18:30 - 19:30 Presentation
The Learning Power of Music
Eric Kane

Ever wonder why we naturally tap our feet, dance or sing to music? Ever wonder why kids do the same thing?

Music and Song are a natural and effective way of introducing -- and reproducing -- communicative opportunities in the classroom. This talk will discuss how to expose, perform and expand on songs in your classroom, including a writing component for more advanced classes.

Eric Kane is a dedicated father, teacher and teacher trainer who is passionate about helping young learners. An energetic and active presenter, he is the founder of ELF Learning and loves making songs, videos and other learning materials for teachers and children around the world. ELF's YouTube Channel helps 50,000 students and teachers a day enjoy learning English.

Eric will also be presenting at the ETJ Fukuoka Expo on Sunday December 9th.
