Early Years Workshops – Shake, Rattle & Roll

Monday Morning Music Workshops for babies and under 5s

Interactive, creative, and fun – our Shake, Rattle and Roll music workshops for early years are a great way to introduce your little ones to the world of music-making. Move and grove along to new sounds and songs, and get up close to the instruments of the orchestra. With no more than 15 children in a group, your child will receive individual attention as well as taking part in whole group activities.

'It was great to have music and singing as a support for the early months of parenthood. The songs we learned together have become an important part of our daily life'
