You have already conquered delivering a music time, YAY!!!! You feel confident in your approach and can see the children having a great time singing, exploring instruments and listening to music. You now want to take the children's musical experience to the next stage by also exploring the Music Elements BUT, one or more of the following is stopping you! Maybe you:
♪ Don't feel you have a clear understanding of the musical elements
♪ Are not sure how the children can explore the musical elements
♪ Are wondering, how can you help the children with your limited knowledge? OR
♪ Are wondering, how can you use your music skills and knowledge to help the children?
Over the years I have learnt and developed ways to help children explore the basic musical elements.
If you lead music times with children from ~3 to 5 years as a childminder, early years practitioner, day nursery owner/manager, or under 5s music class, then I have created my Musical Elements training for you!
The course is delivered online and the first video and Module 1 workbook are available NOW! Access to the training website will be from Thursday 22nd March
Keep scrolling to find out what is included.
How can you approach the exploration of the musical elements?
“I enjoyed the fact that everything was explained simply so that if you were learning about music for the first time you could understand everything.”
The training is delivered online via a website. On signing up you will be given your own login details so that you can access the training whenever and wherever you want, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. It could be used during PPA time or on training days.
The training is delivered through videos, workbooks and checklists. You can download whatever you want to keep for your own use. It’s self-study, so you can do it at your own pace and you can watch the videos whenever you like, as often as you like.
There is a also a Musical Elements Facebook group is just for those taking part in the course; a place where you can share your musical successes and frustrations in a safe non-judgemental environment.
You have already conquered delivering a music time. Yay! Take the children's musical experience to the next stage by also exploring the Music Elements.

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 how I explore the musical elements through this course.
This is my third online training course for Early Years Practitioners. My first, Magical Music Time, has really helped many with their music time. I love helping others and I’m excited to be launching this new course so I can help more people who work with the early years.
Here are a few comments from people who have completed the Magical Music Time training:
“I enjoyed the visual training. Much easier to take in than reading. I found the planning useful as we usually let the children choose the songs, so they become very repetitive. Also liked the idea of having a topic, such as animals or transport. I am looking forward to using the instruments to accompany stories and poems, which we haven't done as yet.” Susan Barton-Leigh, Buttercups Nursery School
“I just want to say thank you for the brilliant course. I’ve now completed 2 music time session with the children, which they have enjoyed greatly.” Katherine
“Loved the easy to follow, step by step training method.” Jo Green, Pre school learning Alliance
If you have any questions about the course please feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to helping you bring the joy of music to the children in your care.
These are some of the questions people most frequently ask us:
No, you can purchase now and then start when you are ready.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
No, they are two different courses. Musical Elements is the next stage from Magical Music Time (Magical Music Time is about understanding children’s musical development and how to lead a music time).
You can do this training without having done the Magical Music Time. Although I would advise only signing up if you already feel confident in leading a Music Time.
I have created a MUSIC TIME BUNDLE to purchase both Magical Music Time and Musical Elements training at the best price ever! Both with everything you would get if you bought them separately.
