Celia Stewart will share some great teaching ideas for music in early childhood!

This workshop will explore practical ideas to use with infants & toddlers, and will demonstrate how you can integrate numeracy & literacy learning into your music activities to promote children’s development. We will chant, sing, move, play, and listen in a workshop that will send you away with ideas you can incorporate immediately into your daily programme.

Celia has been involved in music education all her life and is currently Music Director of the Christchurch School of Music. She is a regular presenter of workshops in early childhood and primary music education throughout NZ and in 2013 she completed a Masters Degree in education majoring in Orff Schulwerk.
