In Early Years, music is an essential form of expression that can actively foster positive social, physical, mental and academic progression in children. In this workshop we will explore the enabling power of music by using best practice examples, theories of intellectual, physical, social and mental development and demonstrate how engaging in high quality musical activities can benefit every child at this key stage of development. Course participants will be able to apply these skills in their own settings, within the development of the Implementation phase of the Education Inspection Framework.
