Blacon’s Musical Building Blocks
Posted on April 5, 2010
|Building on the success of the Lullabies project in 2008, Blacon Early Years is an extension of the partnership with the Blacon Community Trust which used traditional songs and rhymes to enhance parent-child relationships and communication whilst supporting holistic child development. The participants created a Blacon Songbook which is now a centre resource for future users.
Children were introduced to traditional songs and rhymes were introduced to pre-school children by a specialist in the Dalcroze Eurythmics method and a musician from Manchester Camereta.
Together they explored the songs, rhymes and children’s stories with pre-school instruments to support the development of social skills and awareness, self confidence, musical skills and wider holistic development which will prepare the participants for their first steps into primary school education.
