This is an ongoing international research project by the Institute of Education, University of London...Please Participate or ask others to do so...Early Years Music Education needs all of us and our opinions/experiences to advance!

Thanks to everyone who came along to our session at the Music Education Expo. I promised to post links to all the resources we mentioned on the day, so here goes….

The BBC Radio 4 Programme 'Word of Mouth' discussed speech development on Monday, 6 January 2014.

A set of ingredients for supporting creative arts in the early years, put together by the Early Years Strategic Roundtable.

Today’s the Day! Grab a coffee, sit down and join us in today’s#EAChat at 12.30 pm - this month looking at we'll be discussing Music and the Developing Brain - what do neuroscience and music have in common, and how do they help children learn? Hope you can join us. http://earlyarts.co.uk/events/2013/12/4143/

I thought members of this group may be interested in Plymouth Music Zone's video about the 'Tiny Tunes' project. We are interested to hear how other music organisations are finding the importance of engagement of parents and staff in Early Years settings to the success and sustainability of those projects. We certainly found it to be an indicator of longer term viability.

‘Sounds of Intent in the Early Years’ is a new framework for gauging the musical development of children from 0 to 7 years.

A practical workshop for all those interested in learning more about using this technique with young children.

I'm a class music teacher at a community centre in Leicester and we're looking into setting up some music sessions for 1-5s.

How important is Pop Music in your practice?

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.
