A practical and interactive online six-week Zoom course is for anyone who wants to improve their skills and knowledge in early years music

The popular course is once again led by Jane Parker and is part of Take Art’s Early Childhood music programme SoundWaves Network SW, funded by Youth Music. This 6-session evening course will provide an opportunity to develop your skills and confidence in delivering simple singing games, rhymes and instrumental work for 0 to 5s.  We will also look at ways of encouraging musical play, supporting it through adult interactions with children and ways settings can celebrate children's musical achievements.

The course is being supported by Real Ideas - the Arts Council Bridge Organisation for the South-West of England who work with schools, youth settings and cultural organisations to connect people with art and culture. Attendees who complete the course will also earn a certificate issued by Badge Nation. Badge Nation courses are written using the Cities of Learning Badge Standard, which is endorsed by City and Guilds and the RSA.
