Developing Skills Ready For School Through The Joy Of Active Music Making

Developed over 20 years of working with early years children, parents, teachers and advisors, informed by their feedback, evolving neuroscience evidence and continual evaluation of our work

A = Active Attention

Lengthen children’s attention span using interactive music activities that encourage engagement

Children are motivated by things they see adults enjoying. Adults enjoy Boogie Mites upbeat original music, different genres, catchy tunes and rhythms as much as the children!
Boogie Mites engages children by covering themes that are relevant and exciting and using home-made props and instruments that promote active participation.
Boogie Mites workshops keep children's attention for 45 minutes following a sequence of activities set out in our tried and tested workshop format.
Extending attention span provides rich language and communication opportunities which are further boosted through our group workshop format where children's contributions are welcomed.

Universal Language
Group music making is a bonding experience. Singing together, keeping the beat together, moving together stimulates dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin and endorphins, making it energising, uplifting and bonding for all involved.
Boogie Mites music activities use recycled materials for props and instruments, so there is no cost barrier to taking part at home or in the setting. Children can access the music activities in some way, whatever their stage of development.
Music is a universal language. Boogie Mites workshops help to break down communication barriers as families sing and dance together.
Boogie Mites intergenerational music sessions provide a wonderful shared activity for older adults and children.

D = Daily Dose

We believe Early Years practitioners and parents who are with the children everyday are best placed to harness the power of music for supporting development. You do not have to be a musician to harness the power of music for supporting children's development. Adults will develop their music skills alongside the children through regular practice.

Practitioners and parents need training and resources to give them knowledge and confidence to facilitate music activities or offer music experiences effectively everyday. Onsite training sessions provide a team building launch to introduce Boogie Mites Music Programmes to an early years setting. Boogie Mites core music programme packs for use in public settings provide online training course, neuroscience evidence videos, single song videos and monthly webinars to extend and progress confidence, ideas and provide music CPD.
Boogie Mites parent education workshops at settings or in community groups led by Boogie Mites Licensees
Boogie Mites digital music packs for home use, including instructor videos to support parents with home music making activities and Boogie Mites App: Building strong foundations for literacy through music.
