Sharing stories and music is arguably the primary method we have of passing culture on to our children. Including stories in our early years music making enriches the activity immeasurably.
This practical workshop is about how to bring the story out in our songs and how to put music into our stories. The material in this course was developed with Pie Corbett for his Talk for Writing project.
- learn new highly tellable and memorable stories and story songs
- learn how this material promotes communication and language development as well as addressing each part of the EYFS statutory framework (both current and revised versions)
- learn ways to encourage children’s own stories and story play, acting out stories and how music can help
- lain a mental toolbox of basic story elements and structures and see how this helps with an improvisatory approach to story telling and making
As well as a comprehensive handout, audio recordings of the material in the course will be available to stream free online.
