You want to give the babies in your care the best start!

You know music is beneficial but you’re currently:

♪  Not sure what to do other than singing?
♪  Lacking the time to look for new ideas?
♪  Singing the same songs and rhymes week after week?
♪  Not sure how to choose the right resources?
♪  Lacking the confidence when it comes to music?

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. I will be sharing my knowledge and experience of Baby Music through this course.

This is my second online training course for Early Years Practitioners.  My first, Magical Music Time, has really helped many with their music time.  

If you have any questions about the course please feel free to send me an email at

I look forward to helping you bring the joy of music to the children in your setting.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the questions people most frequently ask us:

Do I need to start the training now?

No,  you can purchase now and then start when you are ready.

Do I need to complete the training within a set period of time?

No, you take as long as you need to complete the training.  As it is online you can re-watch videos time and time again.

How do I access the training?

Very easily! As long as you have access to the internet on a device (phone, tablet or computer) you can access the training. All the training is done on a secure website. On signing up you will allocated a username and password. 
Then, click on the link for the secure website, enter your login and password that’s it you can start your training! Super easy!

I'm worried about entering my payment details online, how do I know it is safe?

My website is secure as can be seen by the padlock symbol in the address bar: Screen Shot 2018-02-01 at 13.13.26.png

All payments are done securely through Stripe; your payment details are never disclosed.

- Can I share the training with other early years colleagues?

Each training place purchased is for an individual to watch and work through. Although if you work in a nursery and one member of staff undertakes the training and then wishes to pass on the knowledge and activities to others in person that is fine. However, that person CANNOT share their login details and the training material in electronic or printed format: e.g. videos, workbooks, checklists.

- Can I do the training if I run an under 5s children’s business?

Yes, the training and activity ideas you are free to use to teach young children. However, they are for your own use. They cannot be used for you to train others for financial gain.

- I’ve done your Magical Music Time training, is Baby Music the same?

No, they are two different courses. Baby Music is much more about when and the different ways that you can be musical with babies. Whereas, Magical Music Time is about understanding children’s musical development and how to lead a music time. 
If you are looking to run a baby music time there is help on this in ‘Module 5 Baby Music Time’ of Baby Music.
