Little Beats update!

Little Beats is now in it’s second year of a 3 year project, will continue our Early Years music work in Lowestoft, this includes :

Building upon our place based network of early years music providers, facilitators and musicians

Running FREE CPD for musicians, facilitators and Early Years providers

Sharing resources and offering peer to peer support

The initial project began in 2021, following a further pilot in 2022. Little Beats will be running up until 2026 thanks to Youth Music and Music for All.

Throughout the programme will work with locally established and emerging musicians. Our musicians will work to develop and deliver musical activities to 0-5’s and their families and new for this year – our aim is to set up music opportunities for expectant and new mums and their babies. We will continue to improve wellbeing, child development and musical engagement for preschool children by developing the skills of selected musicians and early years facilitators.

Look out for dates to join our FREE early years networking sessions, masterclasses and mentoring opportunities. These sessions will be delivered by professionals, artists and academics. Shared knowledge, skills and experience will develop our facilitators personal practice and creativity. This sharing will provide a resource to deliver quality musical activities in Lowestoft for pre-school children and their families.
