Workshop details


Research shows that regular child and adult led musical activity in the early years supports the development of language and communication, physical development, personal, social and emotional development and provides opportunities to examine and explore the world around us and develop maths and literacy skills.


Wendy explains that, although music is mentioned briefly in the expressive arts and design area of the early years framework, it can also be an incredibly valuable tool for delivering both prime and specific areas of learning and development. There is also, of course, the case for including music in our curriculum for music’s sake. It brings people joy and comfort, it can soothe us, energise us, make us laugh and give us a sense of wellbeing. Music communicates and brings us together in a shared enjoyment and helps us forge relationships.
