Sound Connections and the London Early Years Music Network (LEYMN) invite you to a day’s seminar looking at the role of parents and families in supporting music-making outside of early years settings. The day will give music leaders working with young children and practitioners from early years settings the opportunity to hear a range presentations, discuss topics and network.

Our keynote speech from Linda Bance, nursery nurse, musician, and education consultant for BBC’s Cbeebies music programme Zingzillas, will contemplate the mix of different approaches from different sources that makes the world of music making with young children so exciting and vibrant.

A full programme will be released in the coming weeks.

Feedback from delegates from our last seminar ‘Knees Bent, Arms Stretched, Ra, Ra Ra’:

“A very stimulating day, it was clear from discussion with other practitioners that this was of great value, enabling them to revitalise their perspectives, approach and enthusiasm for their work. Carry on!”

“There are lots of different aspects to this topic. A day isn’t long enough!”

“I’ll take away more confidence to carry on with what I am doing, add new resources, songs and share practice. Thank you for this fantastic day. So much support and ideas, a great balance.”

"Just to say a huge thanks ... I am looking forward to progressing with this project thanks to your support, advice and guidance"
