Event Information

DESCRIPTION:  Project MMINDS was created by a team of musician and educators to support teachers of young children and students with special needs to embrace learning through music. This workshop is designed to provide teachers with fun ways to foster social skills, academics, and art through music and movement. It is researched based and supports the diverse needs of children today.

The workshop will provide all participants with curriculum resources, videos, and music you can use immediately with your students. In addition this session will provide participants with curriculum resources for the Season of Winter (January, February, and March). You will take home a “how to make a drum project” and Hello and Good-bye posters, and your vision of how Project MMINDS will support your work.
