Explore the use of playfulness in developing movement and music in early years, for both inside and outside environments. This seminar will provide you with ideas and approaches, and give you opportunities to reflect on your own practice.
No experience is needed; it will be fun, practical and open to all abilities. Thirty places are available on a first-come-first-served basis for £30 each (includes lunch and refreshments). The seminar includes workshops on Physicality and Musicality with leading artist practitioners and pedagogistas:
- Peppy Hills, Dance/Movement specialist
Peppy has worked in community dance for over thirty years in numerous settings in this country and abroad. Her approach is play based, using choreographic devices in a spontaneous way to support movement interactions. Peppy sees movement as an important communication tool and has worked with staff, babies and young children, and parents in many early years settings, exploring ways of moving together.
- Nicola Burke, Early Years Music Specialist
Nicola has a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Music Studies from CREC and has worked extensively as a music specialist in a range of early years settings across the country. Nicola is very passionate about empowering and inspiring early childhood educators to make music with young children and to create music making opportunities within their settings. She strongly feels that everyone is born musical and an integral part of early childhood is music making.
