Engaging Children with Music and Movement
This participatory Stephen Fite presentation will give teachers a new perspective on using music with children. He will offer them unique, user-friendly ideas that will help them engage and focus their children with lots of movement, a little imagination and tons of fun and excitement. Stephen will also sprinkle in some discussion on how music affects the brain and aids in Generative Learning, as well as how “chunking” helps us retain information through the aid of a song.
Stephen is an award-winning musician/writer whose albums have received 18 nationally recognized honors. Suitable for the classroom, car or living room, his upbeat brand of children’s music spans the spectrum from Rock to Reggae, Pop to Blues, Dixieland and many other styles. His songwriting and recordings span nearly three decades with 17 CDs and 1 Concert DVD as testament to his work in Early Childhood. Those years of work have led him to one undeniable conclusion: children learn best when they are moving and actively involved. That belief is his daily focus and prime motivation for creating and producing tunes that do just that: let children move.
