An exploration of the rich repertoire of early-childhood music, rhymes, counting-out chants, finger plays and traditional circle and playground games. Participants will learn by doing and will take back to their children lots of new ways to introduce rhythm and music into activities.

The links between music and language, self-expression and literacy skills will be explored; singing games are an effective tool for social learning and offer children ways to use these traditional rhymes and games on their own, at school and at home, with their friends and families. The workshop will also introduce ways to make simple rhythm instruments that can be used in a variety of creative activities.

Attention will be paid to strategies for reaching learners of all abilities.

Please contact us if you need a scholarship.
