LEARNING Stockport Lullabies
Fri 4th May 2012 - 10:03

Working with musicians from Manchester Camerata, early years children and their parents have been exploring music through traditional song and lullabies. 

Manchester Camerata, supported by the Brian Kennedy Trust, created a project for parents and early years children at Stockport Art Gallery.

The sessions - involving Cellist Emma Dixon and Violinist gemma Bass - encouraged parents and small children to use music together, to help in strengthening relationships, as well as assisting in developing language, musical skills and physical co-ordination in very young children.

The sessions ran for 10 weeks from February and all parents were given a booklet of lyrics from the sessions to take away at the end.
