And this is why all children and adults should have music in their lives. When we are allowed to be creative we are allowed to feel free.
Look at my lovely 4 year old playing doing her rhythm language. How awesome is that?! 😀
Sorry about the upside down pic. So proud of Evie's homework for Young Move-icians, pitch and rhythm on her own. Thank you Dr B 😀
Hi Amy. Looks fantastic. Just wished that I lived nearer and my kids were a bit younger again! The logo is genius! Phil x

A Ram Sam Sam and Seagull Seagull in combination. This was following some spectacular bean bag passing and throwing! Rhythm language, pitch, pulse, meter, listening skills, coordination, team work, and, of course, great fun, satisfaction and sense of achievement! Well done Young Move-icians!

16/05/2019

And here’s what Seagull sounds like

16/05/2019

We’ve been singing beautiful quodlibets: Seagull, London Bridge and A ram Sam Sam all fit together. Here is Seagull using rhythm rods.

Fish and chips medley with celebratory roll!!!

Delighted to finally have these booklets compiled and printed for my Young Move-icians!

11/03/2019

Do I hear a peal of boomwhackers?! Our knowledge of the diatonic scale continues...

11/03/2019

Delighted with my Young Move-icians ability to walk the pitch and rhythm of the descending scale within the Alphabet Song.

27/02/2019

Also beginning to look at ties and dotted notes with the help of Tarquin (ta) and Tilly (ti). This will feed nicely into our Fish and Chips Song!

Moving towards full diatonic scales with Senua dedende and the Alphabet Song. Here we are working on the rhythm of the Alphabet Song using our colourful rhythm rods. Phrase 3 is a repetition of phrase 1 (of course)! We cover ta, ta-a, ti-ti and ta-a-a-a (crotchet, minim, quaver and semibreve) in blue, green, red and black blocks. All very tactile, accessible and geometrically satisfying!

Tony Chestnut in rhythm rod technicolour! (Line 1 is repeated after line 2, then straight to line 3)

29/01/2019

We are very excited to have a new full set of rhythm rods! Here is Tony Chestnut using ta, ti-ti and sh (rest) adding even more colour to our music classes

23/01/2019

Very proud of my Young Move-icians and their music making. Using ‘d s d’ and ‘d r m’ ostinati, bean bag pulse and vocal melody. Happy New Year all!

Lovely to see such confident musical progress from all the children in my Young Move-icians group. They were able to write down this action song (Tony Chestnut) using their knowledge of note values, rhythm language, solfa, the stave, repeat marks and meter. So proud of such a keen group who take genuine delight in their musical learning!

01/11/2018

I hope to see as many Young Move-icians at this concert as possible!
