Toddler Soundtracking Project

21/04/2020

Led by Oxfordshire based artist and musician Phil Hanaway Oakley, Toddler Soundtracking aimed to develop musical skills, coordination, phonics, story telling, dance and self expression in toddlers (children aged 3 and under). Each session focused on the Adventures of Prince Ahmed and the Original Live Score created and performed by Flight of Helios and the Lotte Reiniger Fairy Tales. Using these, the toddlers were introduced the following:

“Euan really enjoys having the opportunity to use different instruments creatively. It is fun and relaxed while also being structured. Without knowing it he has learnt about rhythm and timing.”

“Thank you for this inspiring day for Hugo! Hugo loved making sounds on the keyboard and drumming for the animation movie. He also loved the shoe decorating and the story and being an elf. He felt very well looked after by all staff, and was very impressed how well you managed a boisterous boy who was there too, so, basically, Hugo felt safe and, for the rest of the day after he left, he was full of joy. He was particularly happy to be with Rachel and was impressed with how lovely everyone was with him. He did not want the workshop to end he told me. I myself saw very little but from what I saw, I was very impressed with the love and care you have all put into it. It was fantastic to see Hugo so confident engaging with another girl there through close interaction and with confidence. Thank you.”
