TRAINING INITIATIVES

Are you looking for new ways to make music with families? 

Our training starts by exploring the skills, experience and knowledge practitioners bring to their practice. It then builds on this by developing their musical skills, introducing and exploring important learning from relevant research and guiding practitioners as they plan and deliver activities using a wide range of repertoire. 

In this way, The Family Music Hub will take participants on a journey to adopt a fresh new approach to family music making.

OUR VALUES

""

Respect

We acknowledge that everyone is musical and that all those delivering and participating in early childhood music sessions have valuable skills and experiences to share with each other.

""

Flexible

We aren't interested in a one-size-fits-all approach. We support practitioners to work within their own settings, as they know their families the best.

""

Nurturing

We want to see the unique musicality of practitioners, parents, carers and young children nurtured in a supportive environment.

""

Evidence-based

We make research relevant and connect it with practice.

""

Community Focused

Music connects people, families and communities, and we want to support this to happen more.

""

TRAINING STRANDS

Here are some of the strands we include in our training initiatives:

  • songs – how, when and why to use old favourites and introduce new ones 

  • research made relevant for practice –   how it relates to your practice and how you can use this

  • musical elements –  the building blocks of music and how this relates to learning and development

  • musical confidence – how to find your musical self and build self-confidence

  • planning – how to create nurturing musical spaces and how to plan group sessions

  • communication – developing skills to support meaningful connections with families

We have helped parents recognise the importance of musical play and creating an enriched environment for musical exploration in their day-to-day home lives.
