What do people have to say about the whole Music and the 7 Areas of Learning training?
“This training has again shown me how important music is in the Early Years, it is a vital part of learning and development. I will be using so much from this course, I can't wait to try some of the songs with my nursery class.”
“I enjoyed this music training. The links and short songs have been very helpful, especially with the letter and sounds group time.”
“I enjoyed the fact that it was short videos and it was full of great ideas , some new but some just to refresh your memory.”
Jumping Beans Preschool
“Whilst I already do incorporate a lot of these methods in to daily routines, music times and activities, it has been really useful to have further ideas, thoughts, songs and resources that I’m less familiar with added. Also helpful in knowing that what I’m doing covers so many different aspects to learning. It has been nice to have my own ideas reinforced.”
“I found the training to be very informative enjoyable and it give me a good reflection on how I could incorporate music into the seven areas of learning. As a leader of a pre-school I will gladly share all the ideas with my work colleagues. We are a high/Scope group and two staff members play the guitar and tin whistlew. Music plays a big part in our daily routine and this training will enhance our music activities even more.”
Mairead Mc Gill
Lavey Early Years Leader
“I particularly enjoyed the relaxed approach and how well the links to the 7 areas were explained. I found the links very helpful too.”
ADO Mini Explorers
“I liked that there has been no time constraints and I have been able to do it when I have had the time. All slides and handouts very useful. Good introductions to different areas and Anne has a wealth of knowledge and gives good examples to follow up activities. I can see this working well with the age group of children I work with (3-5). I look forward to using this module to help reflect and enhance my practise and to use Music as a learning tool and to have fun exploring music through play.”
EARLY YEARS OFFICER BOWHOUSE ELC
“I liked that I was able to work through the course at my own pace, listening & watching videos rather reading the information & it was useful to go back & revisit the different areas if I wanted to. I was able to look at my own setting & reflect at what I do at the present & take in new ideas to make music time more stimulating for the children in all the areas of development.”
Woodside Avenue Pre-school
“It gave me alternative ideas on how to deliver music into my setting. These ideas were thoroughly covered through each area.”
“I enjoyed every aspect of the training. The activities are fantastic and as i also purchased the Early Years Music Ideas it has given me lots of extra activities to incorporate in to my music sessions with the children. I especially like how it was broken down in to sections such as voice, body percussion etc and has made me reflect on my own practice in my setting when it comes to music. Thank you!”
Grimethorpe Family Centre
“It was all very good, and wow so much information in this training and has opened my eyes to a new way of thinking about Music and how I can use it in my setting. thank you very much.”
registered child minder.
“I find it all very insightful, very little music takes place in my setting apart from 5 minute song time singing nursery rhymes daily and a small range of musical instruments available for the children to access as and when they require.
I will be adding a lot, structure, routine, interactive singing time, all of it, it was fantastic”
Childcare Worker for Clearly Kids (Clear Day Nurseries)
“I loved that you put up lots of videos, links related to the topics.I found them very helpful.The whole training was easy to understand and enjoyable. Thank you”
“This was a very useful course and I will recommend it to other practitioners. I did not realise how you can bring music into the seven areas of learning.”
West Cliff School Whitby
“I was struggling with the musical side of learning, due to lack in confidence more than anything, some really good ideas on this which I feel could be easily incorporated into our week.”

Here’s a little about me and how I can help you
I’m Anne, a musician, composer, teacher, trainer and mum!
I started teaching music to the under 5s in 1998 as a qualified primary teacher and was also the school Music Co-ordinator. After a break from teaching, to look after my own little people, I setup Musical abc in 2008 to teach music to the under 5s: classes for babies, toddlers and preschools.
I have worked with many children and have gained and developed fun ways to help children explore music. Through this course I will be sharing my knowledge and experience of how music activities can help children in their Literacy.
I look forward to helping you bring the joy of music to the children in your care.
