The NYMAZ Early Years Songbook: Songs for Modern Childhoods, contains 12 new, original songs that are fun and relatable for small children.
The new commissions mirror modern, everyday life: a long journey to see relatives becomes an adventure; festivals from Diwali to Chinese New Year are observed; a curiosity in exploring the great outdoors is fostered; cross-cultural friendships are celebrated; and the concept of a ‘family’ and its different forms is neatly explained.
This is a CPD opportunity for members of the NYMAZ Early Years Music Network to join experienced music leaders and composers, Hannah Dilworth and Kathryn Sturman, as they demonstrate creative ways to engage children with the Songbook. Come along and be inspired by ways to bring the songs to life in your setting.
‘I would highly recommend the materials for any Early Years class. It could be used as a resource for teaching singing and musical concepts, but there were also so many extension activities beginning to run through my head too, covering all areas of the Early Years curriculum!’
-Jo Mould, Pre-School Lead Teacher/Early Years Lead, Robert Wilkinson Primary Academy
