Music: The Keys to Language and Reading

Tickets for this event are no longer available.

In our fourth annual symposium co-presented by Musica Viva, ASME and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, we are delighted to welcome back keynote speaker Dr Anita Collins, internationally recognised educator, researcher and writer in the field of brain development and music learning.

Recent neuroscientific research has revealed the incredible relationship between music and language learning. Music and language processing share multiple neural networks in the young child’s brain and indeed music is our brain’s first language. This same research has examined the powerful and effective use of music learning to improve language acquisition through to reading fluently. Music is particularly successful in improving neural connectivity and may support the literacy levels of delayed readers, children with dyslexia and children whose reading is poor due to attention issues such as ADHD.

Come along to this symposium to learn more about the music and language connection and put into practice the effective strategies based on research findings.
