Understanding Musical Development in Infants and Children

Learning the elements of music is a complex process. In this workshop, participants will explore the power of “enculturation” (what you experience growing up), what seems to be “built in” to our brains, and what elements need formal instruction. The class will outline what we currently understand about how our brains process rhythm and melody, ways to teach music more effectively, and links between music lessons and the development of social, linguistic, and cognitive skills. In addition, participants will analyze the importance of music in our lives, as well as how to understand and interpret scientific findings. There will be opportunities for discussion, and the chance to take part in mini-experiments. This workshop will be useful for anybody who teaches infants and children, or who is interested in how our brains process music. Instructor: Dr. David Gerry

This event is presented in cooperation between Schoen Duo Studio and the MacEwan University Conservatory of Music.
