Music For Little Ones Workshops at Ballina Salmon Festival

As part of this year’s children’s arts programme, we are delighted to be offering a morning of special music workshops for the under 4s. Music for Little Ones at Ballina Salmon Festival is sure to be in demand. 

Each workshop will last for 40 minutes and parents are invited to come along as well and to join in!

Activities will include, finger plays, bouncing songs, action songs, rhymes, creative movement and instrument playing to name but a few.  These are all introduced through play and performance using a variety of colourful and multi-sensory props as well as finger and hand puppets.

This will be a great way to introduce music to young children, as well as for parents who might like to continue the music-making at home too.
