Building executive functioning through musical experiences

September 19, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm


Age Range applicable: Kindy & Prep
Outline: Executive functioning relies on neurological processes that support children to engage in high level thinking skills. These processes include: working memory, inhibitory control, flexible thinking. Development of these cognitive processes supports children to be motivated and engaged in learning tasks and work towards becoming self regulated learners. This workshop provides educators with a way to view musical experiences through the lens of executive functioning. Participants will experience musical activities that build working memory, self regulation and flexible thinking skills to gain confidence in supporting children’s executive functioning skills.
Teaching Standards: AITSL-1,2,3 | QSA-1
