Music workshop success!

Additional music workshops will be available shortly, please get in touch if you would like to attend.

Why music?

Music and rhythm playing directly engages the cerebellum region within the brain (an area that is particularly weak for children with Down syndrome). Other studies highlight that with simple prolonged music instruction, participants have increased brain activity. Particularly the cerebellum grows larger than with people that do not play instruments. Countless studies have also shown the link between music and speech development.

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop will enable teachers and parents who do not necessarily have any music knowledge or training to provide meaningful music work with our children.

What will I learn?

The session will run for two hours. The first hour will be a presentation of the benefits of music instruction with tips and advice of maintaining an effective long term enrichment. The second hour will be a practical music session with skilled music teachers to show how this knowledge can be put into practice easily by anyone.

Date: TBA     Time: 10:30-12:30

Venue: East Sussex

Cost: £48 for professionals;  £25 for parents

This is a fantastic opportunity for continuing professional development. If you would like to attend please email: hello@downsyndromedevelopment.org.uk to book your place on the session. Certificates available.
