Music-making with the under 5s

Musicadoodledo mixes listening to BCMG musicians with adult-framed and child-initiated music play. Currently, the project is a series of 5 workshops delivered weekly. Each half day workshop explores a different theme and is loosely inspired by contemporary classical music. The five themes are as follows:

  1. Music & Movement
  2. Music & Nature
  3. Musicadoodling
  4. Musical Conversations
  5. Musical Textures

The project is led by Jenny Muirhead, BCMG's Learning Coordinator and a trained early years music specialist.

I think the wonder they brought to the children was brilliant. Also, their enthusiasm really rubbed off on the children.....I just want to say thank you for the commitment, enthusiasm, as well as the obvious skills and knowledge that the team Oozed! Thank you, thank you, thank you. P.S. Ofsted were impressed.’  Head teacher, Lillian de Lisa Nursery

BCMG is part of Sounds of Play, a Birmingham wide project which aims to improve music provision for birth to 5-year olds and their families through working with teachers and practitioners in Early Years settings, and musicians from a wide range of music organisations.
