Early Years music-making: The European Viewpoint

At the recent MERYC conference in The Hague, our London Early Years Music Network presented our acclaimed film ‘What’s That Noise?’. LEYMN member Nina Swann went along and took part in workshops and debates.

It soon became clear that many of the challenges that were debated are those familiar to us in London: How can we involve parents? How do we encourage more free play? Most fundamental is the commitment in the rights of children to access excellent music-making opportunities, so they develop an entitlement to this that lasts through their lives.

Nina has shared her experience and some of the new resources she discovered in her full report here. Watch the short clip of the Omni in action.

You can also download LEYMN member Linda Bance’s presentation on the thinking behind  ‘What’s That Noise?’ here.
