APPS 

 

Our Sing Songo app has been created to bring all the fun, magic and musical and educational expertise of Musiko Musika’s videos, classes and publications into an easy-to-use app. All the materials and activities have been specifically designed for 2 -to-5 year olds to have  a great time making music whilst learning at the same time.

Videos: Examples of the delivery of activities using specific songs

First Thing in the Morning

Showing the use of actions and spoken dialogue by the practitioner to develop vocabulary and the use of verbs in different tenses, and to elicit verbal responses and imaginative engagement from the children

Good Morning 

Showing the process of learning the song, and activities that provide progression to develop vocal confidence and strong social and communication skills

The Sparkling Sea

Showing the practitioner using creative techniques developing an imaginative use of actions and musical instruments to illustrate the song 

Hi There

Showing how the delivery of this song can be adapted as the children progress and become more confident in singing solos

Our project WE ARE HERE!! (2017-2019) worked to improve the speech and language and parallel musical skills of children aged 2 to 5 years, and created a strong infrastructure of support in the practitioners, families and resources, tackling the detrimental social and educational impacts of delayed speech and language development and poor communication skills. In particular our objective was to develop an effective training and development model for early years settings that would ensure that the programme (the songs, activities and underlying approach) was embedded and implemented long-term.
