Music and the Whole Brain Part 2 and a Special Announcement

Happy Holidays!
I have a special announcement this month to go along with my follow up blog from November.  As a board certified music therapist with experience leading groups and directing choirs, I have been asked to direct a newly forming choir for children on the autism spectrum.  This choir will be housed at Belmont University and is privately funded, so it is FREE to children ages 8-13.  Please share this exciting opportunity with families who may be interested in having their child participate in the the choir!

risingstarchoirnashville@gmail.comThe Rising Star Music Fund is a 501(c)(3) public charity dedicated to supporting music
education, encouraging the study and making of music, and providing opportunities for children with special needs or in under-served communities to access well-balanced, comprehensive, and high-quality programs of music instruction.
photo-mixed-age-class-3Last month, I wrote about the four domains of brain development and how music can help support each domain: Cognitive / Academic, Communication, Sensorimotor, and Social / Emotional.  In this post, I want to share with you some online resources that support the use of music to help child development with both typically developing children and those with special needs. Music Together, LLC has previously published some great bogs on the research supporting the link between music making and child development.  Current research has shown that music affects the whole brain.  Music is essential to early childhood development as a support to holistic learning.
These blogs sight current research into brain development.  After reading through this post, be sure to check these articles out.
Another great research was recently published: Theory-guided Therapeutic Function of Music to facilitate emotion regulation development in preschool-aged children.
Other cool articles I have found are:
Singing Calms Baby Longer than Talking
How Music Trumps Reading for Child Development
11 Ways to Encourage Music in Kids
Be sure to check out the new schedule and registration for Music Together classes and Music Together within Therapy through In Harmony Music of Middle Tennessee.  New classes include a Babies class, a Music Together class for children ages 6 months to 6 years with special needs, and Music Together Within Therapy small group therapy for children ages 3-8. Be sure to sign up for the In Harmony Music of Middle Tennessee newsletter to receive all the latest news in child development and music making right to your inbox! Also, please share the good word on your social media!
