Participants will engage in fun educational experiences which are successful and inspiring for preschool children. The workshop will be facilitated by Dr Helen Pritchard and her son Marc Pritchard who is a musician, singer and composer. This workshop includes live music experiences which appeal to children’s imaginations and creative response through singing, playing and moving. Participants will be provided with a CD and notes which enable them to access the new and exciting materials in a range of genres. Join in the excitement of sharing music experiences with young children and you will be amazed at their innate and natural abilities. The songs and musical materials are “tried and true” aimed at elevating the level of musicality in your setting.
