In service training: -
We have delivered many very successful music workshops to a variety of settings. These have included a conference at Bournemouth University, several nursery/playgroup settings and child-minders groups Our Twinkle Toes workshop looks at how to have fun with music. All the songs and activities develop children’s speaking and listening skills within the EYSF framework. It is a very hands on session. We will work with percussion instruments, drums (large and small) and a parachute. We will look at new songs and give you ideas on how to use old favourites. Discover various ways of how to include contrast; anticipation; actions; props etc. to enhance your teaching. Explore ideas to help children follow instructions, share, cooperate and turn take through music. We will offer practical tips and suggestions (that have worked well for us) on how to use music as a vehicle to support children’s learning throughout the whole curriculum
Birthday parties are tailor made for your child. We include percussion and singing, activities with our large drum and songs with the parachute. We will include your child’s favourite songs and activities. We can be booked for 30min session or 45mins. Prices from £60.
We have worked in many different Children Centres throughout the area over the last 9 years. (Townsend, Somerford, West Moors, Ferndown, Verwood, Boscombe, Stokewood , Wimborne)
We have been involved in open days, family fun days as well as running weekly sessions
Obviously funding has changed considerably over the years. Some Children Centres have been able to employ us and offer their parents/careers free sessions, others have charged a subsided rate for the session and others have covered our travelling costs and provided a free room.
