to implement them through music and movement. They can also be inclusive of all age groups, with the exception of “Tappin’ Those Tiny Toes” which is specifically for infant/toddler. (Music from the Music with Mar. catalog is in the Kaplan Learn Every Day Infant/Toddler Curriculum.”
As teachers, we do so much more than give the tools for learning basic skills.
It is important we are aware of the impact we make on children’s lives.
When we know that children learn best by modeling, than we must model good behavior.
When we know children need to be hugged and smiled at, we must hug and smile.
(Isn’t that a wonderful job description?) Sing-cerely, Mar.
Feel free to ask for other topics as Mar. presents workshops on literacy, communication skills and teaching it all through music (basic skills). Mar.’s philosophy is centered around the importance of making adults comfortable using music with children.
