Early Years DNAs have now sold out!

Thank you to everyone who has been in touch about our Early Years DNAs. These are now sold out due to high demand. We are looking at further ways to offer this service in future. Keep checking back for more information and follow our early years work on Twitter using #LEYMN.

About our Early Years DNAs

Sound Connections has provided hundreds of music leaders with one-to-one bespoke advice through our Development Needs Analysis sessions. We are now offering this opportunity to discuss your professional development ideas and aspirations with an early years focus. Linda Bance from our London Early Years Music Network (LEYMN) will hold a day of Early Years DNAs on October 24th.

Linda Bance is renowned nationally and internationally for her work promoting music as an essential part of young children’s development and wellbeing. Her career path has allowed her to lead projects within Children Centres, music services and professional orchestras in addition to lecturing and presenting on the subject.  Linda is co-author of the successful early years music book ‘Voiceplay’ and has recently published her new book ‘Music for Early Learning’.

Linda is music education consultant for the BAFTA winning original series Zingzillas on CBeebies. She is a member of MERYC EU (Music Education Research of Young Children) and her post as co-chair of primary focus group for NAME (National Association of Music Educators) allowed her to support specialists and non-specialists in highlighting the important work of encouraging families to participate in music making activities with families and babies and young children. Throughout her career Linda has been keen to help musicians and early years practitioners  recognise their strengths in the arts and develop these as part of their career path.
