Barnt Green Rhythm Time tots celebrate National Early Years Music Week

Bromsgrove Editorial 9th Feb, 2019

THERE was a celebration at Rhythm Time in Barnt Green last Friday as part of National Early Years Music Week, writes Louise Newton.

The sessions at the village’s Baptist Church aim to educate children, parents and carers on the benefits of music in early years development.

Music boosts essential learning skills and helps develop a child’s memory, concentration, language, creativity and confidence.

Over 12,000 babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers across the UK were involved in simultaneous music play sessions including Maraca Monday, Woodblock Wednesday, and Tambourine Thursday.

Rhythm Time MD Kathy Doolan said: “Research has proven that music-making and singing with babies and toddlers is fundamental to their development.

“Many parents go along to classes for fun but are unaware of the long-term educational benefits that they provide.”

Rhythm Time is a not for profit organisation who rely on their sponsors for supplies including instruments, balloons and stickers.
