The Magic of Music and Movement in Early Childhood Education

October 25, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This hands-on, participatory edWebinar will bring to teachers a new perspective on using music with children. They will see the connection between music and movement and the active nature of the child, as well as how music can effectively be used to meet the cognitive, emotional, social and physical needs of young children.

The goal of the session is to reaffirm the use of music in the classroom by showing how, when combined with movement, it can be a vital and powerful tool in the education of children. To illustrate this, Stephen Fite will break music down into three essential elements—Rhythm, Repetition, and Melody—and discuss how each part affects us individually. When music and movement are combined, children are more likely to participate, but more importantly, will retain more information for a longer period of time.

This edWebinar will be of interest to anyone involved in early childhood education. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.

Stephen FiteAbout the Presenter

As long as Stephen Fite can remember, he has always loved music. At the young age of five, he had big dreams of being the fifth Beatle. That whole British band thing never panned out, but he has found something even better. He has realized his dream of playing before crowds of screaming fans—the very young variety. The bonus is that through his play he is able to touch their lives by aiding in their education. He is an award-winning musician/writer whose albums have received 18 nationally recognized honors.

Stephen has been giving workshops and keynotes since 1986 and has presented keynotes at the following conferences: Kindergarten Teachers of Texas, Oklahoma Early Childhood Association, DLM Summer Institute, Southern Early Childhood Association, Missouri AEYC, Illinois PreK – Kindergarten Conference, Kaleidoscope Conference, and many more.
