Children under 5


Musical Beginnings provides young children with excellent musical opportunities including singing, rhymes, action songs, dancing, stories, musical appreciation and exploring instruments.

Research shows that children's speech, language and communication skills are improved through the use of music. Social skills such as listening, turn-taking and co-operation are all central to the session. The main focus though is a fun, musical experience for the children and adults plus a support network for parents/carers.

Musical Beginnings Extra is a music class for babies and young children accompanied by their parent or carer:

10am: children 0-4 years old who are Looked After or Adopted

11am: children 0-4years old who have additional needs

The classes are FREE OF CHARGE because we have secured funding from "Youth Music"

The session will be led by a fully qualified music teacher.
