We are proud to announce that the Early Years book in our Inside Music range (new edition by Katie Neilson) has WON the Early Years Excellence 2017 award for Music from Teach Early Years. In a fiercely competitive field, we took the top prize, becoming the only recipient of the 5-star award in the Music category. A judge commented:

“During my time trialling all the products it was clear that I kept coming back to this book. It is a brilliantly comprehensive collection of simple tunes with equally simple guidelines to support their use. The reference CD is clearly recorded with a solo voice. There are 92 tracks, covering song, rhyme, movement, instrument use, musical elements, circle games and a range of topical learning. The 11 ‘listening’ tracks incorporate more sophisticated music, such as African and Classical. All in all, an invaluable resource for the age group.”

 

To purchase your copy of this award-winning book or to book your place on our 1-day Early Years course with Katie Neilson in March 2018, please visit our shop.

 The Voices Foundation is delighted to be working in partnership with the Tri-borough Music Hub and a group of consortium partners which has been awarded £100,000 over two years by Youth Music Charity to support music in the Early Years.


Thanks to funding from the national charity Youth Music, a trailblazing project is coming to the nursery schools and children’s centres across Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea, and Westminster. Over the next two years (2016-2018) the project aims to improve the delivery of music for children aged 0-5. It will target work with the teachers in Early Years settings and to help provide more co-ordinated music delivery for children.

Central Primary School, Watford, was invited to make a presentation about music in the school at an international music conference in Sweden in December 2016

 

The Voices Foundation has been working in partnership with Central Primary School since 2013. Over this time all staff have taken part in a tailored CPD programme in and out of the classroom, developing their musicianship skills and musical ear. As a result, all teachers deliver regular music and singing in the class room as well as weekly singing assemblies. The school has also developed a choir which regularly performs in the local area.
