Supporting practitioners in providing a musically rich environment for children
Throughout the Autumn Term 2018, Note Weavers undertook a 12-week programme of work at a Children’s Centre in an area of multiple deprivation in the North West of England. This project, led by a single music practitioner in partnership with the setting staff was targeted at small groups of children where there was identified need. Data was collected throughout through the use of zines which each practitioner used to record spontaneous musical activity and observations of the children within group activities.
The aim was to support setting practitioners in providing a musically rich environment for children and their families which they could continue when the practitioner’s visits ended.
