"You will learn so much about yourself and how you teach and how the children learn and develop.”
Interactive Music-Maker

IMM is a unique learning programme comprising twelve weekly afternoon seminars, supported by a practical assignment.  It is primarily aimed at those working with infants under the age of 5 years, including early years' practitioners across all community sectors, as well as parents and carers, and musicians and music students who wish to apply their skills within a developmental framework. However, no musical background or particular musical skills are required to access the training, all that matters is an interest in child development and the desire to incorporate music into this.

"Interactive Music-Making gave me the confidence to use music and musical instruments to support children's learning and development, but also gave me a set of tools that are transferable in day to day practice.”

 Although our course fees are highly competitive, we are aware that Early Years settings are facing unprecedented challenges to funding.  In response to feedback from our network, we developed the IMM Award Scheme, covering the cost of the course, instruments and contribution to cover/travel, in 2017. We are delighted to offer 7 Interactive Music-Making Awards in 2020, and see Interactive Music-Making reach more vulnerable young children and the people responsible for nurturing their early development.  If you're interested in finding out more about the IMM Awards, download our Award Scheme leaflet here. Please note, settings can apply for up to one Award each, regardless of how many practitioners apply from one setting. 


Due to COVID-19, the next IMM Course will run from January 2021. The application window is now open - apply by Monday 14th December to be considered. Remember to subscribe to our mailing list to be kept updated on this and the next IMM Course, and send us an email if you have any questions.
