Transform Early Years music provision in your local authority…


ABC resources can help your Educators evolve their daily practice, to better support brain development at a critical stage of life.

  • Effective Training and On-Site Support.
  • Hard-copy resources, CDs and Teaching Aids.
  • Activities presented on Interactive Whiteboards and iPads. Try them for yourself here.
  • Web-based Planning and Assessment.
  • Linked ABC Instrument Bags- in sets of 8 or 11 Bags.    Instr-Bags-Graphic-Just-bags2
  • Strategies for Freeplay and child-led learning.


5 Musicality Areas


Research now shows Musicality underlies the earliest relationships in childhood, and then drives developmentin all areas of the brain.

ABC Resources are divided into 5 Musicality Areas,
represented by this jigsaw, that help children develop:

  • Active Listening Skills –  Listen
  • Gross and Fine Motor Skills – Move
    moving to music and making sounds with body percussion.
  • Instrumental Skills – Play Sounds
    making sounds and rhythms with instruments and objects,
    and exploring pitch with coloured bells and chime bars.
  • Vocal Skills – Say and Sing
    finding your voice through vocalising, talking and singing.
  • Choosing Skills – Create
    creating meaning and patterns through play, exploration and choosing
