Early Years

Melody Makers classes offer a unique introduction to music for pre-school and primary school aged children and their parents / carers in schools, childrens centers and community based centers. With different weekly themes, instruments and puppets the classes provide a fun learning experience for everyone.

The classes are engaging, inspiring, motivational and encourage language development, hearing, communication, confidence, social skills and family interaction though musical activities. Classes provide an opportunity to play musical instruments and work together as a group to create music.

Pre-School

For children in pre-school receiving the Foundation Stage curriculum we can run a music workshop on a particular theme – either as a one off or on a regular basis with a musician in residence delivering a requirement of the curriculum.

The workshops also contribute to achieving the goals outlined in the Letters & Sounds Document and EYFS.
