Fun Music sessions last around 50/60 minutes during which time there will be nursery rhymes, new and traditional songs, dancing and movement to music, often with props and scarves, and there’s always a chance to play on different percussion instruments.

As a special treat, Kathy always plays her flute, piccolo or saxophone in the sessions, either for jamming along to or for listening time. The children love hearing and seeing these wind instruments, and so the Fun Music sessions just fly by!

Whilst the emphasis of Fun Music is of course, fun, we hope the children will be learning and developing in all sorts of ways, along with your support!

Singing, rhythmic and listening skills
Creativity and imagination
Growing in confidence
Awareness of others
Learning to take turns
Following simple instructions
