All children love music.

  • The Chime staff visit your nursery to deliver expressive art sessions for the children ages 6 months to 6 years!
  • The sessions can be 20minutes, 30minutes, 45 minutes or an hour long depending on the age group.
  • The Chime staff provide all the high quality, age-specific instruments and props needed for the session -  enough for every child. Therefore schools do not need to provide anything!
  • Topic lists, class plans, report cards and Curriculum Experiences and Outcomes for the Chime sessions are provided for the nursery staff'.
  • Every Chime Expressive Arts session is developed and structured to include the experiences and outcomes required in the Scottish Government’s Curriculum for Excellence and incorporate G.I.R.F.E.C. (Getting It Right For Every Child)
  • Every session involves singing, instrumentation, dancing and drama.
  • In a typical Chime session children are encouraged to use their voices, bodies, musical instruments and music technology to discover and enjoy playing with sound and rhythm.
  • All Chime Expressive Arts sessions focus on different cultural events such as Diwali, St. Andrews Day and Chinese New Year; but can also be adapted to suit the projects currently scheduled at the nursery school, providing a fun and exhilarating basis for learning.
  • Via imaginative play, instrumental work, dance, drama and music Chime provides the opportunity for children to enhance their creative talent, knowledge base, appreciation of music, communication, confidence and social skills – all in a structured and supportive environment.
  • Using a variety of exciting stimuli such as stories, pictures, and puppets, Chime Expressive Arts promotes creativity and imagination.
  • Using Orff, Kodaly and Suzuki methods young children are familiarised with sound, rhythm and pitch as an introduction to learning a musical instrument.
  • The Chime staff understand that all children are different and each individual child is encouraged to progress at their own rate.

Chime Expressive Arts is an entertaining and exciting way of meeting the needs of the Scottish Government’s Curriculum for Excellence, and, most importantly, children have fun through music, drama and dance.
