Helping under 5's discover music

Our Tuning In To Children programme for young children under five is delivered at Children’s Centres and Nursery settings. Our flexible models, honed through a decade of delivery, combine singing, instrumental music making and child-led creative learning that supports the Early Years Foundation Stage, bringing children, their parents/carers, professional musicians and early years practitioners together to make music.

Teams of Liverpool Philharmonic musicians are currently in residence in Anfield Children’s Centre and All Saints Primary School and Everton Nursery School and Family Centre (through In Harmony Liverpool).

Tuning In To Children enables the exploration and development of children’s musicality and creative skills, using music and child-led musical play to achieve outcomes including improved emotional wellbeing, confidence, communication and language skills and readiness for school.

Musicians and early years practitioners are encouraged to share expertise and access training, enabling early years professionals to develop skills and confidence to lead music making with their children throughout their setting.

Liverpool Philharmonic has been working in All Saints Primary in Anfield for eight years. Our programme includes weekly music sessions for children in the nursery and reception classes, Tea and Tunes concerts by Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra musicians, training and support for teachers and Early Years practitioners and work to support children with additional needs in the Primary School. Our musicians also support the Anfield Community Band based at All Saints Primary School led by Resonate Music Hub.
