Nurturing Your Early Years Music Provision
Monday 15 January 2024
7:30pm-9pm via Zoom

A session led by Take Art's SW Network early years music specialist Jane Parker, and early years musicians Charlotte Gibbs and Lucy Vines. They'll explore simple and effective ways to make music with EYFS children and increase your bank of ideas and activities.

Plus, Deputy Headteacher Matt Perrett and early years musicians Eliza Wylie and Jean Broadbent will share how they developed Early Years music provision in Draycott & Rodney Stoke Church of England First School together through the Take Art's SoundWaves Network SW programme.

Cost: £7 

Take Art is able to offer this training at a subsidised cost due to funding by Youth Music.

Music Residencies

In December staff and musicians are working collaboratively in the EYFS setting at Draycott C of E First School, Somerset.

In early 2024 we are also delighted to be starting four more SoundWaves Network SW 10-week residencies, two in Dorset, and another two in Bournemouth! As you can see we are busy musical bees fulfilling our aim of developing a high-quality Early Childhood Music infrastructure across the Southwest.

Happy Festive Season to you all!
