An interactive journey into
the world of sound
to spark the curiosity and imaginations
of 2-6 year olds
My classes are a place for exploration. I facilitate musical learning in a fun, creative way, creating patterns and pathways that will last a lifetime.
In a six-session online adventure that takes us from ‘Life is a Carnival’ to the ‘Sounds of the Deep Blue Sea’, we use song, percussion and movement to discover the world and express our experience of it.
Learning Through Play
The early years are the most magical and also the most crucial in your child’s development. My online classes are devised with a profound understanding of the early years (EYFS) curriculum.
Through music and song, we will develop skills in all the key learning areas:
Communication and language
Personal, social and emotional development
Expressive art and design
Understanding the world.
I use classic children's songs, percussion, dance, natural sounds and graphic scores to encourage...
An interest in the natural world and environment
An interest in other cultures, languages and musical worlds
The ability to express and regulate emotions through music.
The idea that music is accessible and inclusive
A sense of FUN!

Once upon a time...
... we could gather in groups to play and sing together
This course was created in quarantine, devised in response to our 'new normal' and out of a deep determination that Covid19 couldn't mean that music had to stop. I designed this course in order to provide my students with continuity in a time of crisis.
I was the first person with reservations about how engaging online teaching could be, but I entered the brave new digital world with a big smile and an open mind and was soon overwhelmed by the response of my students at the schools I work for.
I am confident that this programme provides an engaging introduction into the world of sound that is valuable and meaningful for young children. And so I set up this site to spread the love a little further....

"Holly's energy and enthusiasm is infectious and her class is the perfect way to tire out my son when we're stuck at home! My three year old has been running around singing her shake and stop song on repeat since the class!"
