SING-ALONG with ELeanor

Eleanor has created a wonderful online teaching resource, a musicianship course for children aged between 2 and 6. It’s called ‘Let’s Begin’ – A 10 day course. It involves a series of videos introducing children, and their parents, to music in a seamless way, through the use of simple songs and rhythmic words. During this time when we don’t know when we might be able to return to our children’s music sessions, this could be the ideal thing!

THE SWAN AND THE ENCHANTED LAKE

‘The Swan and the Enchanted Lake’ is an original children’s story written and designed by enSEmble26, about nature, destruction, magic and music.  With dancing fairies, noisy diggers and an enchanted lake it is bound to captivate the imagination of all children, big and small!  The story is illustrated by some of the most beautiful works of classical music.
