about Listen Up: Music for ages 3-7

In June this year, Music in the Round hosted 'Listen Up', a day-long celebration of the importance of music for young children. Part of our Soundplay project, funded by Youth Music, it offered school teachers, nursery staff, and freelance leaders a wealth of resources and inspiration for their practice. We also welcomed over 1600 children and teachers to two sold-out concerts. Enjoy this taste of the day!
