Groundswell Arts are delivering their project 'The Lullaby Project' in 20 settings including schools , children's centres. and private sector nurseries over the next two years. Working with paired music practitioners each setting works over a half term period on the project. Musicians work with parents to compose songs for their children and the project focuses on strengthening bonds between child and carer, setting and parent, and develop language confidence and self esteem in the children taking part. 

Alongside this across two years also in Haringey Groundswell Arts will run 10 weekend events called 'Family Jams' these events will focus on a wide range of family music making opportunities and provide a progression route from the Lullabies programme.

'Little Music Stars' has a primary focus on engaging early years children in digital music making activity. In order to achieve full participation from children and enhance the activity's effectiveness we aim to bring together vulnerable families, particularly fathers, to work with their own children in group activities. We seek to inspire them to bond more closely through a common interest and goal, learning musical skills along the way. We want to evidence and heighten awareness of musical participation as an effective method for engaging parents/carers with their child's development, aiding the development of healthy family units.
