Book Music for your Professional Development
Music is a powerful vehicle for learning. Kids respond well to music because it involves so many senses and learning styles. Janet can help your teachers build skills and confidence to enable them to incorporate music into your daily sessions. With a wealth of multi award-winning music in the Kids Music Company repertoire, and many years of experience running classes for kids and workshops for teachers, Janet can bring these advantages right to your centre.
Have Janet in your centre to work directly with your staff.

Choose a Workshop Topic
1. Music as a Vehicle for Learning
Discover how music can help children develop in all eight essential learning areas. Use music to help children develop in the following areas.
Motor – body awareness, balance, coordination, control, timing
Visual – peripheral, teaming, tracking, hand-eye co-ordination
Aural (hearing) – concentration and focused listening, following instructions
Linguistic (language) – understanding, building vocabulary, enunciation
Social – confidence, sharing, taking turns, positive self-esteem, sharing quality time with others
Memory – building short term memory, sequencing
Musical – timing, singing in tune, moving in time, playing instruments
Creative – imagination, lateral thinking, problem solving
2. Developing Motor Skills
A child with well-developed control of his/her body can focus on other learning around them. Use music to create opportunities for children to develop coordination through building body awareness, and moving those body parts in simple then more complex patterns, ultimately developing control across the midlines. Balance, vestibular stimulation, spatial awareness and small motor skills also included.
3. Refreshing the Repertoire
