If you work with young children and children with emerging signs of language delay musical play can provide enormous support to developing communication without pressure. Word play with sounds and simple melodies are introduced with the chance to hone new skills in spontaneous musical moments.

• Practical, interactive musical play with visuals, songs and resources shared
• Video evidence to show positive impact that music has on language
• Effective, practical approaches to teaching
