Creating impactful Early Years Work – Workshop Series
Last year Youth Music invested over £1million in music-making projects for children aged 0 – 5 (also known as the Early Years). We know that making music with our youngest members of society is important, exciting, and challenging work. It requires dedicated organisations and a dedicated workforce that are skilled & knowledgeable, reflective & adaptive and excited about championing the musical skills of young children.
Through this series of 3 workshops, we aim to explore some of the key ingredients for working with this age group.
Who these workshops are for:
- Organisations who want to develop work with 0-5 yr olds and/or are thinking about applying to Youth Music
- Music Education Hubs looking to embed Early Years in their offer
- Organisations/Music Leaders working in the Early Years who want to reflect on their current offer and delivery.
- Anyone interested in developing high quality, inclusive and child-centred music-making with 0-5 yr olds.
This final workshop led by practitioners from Wild Young Parents Project will explore what music means for babies, how music can help parents bond with their children, the earliest language skills and music and babies & trauma; and how music can help.
