This course explores music in early childhood and demonstrates how easily music can be incorporated into any early childhood setting without practitioners needing any previous musical knowledge or experience. This course will be interactive and informative, exploring ways in which music compliments and contributes to all areas of learning and development. We aim to create a supportive environment where participants can share, learn and discuss.

• Explore children’s musical making and development

• Discover musical games and activities

• Explore the TMT self-assessment tool; a tool to support the development of music provision
