SKU: MusicP&PAutumn2021

Course description

This course will support you to develop your music provision and practice. The sessions will demonstrate how easily music practice and provision can be developed in settings the need for any previous musical knowledge or experience. Music and sound are a core aspect of children’s development; this training will explore this and offer you practical ideas to implement in your practice. The training will carefully explore the EYFS reforms. Together we will look at Expressive Arts and Design, as well as all of the prime and specific areas and the place that music has throughout the EYFS, particularly communication and language; personal, social and emotional development.

The sessions will invite you to consider children’s musical identities and preferences enabling participants to develop practice that is inclusive, meaningful and connects with children. The two sessions will create space for discussion and reflection and will support you to consider your role in nurturing children’s musicality.
