The Tri-borough Music Hub in London is leading a collaborative project to improve music-making provision for children aged 0-5. Tri-Music Together is offering training opportunities for teachers and music leaders working in Early Years settings (nursery schools; children’s centres; private, voluntary and independent nurseries) across the boroughs of Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea, and Westminster. It’s aiming to provide a joined-up approach to Early Years music-making in the area.

The Tri-borough Music Hub (TBMH) has co-ordinated a consortium of partner organisations and EYFS Local Authority/Children’s Centres colleagues that have a shared ambition to raise the profile of EYFS music across the Tri-borough area. This consortium has been successful in securing funding from Youth Music, as part of a Fund B medium-sized project which will address workforce development in Early Years music practice for both music specialists and Early Years practitioners in settings. This two year project, 2016-2018, will be seen as a beacon for how Music Education Hubs can have a strategic role in supporting EYFS Music work.

Overall Project Aim:

To develop a sustainable network of outstanding Early Years music practice between Early Years settings and a consortium of Tri-borough Music Hub partner organisations to support children’s creative and musical entitlement through workforce development, targeted activity, and evaluation.

Outcomes:

  1. To embed high quality music-making across Tri-borough EY settings, especially those with high proportions of children in challenging circumstances.
  2. To develop a better understanding among partner organisations of the needs of pre-school children in challenging circumstances across the Tri-borough areas, and the parents/carers/staff responsible for them.
  3. To improve the skills and knowledge of music practitioners about the Early Years Foundation Stage including the characteristics of effective learning
  4. To develop and strengthen the music-leading skills of Early Years professionals across the Tri-borough area.
  5. To increase knowledge of innovative practice and excellence in EY music-making across the music education and Early Years sectors.
