Welcome to Music Making SENse free online resources.
Here is a selection of the activities MMS provides for schools and learning at home. You can explore the videos as a full, structured music session or watch them individually e.g. when starting or finishing the day (using hello and goodbye) or for a movement break. We have also provided a visual timetable and song/activity choosing boards to support different ways of engaging with the resources. You can follow our presenters Kirsty and Kim or rock your own way - the main goal is to have fun with music.
We hope you enjoy the videos and if you would like to hear more about what we do or are interested in our in-school services or video subscription packages please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
