 Magic Acorns & Hertfordshire Music Service Early Years Project

Building a resilient community of early years music practice in Hertfordshire.

Experiential professional development days for musicians and early years practitioners to develop their musical play practice with and for very young children.

Through playful workshops we will consider how we can support and nurture our own playful practice to develop sensitive musical play. We will explore musical interaction, improvisation and how we might scaffold this through playful environments, minimising adult-talk and creating provocations for very young children to investigate through their musical play.

Trainers/Mentors: Charlotte Arculus, Sophie Fox, Abby Page funded by Youth Music
