Sue Newman and Harriet Thomas of Boogie Mites. Boogie Mites offers Early Years families, practitioners and the wider community the knowledge, resources and confidence to harness the power of active music-making each and every day.
In this interview, we discuss how music can support children’s development, including references to the leading research in this area. We then go on to discuss how music supports community cohesion in many different ways and how Boogie Mites can be used in intergenerational music-making sessions as well as with parents.
