There's a new SANS CD on the way, recorded live on our Flanders tour back in December. It'll be released in time for the May tour of England. This summer we'll also be playing at Finland's Haapavesi Festival and at WOMAD.
And thinking ahead somewhat: a Christmas-flavoured slice of Lynne Pilbrow's FunMusic for Little Kids project has just been wrapped up nicely. It includes some favourite songs and carols plus new pieces by Lynne.
Here's some background: 'FunMusic for Little Kids provides early childhood music education resources for teachers and those working with young children. These resources have been written and developed by Lynne Pilbrow, an early childhood music specialist with a passion to see children exposed to music education from a young age.
The FunMusic for Little Kids resources aim to introduce age-appropriate musical knowledge, skills and concepts to children, and are designed to foster an enjoyment and love of music, as well as develop children’s musical creativity. The FunMusic for Little Kids resources draw on the methods of music educators such as Kodaly and Orff, taking the best of these approaches and forming them into a user-friendly music program which really works with young children. Lynne has trialled all of her resources with hundreds of children over many years and can attest to the fact they really do work!'
