This workshop, aimed at both specialist and non-specialist musicians, is an essential guide to using music and singing to develop spatial reasoning and maths when teaching children aged 3 – 7.

There is strong evidence to show the positive impact that active engagement with music can have on spatial reasoning. There also seems to be a strong relation between visuospatial reasoning and mathematical abilities. Research carried out by Out of the Ark Music (A Singing School Is A Successful School – 2017) showed a statistically significant difference in the percentage of correct mathematical responses following the implementation of the programme.

This workshop, aimed at both specialist and non-specialist musicians, is an essential guide to using music and singing to develop spatial reasoning and maths when teaching children aged 3 – 7.

Included In This Session:

  • A comprehensive guide to using music to enhance the teaching and learning of maths and spatial reasoning
  • A clear focus on how engagement in rhythmic activities aids mathematical development
  • Reinforcing how music can be used to help teach specific mathematical concepts
  • Developing a creative approach to teaching mathematics

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.

Free Resources:
