How do we integrate music into other aspects of early years life, and how do we use props or other devices to bring music alive for young children? Do you use ribbon sticks, Lycra, finger puppets or books in your music-making? Or do you make up songs around the play-dough and role-play area?

Bring a prop you use to enhance your music-making with young children and be prepared to share your ideas. And we’ll all bop with a prop!Using elements of ‘Teachmeet’, Play Date is an approach to professional development for LEYMN members. Join us for an interactive session of networking, music-making, sharing of knowledge and practice, and eating!We’re looking for you to book onto the event as either mini inspirer (to share your own take on unique and dynamic ways to deliver new repertoire for no more than 7 minutes), nano inspirer (to share a thought, new idea or suggestion for no more than 2 minutes), or enthusiastic audience members (who will listen and take part in general discussions and sharings).The idea is to bring along something to share however big or small to spark a flow of ideas and discussion – get the creative ball rolling, so to speak.Tickets cost just £15 and as it will be a twilight session, we ask that you bring along some food to keep you going. If you would like to fully embrace the spirit of sharing, then why not bring something to share with your fellow play dates so that you can swap tasty treats during this tea-time session as well as musical ideas!Click here to book your place >#LEYMN
