Learning with Music

Learning with Music is an innovative, evidence-based music integration program developed to promote school readiness and self-regulation skills for young children.

Beginning in 2004 and resulting in the recent publishing of a research study confirming its effectiveness, this unique program trains early childhood educators to integrate music throughout their classes daily activities. As children learn to use music to help regulate their behavior and emotions, music becomes a meaningful part of the classroom’s culture.
