Pedestrian’s Little Music Stars was delivered between September 2014 and June 2016 and sought to work with 0-5 year olds and their parents through digital music making technology.

The Music Education Council conference kick-started a discussion on how to move early years music-making forward as a sector. One issue that arose was how to make use of multi-agency working to assess need and secure the interest of parents/carers and children. Our agreed action was to share examples of where this has worked well, so I am opening the dialogue. Here’s a description of a partnership with a housing association and a primary school. Please share your experiences!

We launched this Early Years Group because we are keen to pull together and engage with the conversations, ideas and questions from the Early Years sector. We know that many Youth Music Network members are involved with music-making projects for children under five and are very passionate about their work. Now we felt it was a good time to launch this group because of the new research Youth Music published and because there is so much going on in the Early Years sector.

We invite you to join this group, whether you are working directly with young children aged 0-5 years, or are involved in the Early Years sector in the wider sense, either as a project manager or an academic for example, and participate in the lively conversations we are hoping to host here. We are going to be posting blogs and engaging in conversations too but welcome you to post blogs or resources and start conversations about Early Years music-making.
