Interactive Music & Movement Webinar

April 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT

This early childhood music training workshop introduces teachers and parents to the power of play centered music and movement for children. The teachers get hands-on training with methods and materials and learn how to implement the PlayMotion Music System with their students. This is a fun, interactive experience that takes the teachers step-by-step through the activities giving them tools and curriculum that they will be able to use in their schools and classrooms.
