Singing with Children and Young People

• Do you work with children and young people?
• Are you training to be a Social Worker?
• Are you interested in developing your singing, vocal and musical skills for your work with children and young people?
• Would you like to learn more about how singing and rap can help children express themselves?
• Do you live or work in Brighton & Hove?

Astonishing results have been seen in programmes where music, and in particular vocal work, has been used as a developmental tool to work with children.

Who is the course for?
These practical music making sessions are for all those training to work in Social and Care work settings who would like to introduce or develop singing, vocal work and music as a way of building relationships with children and young people.

What is the structure of the sessions?
The sessions will include ways of bringing singing & music into your setting, offer ideas for games & activities & will equip participants to deliver them. We will look at easy ways into song writing and rap. There will be the opportunity to feedback on how your music & singing is developing with the children that you work with and share ideas.
