Shake, Rattle & Roll Autumn 2014

  • Saturday | 20.09.14
  • 12.00am
  • Band on the Wall, Manchester

Explore instruments, create sounds, sing songs, dance, move and make a big noise!

These sessions give children the opportunity to explore, learn and build their musical skills and understanding. They also give parents a chance to learn new and fun repertoire of musically interactive activities and games to play with children from a very early age.

The mornings comprise two sessions, each 50 minutes long and led by the brilliant Beth Bishop and Gemma in the Picturehouse Cafe/Bar at Band on the Wall. Both sessions are for children aged 0-4 and their parents. Feel free to attend whichever session is best for you.
Shake, Rattle and Roll includes some original songs, and lots of old favourites! The sessions have become very popular with parents who want to enjoy a music experience with their little one in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. There is a large assortment of instruments to explore and lots of new friends to meet!

Instruments, changing facilities, floor mats, comfy chairs & refreshments are all provided!

These music sessions can:

  • Help to develop communication, language and speech
    • Improve coordination and motor skills
    • Build social skills (amongst parents too!)
    • Encourage self-confidence and self-awareness
    • Support exploration, play and learning in a safe environment
    • Promote the parent / child bond with activities to do at home
  • They incorporate dance, movement and actions, use toys, puppets and props!
    Above all they are a fun activity for families to share!

    Beth Bishop has worked as a music leader since 2002 specialising in Early Years and working widely with children and young people. She has composed songs, created and resourced her own programmes and has run training for other professionals in Early Years music provision.
