"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.”

To find out more about the course download our Training Information leaflet. Please note, the dates in this Training Information Leaflet apply to the 2019 course and will be updated once the 2020 dates and venue are confirmed.

 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 were delighted to offer 7 Interactive Music-Making Awards in 2019 to help overcome this 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. We anticipate the same number of Awards will be available in 2020. Please note, settings can apply for up to one Award each, regardless of how many practitioners apply from one setting. 


Applications to the 2019 course are now closed. Subscribe to our mailing list or send us an email for information about the 2020 IMM course.
