Videos are brilliant for explaining and showing things that would be impossible to put over in words and they're fun too. Here you can choose from a selection of short video clips showing the Sound Children and Musical Baby Bonding approaches in practice in a variety of settings. See just how little you need to do to run a successful music session and how it's often best to follow the children's lead. Very young children are natural musicians and you can learn as much from them as they can from you.
