Early Years Music Quality Principles

The question of quality has often been top of the agenda at many debates, conferences and round-tables taking place across the music education sector. Sound Connections is committed to ensuring that music education provides high-quality experiences for young people. But what does this actually mean? And, what is special about early years music making?

Over the last twelve months the LEYMN core members have discussed this question in depth. From these discussions we have produced a set of Principles that could provide useful building blocks to high quality early years music activities.

We are sharing these with LEYMN members as a work-in-progress. Tell us what you like about them and how they will support your work. What other tools can you suggest?
