There is much research available to show that music and speech share a
number of the same processing systems, and that active engagement
with music aids the brain’s early encoding of linguistic sounds. Phonemic
awareness, speech processing, reading comprehension, recall of verbal
information – all have been shown to benefit from musical training. This
workshop, aimed at both specialist and non-specialist musicians, is an
essential guide to using music and singing to develop phonics and literacy
when teaching children aged 3 – 7.

  • A comprehensive guide to using music to enhance the teaching and learning
    of phonics and literacy.
  • Developing listening skills and phonological awareness; relationship between
    sounds and symbols; rhythm and rhyme; alliteration, oral blending and
  • Literacy elements: alphabet; vocabulary development; features of language
    (onomatopoeia, verbs, homophones, etc.)
  • Creativity in language and story-telling.

Time permitting, the workshop will also include:

  • An introduction to Words on Screen™, our easy-to-use software, which
    guarantees that any teacher, no matter what their musical ability, will feel
    confident teaching songs and delivering great-quality music resources
    across the school curriculum.
  • Access to two free songs to use across your classroom or school.
  • Activities Chest – an easy-to-follow activities bank, full of lessons,
    great tips and ideas.
  • A pipe cleaner!
  • A clear and helpful glossary.
