Fun group music sessions, for children aged 4 months to 12 years, regardless of their abilities.
Music Club provides fun sessions for children with additional needs and their siblings. Exploring sound and movement, using keyboard, African drums, bells, small percussion instruments, multi-sensory equipment, lights and silhouettes, to give the children an opportunity to experience different ways to explore their imagination and creativity.
The children listen to drums, flutes and piano and begin to improvise on percussion instruments, keyboard, bells or shakers, learning when to start and stop, and play loudly or softly. The sessions are run by our Music Director, Edison Carolino, and take place on Tuesday afternoons at local charity Me too & Co.
There are 2 age groups: 4 months to 6 years, and 7 to 12 years of age. There is also a booked group for a maximum of 6 children which runs every 6 weeks to allow for more concentrated input to help development.
