We Have Books To Support Your Musical Journey

We pride ourselves on offering a wide range of resources to people supporting young children through music. Whether you are embarking on a new career path, adding another string to your bow, or simply looking for new musical ideas, our books provide valuable insights and practical tips to help you succeed.

Our flag-ship book on early childhood music theory, Learning with Music resulted from practical experience in delivery of countless sessions. Covering the leading theories on child development and music education, we include over 80 songs that are perfect for these age groups, with activity suggestions for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.

Our additional books include topical lesson delivery suggestions for 2-4s, and songbooks for 5-7s.
