Early Years & Family Engagement Training Day

How can we support families in challenging circumstances to access music making opportunities?

How can music making support areas of child development?

What are the challenges in engaging families who are hard to reach?

Led by practitioners from the highly respected and longstanding Loud and Clear Project, this training course will explore these important questions and potential barriers to participation.
