The day will include a range of sessions from individuals to arts organisations to Music Education Hubs, all delivering high quality music activities for 0-5s locally and nationally, giving delegates a taste of the multitude of ways young children can be introduced to music. Sessions will include practical, skills-based learning as well as informative presentations to inspire. Our guests include:

Steve Pickett, Education Director, Halle Orchestra
Eleanor Mooney and Carol Bowden, Early Years Programme Leaders, Sage Gateshead
Jane Parker and Caroline Barnes, Soundwaves Early Years Music Network, TakeArt
Nell Farrally, Freelance Consultant and author of Wiltshire Music Connect’s Early Years Music Mapping and Consultation
Rebecca Denniff, Freelance Early Years practitioner and trainer
Hannah Dilworth and Kathryn Sturman, Made with Music


You’ll be able to pick up the NYMAZ Early Years Songbook (included in the price of your ticket!), a new book of 12 original compositions designed to be used in early years settings, and use it straightaway in a workshop exploring creative ideas to take back to your setting.

We’ll look at the growing trend for commissioning work for early years children, and speak to some of the companies and venues making waves in this corner of the arts.

As always, we’ll provide opportunities for delegates to network with other professionals in the field, whether to catch up or to make new contacts, and we encourage you to share with eachother some of your own experiences, achievements and/or challenges in Early Years music.

Please join us!
