  1. Katie T. Christiansen

    CCEI’s Music in Early Education course is a wonderful comprehensive training for early childhood educators. It descriptively discusses several musical components, types of music, how music impacts the brain and development. Plus, it includes audio samples of types of music and how they affect us. One of my favorite resources from the course is the “Stages of Musical Development,” which highlights many developmentally appropriate musical skills from infancy through 8 years old.
