Shake Rattle & Roll

  • Saturday | 03.09 - Saturday | 10.12.16

Brighter Sound presents Shake Rattle & Roll music-making sessions for Early Years. Explore instruments, create sounds, sing songs, dance, move, socialise and make a big noise this autumn at Band on the Wall.

Every Saturday morning, Shake Rattle & Roll takes over the Picturehouse for music, movement and fun for babies, toddlers and their families. Shake Rattle & Roll sessions give children the opportunity to explore, learn and build musical skills and understanding. They also give parents a chance to learn new songs and lots of musically interactive activities and games to continue to sing and play at home.

There are two 50 minute sessions on Saturday mornings during term time, at 10am and 11am.

Both sessions are led by Beth Bishop with musical support from Hannah Nicholson. Feel free to attend whichever session is best for you; the age range is flexible.

Shake Rattle & Roll sessions include new songs composed by Beth Bishop as well as old favourites. They incorporate dance, movement and actions, and use toys, puppets and props. Above all they are a fun activity for families to share. 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 are lots of instruments to explore and lots of new friends to meet.

Shake Rattle & Roll music sessions can:

  • Help to develop communication, language and speechImprove 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

Instruments, changing facilities, floor mats, comfy chairs and refreshments are all provided.

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.
