Early Years Music Kits

 SOUND CHILDREN

Music Kits for the 3s to 5s

 

Here is the full range of our Music Kits for the Over 3s and there's one for every setting and budget. We call them "Kits" because they're much more than just collections of instruments - they each include teaching guidance and lesson ideas as well as information about the instruments and where they come from.

 

The Kits are designed to enable any EY practitioner, Carer or family member to lead really effective music sessions. No music training is needed as the "Learning by Playing Together" approach is ultra-accessible and, as well as the teaching support that is included with the Kits, there are free video and audio resources available online.

 

Sound Children is the Early Years division of Drums for Schools.
