Song, Rhyme & Playtime - An early years music project based at Bideford Bay Children's Centre

We wanted to share with you some observations from a Music Leader who has been working with Cymaz Music for the last few months. As part of the induction process for Music Leaders they must observe other sessions, assist on sessions and then they may be ready to take on leading on their own. Here is what Alex wrote about his experiences and observations of working with Cymaz Music in Cornwall.

If you are reading this then you know and understand Youth Music’s vision - that life-changing music-making should be available to all children and young people. AllStars music, our Fund B initiative, explores integration as a step forward for the musical inclusion agenda.

I have often come across the struggle transitioning/adapting participants of small vocal/music workshops to larger ones...........All added ideas are welcome!
