Moving & adventures with musical play hosted by Tri-Music Together
Time & Location
About The Event
Bookings strictly through the Tri-Borough Early Years Music Hub.
Participants must be living or working in one the three boroughs.
What is this about?
Music House for Children is part of the Tri-Music Together consortium (https://www.triboroughmusichub.org/early-years/) supported by Youth Music to develop and strengthen skills and delivery in early childhood music across the three boroughs Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster.
Young children experience the world around them through moving and sounds in response to people around them and their environment. This practical and playful course shares moving and musical play as interactive, spontaneous ingredients to nurture all areas of physical development, communication, gross (large) and fine (small) motor skills, and the ability for babies and children to develop a sense of self. Participants will have the opportunity to:
• Explore musical games and see how music can support motor development
• Enjoy creating special moves during sound-play
• Use movement to encourage participation and adventures
• Use resources to nurture specific physical skills (holding, lifting, moving, dancing)
• Use existing and new musical skills to develop movement with much-loved songs and rhymes
Lots of useful resources will be available including downloadable songs, rhymes and great websites to draw continued ideas from.
Who is this session for?
Childminders and people working across the three boroughs with very young children and toddlers wanting inspiration on shared participatory musical play that links to learning and overall development. Be ready to move, join in and share your ideas!
