Join us for a day of discussion around current creative approaches from Music Services / Music Education Hubs who are already working with their EYs Local Authority to embed a sustainable programme of Early Childhood Music Education work.
Exploring partnerships with networks and organisations.
A chance to get to grips with how diverse and complex the early childhood [music] sector is and how this differs from schools provision.
Further opportunities to increase your knowledge of Early Years music practice so that you are able to judge the quality of early childhood musical learning and teaching to make informed decisions.
The day is being facilitated by Jamie Colston and Liane Fredericks.
