The Lullaby Project focuses on the use of music to support the emotional wellbeing and confidence building of children and their parents and the confidence of staff in their approach to music making.

It demonstrates the way in which active and regular engagement with music supports language development. Through working closely with parents the project is a successful catalyst in building successful relationships between schools and parents. 

Our Musicians will work with up to 15 families in your setting to compose special bespoke songs for each of the children involved. They will run weekly music making settings for a wider group of children and adults in your setting.

Groundswell Arts will also offer a half day of training for your setting to support the staffs development in their own music making. Focusing on parental engagement, bespoke music making, and inclusion.
