Deep Listening: Being Mindful of the Sound All Around

In this workshop for early childhood and K12 educators presented by The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, you will learn to reframe the way you define music through mindfully exploring the sound of your environment and grounding yourself in the present moment. When we listen deeply and are present to what is in front of us right now, we become more responsive as educators.

These practical exercises can be tools to use in the classroom to focus students, explore music and sound in a new way, or to center yourself as an educator and bring about our own best practices.

When: Saturday, April 1, 2023 | 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Where: Trust Arts Education Center, 807 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh PA 15222

Cost: $15


In this workshop, you will practice:

  • mindfulness
  • sound meditation
  • using sound as a tool for grounding and focusing (for teachers and students, especially those with differing needs/abilities)
  • collective sound composition
  • sound hunting and exploring
  • reflective practice
  • collectivity and collaboration

Breakfast Included and ACT 48 Credit are available. For more information, contact Trust Arts Education Center at 412-471-6079.

Supporting Young Children’s Brain Development Through Music

Early childhood professionals are invited to attend “Supporting Young Children’s Brain Development Through Music” to gain knowledge on how to intentionally use music in their day-to-day work with children to support development.


This webinar will discuss the ways in which music participation in early childhood naturally supports the brain development of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Developmentally appropriate music activities can be an enjoyable and easy way for educators to support the development of important structural changes, neurological processes, and cognitive skills during this very active time of development. Attendees will learn about recent research, gain a deeper understanding of music’s impact on the developing brain, and gain musical tools and interaction ideas that support young children’s development.

This webinar is suited for pre-k through elementary grade level teachers. Time for questions will be provided.
