MA 2Training for those with an interest in teaching music to young children

Our training courses teach early years professionals how to successfully deliver music activities to toddlers and young children. The training programmes are a valuable addition to studies in early childhood including NVQ levels 1 – 3 and ITT courses.

The Music House for Children (est.1994) provides training across the UK. We provide practical workshops to conferences, early years settings and bespoke events. The online training courses give early years teams working in more isolated communities the opportunity of distance learning combined with the option of webinar events.
