OUR APPROACH IN ACTION
This video example introduces the first course in our series
Early Year's Student from
"I learnt that music can be taught with basically everything, and music is a holistic opportunity for the children to develop"
Early Years Educator
"I found the course very well placed in its content. The videos and the writing together makes the course more interactive and quicker to absorb for someone like me with dyslexia."
Early Years Music Educator
"It was very relevant. The activities are a good way to utilise what you've learned in a practical context, and the songs that are taught in the videos are ones I have found really effective in practice."
