Music is one of the great mysteries of human experience. Although it provides no obvious direct benefit to survival, the human brain seems to be hardwired for music. If it is so important to our mind and mindset why are we not using it more in the classroom? Working in healthcare and education Shannon has witnessed the power of music and has developed specific considerations and strategies that can be used in all classrooms, as well as at home, to increase feelings of connection and improved learning states.

Learn how:

• the areas of the brain react to music and why this matters to academic learning.

• to bridge culture and economic differences in the classroom – creating stronger feelings of connection between all students.

• children with various abilities respond to music and how music can be used to create equitable experiences.

• music can reduce and eliminate stress and anxiety when used with intention.

• can give students the opportunity to contribute to something greater than themselves.
