Jim Gill, children's musician and author, will conduct a workshop for adults on using music to teach literacy and personal skills. Based on graduate studies in child development and 20 years of experience leading play programs for families , Jim demonstrates how active music play provides a context for children to develop abilities, such as self-regulation, essential to school success. Jim’s clever word play and rhymes also provide broad opportunities for literacy development.October 26, 2013 - 3:00 PM
