Want an enrichment program that addresses emotional, social, speech, motor and cognitive goals? Want one that is interactive, evidence based, adaptable and developmentally appropriate? All programs designed by Julieann Hartley, MT-BC, NTP do just that.
For Preschool and Kindergarten:
Music and Movement Large Group (20 or more): Using the original songs from her new album, "Miss Julieann: Therapeutic Songs for Kids", Julieann Hartley, MT-BC, NTP will be getting the children to move, shake, imagine, laugh and challenge themselves in a variety of ways. Some lucky volunteers will have opportunity to be leaders, giving dance moves, new song lyrics and silly rhythms for the rest of the group to follow. While the kids make music and dance, the staff will learn tips about how to take the music to the classroom and adapt it to better meet their students' needs. At the end, children will have the opportunity to have a copy of Miss Julieann's new album signed by Miss Julieann (a preorder form will be sent to parents ahead of time). Love the group? Schedule regular Music and Movement groups for a discounted rate.
Music and Movement Small Group (20 or less): Similar to the large group Music and Movement group, but instead of just some children having the opportunity to lead and give input on dance moves, song lyrics and silly rhythms, all the children will have the opportunity to do so. Each group and song becomes customized to meet the imagination of all the children in the group. Program can be made shorter, in order to visit multiple classrooms of 20 less each, rather than one large assembly. In a smaller group setting, there is time for the children to all try playing a variety instruments as well. While children and dancing and singing, staff will be learning tips about how to use the music in the classroom. At the end, children will have the opportunity to have a copy of Miss Julieann's new album signed by Miss Julieann (a preorder form will be sent to parents ahead of time). Love the group? Schedule regular Music and Movement groups for a discounted rate.
Assemblies (50 or more students): Using childhood classics, as well as original songs from her new album, "Miss Julieann: Therapeutic Songs for Kids", Julieann Hartley, MT-BC, NTP will be getting the students to move, shake, imagine, laugh and challenge themselves in a variety of ways. Similar to the music and movement classes, but adapted to meet the developmental needs of older children (K-6). With an emphasis on motor skills, imagination, emotional expression and developing coping skills, all students will walk away with a few more tools in their tool belt. Depending on the size of the assembly, there will opportunities for children to volunteer to be leaders to show off an instrument, give a dance move or give a new song lyric. Smaller groups will have the opportunity to play shakers as well! Need a particular theme like science, emotional regulation, animals, a holiday, etc? Just let us know and Miss Julieann will design something fun for you.
Classroom Visits (50 or less students): Similar to the assembly programs and music and movement for the younger children, just adapted to challenge the developmental needs of the age of the classroom. For example, a first grade classroom visit will use similar songs as a third grade classroom visit, just slightly adapted to be the appropriate level of challenge to a first grader, rather than a third grader. In smaller classroom visits, all the students will have the opportunity to play shakers to music and some might even get the chance to lead the group in songs and games with drums! Again, all programs are stimulating, interactive and have plenty of room for imagination, dancing, spontaneity and fun. Need a particular theme like science, emotional regulation, animals, a holiday, etc? Just let us know and Miss Julieann will design something fun for you.
Songwriting Workshop (3rd grade and up): Intended for older kids and smaller groups, these programs address emotional expression, focusing on using songwriting as a coping skill. As a group, we will explore the different emotions music can make us feel and discuss what to do when we feel certain emotions. Together, we will adapt songs to better show our emotions, as well as write a group song! Teachers are welcome to record our final group song as something to use all year round to connect your classroom. Need a different theme other than emotional expression? Want to use songwriting in your science, math, english or history class to help the children learn a new way to better encode information, or put their new knowledge to use in a fun way? Let us know and Julieann Hartley, MT-BC, NTP can get creative!
