Session outline

This series of 3 workshops offers practitioners an opportunity to reflect on music within their setting, and how this can be exemplified in their practice.

Each session will have a broad topic focus and a flexible structure to allow time for participants to reflect on and share their wisdom and dilemmas in a supportive group environment.

The sessions will look to cover the following:

Session 1 – Music or noise?

What does children’ s music making sound like and how can we nurture this within provision? Come along to gain musical ideas, discuss challenges, network with colleagues and talk about music in early childhood.

Session 2 – Musical development within children’s holistic development

In this session Nicola will discuss the value of music in early childhood and the crucial role it plays within children’s holistic development. Join us at this interactive and practical session which will highlight and explore how music threads through all areas of learning and development.

Session 3 - Enabling Musical Environments

How does your visual art provision compare to your music provision?

Visit any early childhood setting and it is likely that you will see paintbrushes, paint, an easel, crayons, pencils, felt tips and many more mark making materials to enable young children to express themselves through the medium of visual art – rightly so.  How do music making opportunities compare to the visual art opportunities in early childhood settings?  Music is invisible and can be noisy and this therefore creates challenges. Join us to gain ideas for creating enabling musical environments and explore strategies to enable music making opportunities to be offered in your setting.

Practitioners are welcome to attend a single workshop or multiple workshops: the cost of the ticket covers your attendance for all three dates.

Session 1: 6th February 2019
Session 2: 20th March 2019
Session 3: 15th May 2019
