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.
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:
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:
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.
