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.
