We have secured funding for Babigloo Music for Babies to enable an exciting programme of music making with babies and their families. The programmewill work in partnership with three children’s centres; one in Dorset and two in Poole.

This project seeks to deliver an innovative and holistic approach to early year’s music making using the classical music techniques of Professor Edwin Gordon. This non-verbal musicology technique engages babies 0 – 12 months in classical music, vocal sounds, and rhythms including baby conversation. The project will engage up to 60 babies and their families, Children’s Centre staff and Music Leader musicians. Training sessions for staff will also form part of the delivery to support sustainability in the settings.

This project is supported by Youth Music, Borough of Poole and independent donors via a Crowdfunder campaign.

In order to evaluate the project we are seeking to work with an experienced independent evaluator who can understand the aims and objective outcomes of the project, work effectively with the stakeholders and complete a final evaluation report.
