We work with Children’s Centres to provide a range of activities for families and young children. To access these free activities families must be registered with the relevant children’s centre. The workshops we are able to offer are as follows – 

Toddler Dance

A fun and creative class for toddlers to dance with their grown up. This is a great session for early development. As well as developing physical skills and spatial awareness it’s great for improving listening, responding to instructions and sharing with other children – many of the skills they will need at school. Expect movement, games, songs and storytelling to spark the imagination.

Suitable for 18months – 4 years (babies welcome too)

Toddler Music

Musical games, stories and fun for toddlers and their grown-ups. Sing well known songs together and explore a variety of instruments. This is a great session for early development. As well as developing physical skills and spatial awareness it’s great for improving listening, responding to instructions and sharing with other children – many of the skills they will need at school. Expect movement, games, songs and storytelling to spark the imagination.

Suitable for 18months – 4 years (babies welcome too)

Go Create

A fun introduction to the creative performing arts through dance and drama games, delivered by The Garage tutors.

YOUTH MUSIC REGIONAL WORK 

Innovate>Test>Embed ‘by, for & with Young People’

The Garage believes that music should be for all young people, who should be central to their own musical journeys. 

We are working closely with music deliverers and partner organisations across the region to push boundaries and break down barriers to participation, using an ‘innovate, test, embed’ approach which explores authentic ways of developing quality music provision ‘by for and with’ young people.

This is a strategic programme of work, which sees The Garage working nationally with the National Foundation for Youth Music and 12 national colleagues, all working towards a ‘musically inclusive’ England.

The Garage strives to keep music participation fresh, engaging and relevant, enabling young people to develop musically, personally and socially and helping music deliverers to develop their practice in new ways.
