Junior Music at Home (ages 7-11)

Music activities and resources for children aged 7-11 that can be done at home

Junior-MAH-webMusic is part of the National Curriculum and in most schools children will sing regularly and often learn a musical instrument. The majority of us will listen to music in our daily lives whether it is on TV, through games or online.

We have compiled a series of activities for families to use at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, accessible to everyone regardless of ability.
