Music in Early Childhood: New Directions & Valued Traditions
09 November 2018 - 10 November 2018
The 5th MERYC-England conference will be hosted by Bristol Plays Music at Colston Hall

This two-day conference aims to explore new directions in early childhood music education whilst valuing our traditions and heritages. You will have the opportunity to reflect on how research can influence five key questions:

  1. What are the new directions emerging in ECME in England?
  2. How do traditional music education approaches and methods relate to new directions?
  3. How do we ensure creative environments for musical play with both adults and children?
  4. How do we reflect professionally on the values and traditions of early childhood music education?
  5. What key messages do we want to communicate to the wider early childhood education and music education communities?

Interactive participation is encouraged through discussion, practical activities, dissemination of research and innovative practice relating to the field of music in early childhood (0-8 years), in education (both inside and outside school), informal learning contexts and everyday life.

Tickets: £55 to £78 (plus booking fee).
