Does my training help?

Yes! Here are a few comments from my other online training course:

Magical Music Time: “I enjoyed the videos and weekly challenges. It was great to do things step by step, building on my learning” Sam Boyd, Sam Boyd's Childminding

Magical Music Time: “Loved the easy to follow, step by step training method.” Jo Green, Preschool Learning Alliance

Musical Elements: “I enjoyed the fact that everything was explained simply so that if you were learning about music for the first time you could understand everything.” Jenny Hughes

Music and the 7 Areas of Learning: “This training has again shown me how important music is in the Early Years, it is a vital part of learning and development. I will be using so much from this course, I can't wait to try some of the songs with my nursery class." Becca

Music and Schemas: “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 don't skip parts and being a visual learner watching the video and seeing the info underneath was great for me.” Rachel Kirkpatrick. Rose Wellbeing Therapies

Parachute, Lycra and Friendship Ring “I was brought a parachute a couple of years ago and never used it, it sat in the box., on my shelf. After doing this training I use it all the time, in fact I now have 3.  I have also made several friendship rings and have stretchy material.  I would never have used these resources without this training. Thank you” Deb Williams (in Perth Australia)

Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the questions people most frequently ask us:

How do I access the training?

Very easily! As long as you have access to the internet on a device (phone, tablet or computer) you can access the training. All the training is done on a secure website. Once it has launched you will be allocated a username and password. 
Then, click on the link for the secure website, enter your login and password that’s it you can start your training! Super easy!

- Can I share the training with other early years colleagues?

Each training place purchased is for an individual to watch and work through. Although if you work in a nursery and one member of staff undertakes the training and then wishes to pass on the knowledge and activities to others in person that is fine. However, that person CANNOT share their login details and the training material in electronic or printed format: e.g. videos, workbooks, checklists

- Can I do the training if I run an under 5s children’s business?

Yes, the training and activity ideas you are free to use to teach young children. However, they are for your own use.  THEY CANNOT BE USED FOR YOU TO TRAIN OTHERS FOR FINANCIAL GAIN OR BE ADDED TO A FRANCHISE CURRICULUM

I'm worried about entering my payment details online, how do I know it is safe?

My website is secure as can be seen by the padlock symbol in the address bar: Screen Shot 2018-02-01 at 13.13.26.png

All payments are done securely through Stripe; your payment details are never disclosed.

'30 Days Access' options, when does my access end?

You get exactly 30 days (720 hours) from purchase. 

So for example, if you purchased '30 Days Access' at 1 pm today your access will end at 1 pm in 30 days.

'30 Days Access' options, can you extend my access beyond the 30 days?

Sorry no, you will get exactly 30 days of access.  You can purchase an additional '30 Days Access' when it expires or, if you're not sure how long you wish to access the training, please consider purchasing 'Access for as long as you need to complete the training' instead.

Will the training show demonstrations with groups of children?

Sorry no, for child protection reasons this is not possible.

A little about me…

I started teaching music to the under 5s in 1998 as a qualified primary teacher and was also the school Music Co-ordinator.  After a break from teaching, to look after my own little people, I setup Musical abc in 2008 to teach music to the under 5s.  I have worked with many children and have gained and developed fun ways to help children explore music.

In 2015 I started created music training for early years professionals through ‘Music in the Early Years' and  have helped over 1000 early years practitioners with music in their early years setting
