Songs for Children / 12:20 to 1:20
Parents and Teachers, Do you ever find yourself wishing you could encourage your children to enjoy music more, or provide some new musical experiences for your children to explore? Enjoy singing to your son, daughter, grandchild, or student? Wish that music could help solve some of the behavior problems that sometimes arise with young children? This is the workshop for you. Betsy will take you through a wide range of songs and music, showing techniques to invigorate, calm, focus, or just enjoy music at it's most basic levels. Bring a tape recorder, and expect to sing along. Children are welcome and encouraged, but the workshop is actually designed for the adults wishing to use music more in children's lives.
