Presenter:  Kristie Fudge

Research shows that music has the power to affect mood, stress, immunity and social relationships. Playing and listening to music benefits both mental and physical health.

These findings came from the first large-scale review of 400 research papers in the neurochemistry of music which found that music can improve the function of the body's immune system and reduce levels of stress.

This Teacher Forum will present a range of fun music activities that encourage positive thinking, teamwork, creativity and well-being in the primary classroom. 

This is a free event but bookings are essential.
