Family Workshops are 1 hour in duration and delivered in your organisation by our Registered Music Therapist to support your families. They incorporate information and idea-sharing into experiential musical examples and aim to build capacity and confidence in parents to use music in daily interactions with their children. Family Workshops are designed for delivery in your venue, with attendance from up to 10 families with young children (birth to five years). Each workshop is customised to your specific needs; as the host organisation you choose three key focus areas from our selection that will best support your families. All families receive additional resources including music to support them at home.
A Sing&Grow Music Therapist facilitates hands-on music activities that assist children with developmental skills and support parents to relate to their children through interactive play. Familiar and new songs are used in singing, playing small percussion instruments, movement and relaxation. Reflective conversation is interweaved into the session to increase parents’ capacity to support child development in an ongoing way.
Family Workshops are designed to impart information within a one-off session (1 hour), or they can be delivered in a 3-session format to facilitate more in depth learning for parents, allowing the families to receive a more intense focus on each of the key messages.
