FIMC-VI has partnered with Steve Turner of Giving Tree Music (the drum circle guy!) to provide a series of short videos that use music to teach concept development, such as body awareness, environmental sounds, nature sounds and more. These videos can be used by teachers, parents, students, or anyone else who is interested, so share them far and wide! The videos can also be found on our YouTube page under the “Concept Development with Music” playlist. More videos will be coming, so be sure to subscribe to our YouTube page and get all the latest notifications. Happy jamming!
