Evergreen Music Notes
Music's Role for Inhibitory Control
Enter your friendly music teacher who teaches students to move their bodies appropriately to the style of music, and who teaches them to clap one rhythm while singing another. These are examples of how inhibitory control is taught to your children through music. The great news is learning these concepts will transfer to their regular classroom and at home.
Other great ways to teach inhibitory control at home? Play Red Light Green Light or Mirror Image (stand face to face and follower copies the leader's movements exactly), or Musical Chairs. They'll be having so much fun they won't know they're learning life skills!
