Executive functions are some of the most important mental skills we need in order to get things done throughout our lives. Executive function skills help us control our impulses, filter distractions, plan and prioritize tasks, and remember instructions. We are not born with these skills, but every child has the potential to develop them, beginning in early childhood.

In this edWebinar, Dr. Lili M. Levinowitz, Director of Research at Music Together Worldwide and Professor Emeritus at Rowan University, will explore the many ways in which developmentally appropriate, participatory, and enjoyable music and movement activities can naturally support young children’s development of important executive function skills, including attention control, working memory, cognitive flexibility, and inhibitory control.

Educators working with toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartners will benefit from attending this event. There will be time for Q&A after the presentation. Attendees will come away with a deeper understanding of the importance of executive functions and how to support the development of these skills in early childhood through specific musical interactions that are fun for both children and adults.
