Illustration by Caroline Blunt Over the last 20 years Alison has developed a unique approach to collaborating 
with Early Years children and their adults. 

Intergenerational activities and guest musicians are two particular features of her work - sessions where parents, carers, grandparents and staff have the opportunity to participate together and sessions in which fabulous guest performers from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds are enabled to share their music and culture with Early Years children and their adults.
 
Alison works nationally and internationally facilitating workshops, participatory performances and Professional Development Training in Early Years settings, performance venues, community centres, schools, parks, libraries and festivals. Alison is an invited core member of LEYMLN (London Early Years Music Leader Network). Fun, imaginative and multicultural, the workshops and participatory performances are full of creative learning opportunities. Sessions aim to spark children’s imagination, develop expressive communication (verbal and non-verbal) and social skills within a supportive, playful and safe environment. A one-off visit or a series of sessions aims to:
Engage children and their adults together in creative activities
Boost confidence and self-esteem
Enhance emotional, mental and physical well-being
Encourage creative movement skills
Increase listening skills
Support language and communication skills
Foster social skills
Nurture musical development
Develop the singing voice 
Celebrate a multicultural and traditional song repertoire 
Promote creative use of percussion instruments 
Inspire creative storytelling Workshops and performances are all informed by a thorough knowledge of the EYFS. 
Sessions can be especially designed to support topics, or you can simply enjoy whatever is cooked up for you.
