What are people saying about the training? 

  • Musical abc

    “Lots of ideas to keep and use in the future. Different ways of thinking about schemas, that you may not even have thought about before. Like the use of songs we all know such as "driving in your car" and music such as zorba the greek will be just fantastic to do our music and dancing with. Much better than just dancing to same old songs and nursery rhymes that we usually use.”

  • Musical abc

    “I really enjoyed all the different types of recorded songs. Such a variety and has given me new fresh ideas. I was looking for a friendship ring for months and thank you for the link, I purchased one. I like that I will be able to go back into the training to go over ideas as my group develops. It was quick and easy to go into each video and you have a lovely voice so could watch all the videos one after the other. I also like that they were quick and straight to the point. It has also given me great ideas for resources. I think that having a training that is detailed but quick means you dont skip parts and being a visual learner watching the video and seeing the info underneath was great for me.”

Its really useful for me to link the basic concepts and language I target in my sessions to the child’s development and schemas. Music is a great way to develop focus and joint attention, I look forward to planning some music sessions to target both schemas and language development. Thank you.”

    Linking the schemas with the songs, actions and movements we do already; and coming up with new ideas.”

    Dudley Pre-School

  • Musical abc

    “It was very useful to see how what I do links to the different schemas. we use rhymes every day and sometimes even movement in our setting but I did not realise this was linked to schemas. This training has been very helpful and I have gained extra knowledge and ideas to use with the children at rhyme time.”

  • Musical abc

    “I thought that this was a fabulous training. It gave me lots of food for thought on how I can implement lots of varying musical activities in my nursery class, responding to the children's age and stage of development. Hopefully inspiring them to experience music in lots of varying genres, using it as enjoyment and to relax.”

  • Musical abc

    “The training was very detailed and informative. I have already used some of the ideas and activities within my setting and it was lovely to see the children who wanted to participate. Music is so inclusive and even with my terrible singing voice, children wanted to join in which as gives me the confidence to continue as the children do respond well to music, movement, rhyme, and rhythm.
    Thank you so much for the ideas and resources/links provided.”
