Using signs & symbols in community music: an introduction to Makaton

March 21 @ 17:00 - 19:00


This one off session is designed for community musicians delivering sessions with young children who are pre-verbal or for whom English is a second language.

It will introduce music leaders to signs and symbols that can be used to enhance communication during sessions, and also contribute positively to the development of pre-verbal young children’s and neurodiverse young people’s communication skills.

The training will be delivered within a small group (8 people) online by regional Makaton tutor Susie Nowell-Kelley.

Participants will be exposed to around 30 key word signs that will support instructions, transitions and activities during community music sessions.

Please note this session will be repeated 27th March at 5pm. Please only book for 1 session.
