Note Weavers is a community of learning for early years music within which early years practitioners, musicians and educators are empowered through collaboration with each other and find support to develop their practice appropriately thus improving access for children, families and communities to quality musical experiences.
Having secured Arts Council Lottery funding in Autumn 2018 we became a Community Interest Company (CIC) in May 2019 with a board of seven directors.
Note Weavers will continue to work to:
- support early years educators, music practitioners & researchers, connecting, collaborating & enabling (the development of) quality music practice for the benefit of children, families & communities.
- facilitate a programme of projects in local settings, supporting practitioners, exploring pedagogy, researching and the developing new approaches, sharing impact & driving change at local, regional & national level.
- support musical activity within local Early Years settings, working with Music Services, Music Education Hubs and other Arts Organisations to promote quality music making with young children, and support reflective evaluation and the sharing of good practice.
As a collaborative community, Note Weavers intends to have a lasting impact on the music education experiences of young children in the North West and offer exciting opportunities to build partnerships and make a difference.
Our initial funding application was supported by Brighter Sound in Manchester and More Music in Morecambe. Edge Hill University and the Early Years Education department are also a partner and we have also received much valuable advice and support from Arts Council England.
