Little By Little Music
Little by Little Music provides therapeutic music sessions for little ones aged 0-3. The sessions are led by Belinda, a qualified Music Therapist who tailors the sessions to the babies and toddlers using her voice and a range of instruments. Your little one will be surrounded by live music with lots of opportunities for them to engage and make music themselves with your encouragement. Belinda aims to create a calm, supportive and fun environment to encourage children's development and also a place for you to meet other parents.
Groups run on a Wednesday morning at Magnolia Centre for Health and Wellbeing in the centre of Neath.
Groups are limited to a maximum of 8 babies.
10:15 - 11:15 Babies (from birth to one year/crawling)
11:30 - 12:30 Toddlers (from one to three years)
£6 per session (block booking/sibling discounts apply)
What's Different about Little By Little?
Belinda is a passionate about babies and young children experiencing live music and being encouraged to create it themselves rather than listening to a recorded music passively.
As the groups are small, each child is sung to and acknowledged and there are lots of opportunities for turn-taking and for each child to contribute and let their own personality shine through.
We also hope that the sessions help provide you with ideas and the confidence to use music playfully at home with your children.
Belinda uses her singing voice to engage the little ones and encourages parents to sing along to if and when they are comfortable to. Children will experience a range of musical sounds and to encouraged to explore and interact with the musical instruments and with others.
Sessions include a mixture of songs, traditional nursery rhymes, improvisation and songs composed by Belinda.
As Belinda is also a Music Therapist, she has lots of experience of working with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and is aware of the many benefits of music for children with additional needs. If your little one has a developmental delay or disability of any kind, please get in touch with Belinda as you'd be most welcome at the sessions and Belinda can support you to engage in a way that works for you.
