Take a webinar voyage in the uncharted waters known as “Preschool Music Class!” The need for early childhood programs has increased in the US and many school districts are benefiting from funding to offer early intervention programs for preschool-aged students in-house. For many teachers, starting a PreK music program may seem daunting! This webinar will offer practical strategies for teaching PreK music through several music education approaches and demonstrate key activities needed for musical development in early childhood. The National Standards for Music in PreK, as well as learning standards for early childhood will be highlighted throughout the presentation.
