The Family Music Hub is a welcoming, respectful, kind and accessible space for anyone making music with 0 – 5 year olds and their families. It seeks to become the go-to place for community, support, training and resources, enabling practitioners to offer high quality music-making experiences for families in their communities.
The hub will support
as they make music with families in their settings. Together we will be developing a new approach to music-making that values and builds upon the innate musicality, abilities and identities of the families they work with.
Parents and Carers
as they nurture, play, bond and communicate with their young children / babies.
who are at the heart of the hub as we strive to create nurturing musical spaces that offer sensitive and meaningful musical experiences.
Our long-term vision is that every family with children up to the age of 5 in the UK has access to meaningful group music-making experiences.
Through training, online resources and through building a community of support, we seek to support the workforce in their music making with families, and to establish a more family-centred practice nationally.
We are currently in our first phase of action research. Read more about that here!

We believe that everyone is musical and that all those delivering and receiving early childhood music sessions have valuable skills and experiences to share with each other.
We seek to connect Early Childhood Music research with practice 'on the ground'. We also understand how music connects people, families and communities, and want to support this to happen more.
We want to see the unique musicality of practitioners, parents / carers and young children nurtured in a supportive environment.
We aren't interested in a one-size-fits-all approach. We wish to support practitioners to work within their own settings, as they know their families the best. Through sharing collective knowledge and experience, we will create a community of practice and support.
