SPRING 2017 PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SESSION
Are you an educator working with kindergarten aged children? Would you love more insight, confidence and tools to make music with the children in your care? We have just the thing for you! Sounds Like This Professional Development Workshop.
This 120 minute session is with Julie Murray BMus, owner and teacher from Sounds Like This.
Julie is an accredited First Steps in Music teacher through the acclaimed Feierabend Association for Music Education. Julie has been teaching for more than a decade and specialises in play based children's music classes, incorporating the Kodaly philosophies; that music making should be developmentally scaffolded, child-led, intergenerational learning through exploration and discovery, while protecting the child's vocal health, promoting and supporting healthy relationships, building confidence, encouraging creativity and development of aural training and musicianship through singing.
These sessions are perfect for anyone working with children; daycare and kindergarten educators, playgroup facilitators and even swimming teachers who use singing in their classes. If you want to make more music with the children in your care, but you're not sure how best to do it, this is for you! The Sounds Like This’ program reflects the EYLF (Department of Education, 2009), encompassing all aspects of Belonging, Being and Becoming.
Come along and learn easy and engaging new ways to incorporate active listening and music making into your learning environment. Discuss vocal health for educators and the children in your care, and learn techniques to protect your voice. Learn new songs and games to share. Do you already use music? Great, discuss ways to make your existing music making even better!
What do other educators have to say?
"Julie’s passion for music and child development is contagious and inspiring. Every aspect of her class contains elements that can be incorporated into a kindergarten program, simple ideas that anyone can do (including those who feel their musical ability is lacking). The ideas and skills gained will delight, capture and engage the children you are teaching. I cannot recommend Julie and Sounds Like This For Kids enough. I especially loved the story telling component and how the books came to life. Thank you so much for sharing your passion, skills and knowledge."
