About The Event

What can you expect? 

Emma Hutchison, Founder of music House for Children, will be presenting two sessions during this conference: 

Using stories in musical ways to facilitate learning outcomes in young children

Multimodal awakening captures the essence of how most young children learn. Using music as a starting point teachers are given practical insights on how language and other learning objectives can be achieved through amalgamating mini-stories into well known songs. 

• An introduction to stories and rhymes as a musical framework for learning 

• Introduce and share practical examples linked to learning topics (literacy, mathematics, physical, understanding the world) 

• Using music and words to engage in and create learning outcomes 

• Access to teaching resources, downloads, recordings and links to further reading

Musical play to nurture vocalising and language in young children with language delay and other needs

This session introduces the many parallels that music has to language, the intrinsic and compelling relevance to young children’s lives, and how we can best support early development through regular musical opportunities. Expect: An introduction to how music supports and develops vocalising and speech 

• Practical, interactive musical play with visuals, songs and resources shared 

• Video evidence to show positive impact that music has on language 

• Effective, practical approaches to teaching 

• Access to teaching resources, downloads, recordings and links to further reading

Who is this session for?

The ELSA Conference is aimed at schools and educators worldwide.
