Nurseries and schools

I love sharing the JOY OF MUSIC with children! I strive to bring fun packed sessions that leave everyone with a new song stuck in their mind! Activities change quickly to help children stay focused. I am very passionate about making the sessions as relaxed and fun as possible in order to help the quieter ones find their confidence. It is amazing to witness children's progress.

  • Live guitar and singing
  • Ellie’s original songs and rhymes as well as traditional nursery rhymes
  • Variery of percussion instruments and props
  • Puppets as characters leading children through each session
  • Aiming for relaxed atmosphere that helps children learn while having fun
  • Encouradging children to express themselves without fear
  • Covering a wide range of topics (cooperating with nurseries and following their monthly topics if required)
  • Hoping to inspire children and helping them discover the magic of music as their future passion, hobby or perhaps even their career

The sessions are designed in conjunction with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework.
