SALTmusic online training

Updated: Jun 22, 2021

In January we offered some SALTmusic online training.

What is SALTmusic?

SALTmusic builds upon the idea that all babies are born with innate musical ability and that musical communication can contribute to our multiple forms of language.

SALTmusic offers musical, playful approaches which support speech, language and communication needs (SLCN). It fosters a nurturing, safe space for parents and children to play together in a supported environment.

Taking the pressure off talking, through sound rich/talk poor environments; an improvisatory approach, based on observation, has been found to increase participants’ confidence and children’s vocalisations through musical play. Through laughter, fun and a relaxed atmosphere we can support and nurture communication and the many languages of children.

SALTmusic sees communication as more than words and works with children and parents’ abilities to create an environment that celebrates and builds upon what they can do. You can download the SALTmusic report to find out more about this research project.

At our recent online training session we had some brilliant participants and had an amazing response to it...

"Very varied and vivid, cheerfully delivered. Your enthusiasm was infectious!"

"Interesting discussion, lively footage and practical tips"

We're offering another opportunity to participate in this session on 25th March. This is open to anyone who is interested in developing their practice in supporting children's musical play.

Past attendees have been from a variety of backgrounds - early years educators, learning officers from cultural organisations, artists, musicians, therapists, researchers.

We have tried to create a session that is engaging, enjoyable, useful and relevant.
