Music is extremely beneficial to all aspects of a child’s development. Making music is also FUN! Our NEW online music sessions for parents & babies/toddler and nursery/KS1-age children use singing, movement and play to engage cognitive, language development, motor skills and much more.
We are now offering two 30-minute classes on Monday mornings.
11:00 – 11:30 – 3 to 5 years
This session is aimed at nursery/KS1 age (parent participation recommended, but not essential!) We will play singing & action games on many different topics (counting, colours, the weather, animals, food etc.), whilst developing a feeling of the vital foundations of music: beat, pitch, sound/silence, slow/fast and loud/quiet. Also involving many different animals and instruments.
To make the most of this sessions, please have with you the following:
Shaker(s) – rice in a jar also works
Scarf (or similar e.g tea towel)
A pair of wooden claves/sticks/beaters (wooden spoons/chopsticks also good)
