Projects

'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.
