A youth music charity is helping parents and carers with the daunting task of home-schooling and keeping children entertained during lockdown.

NYMAZ have created a Facebook Group for Online Music Activity!

NYMAZ has set up a Facebook group – Online Music Activities for Families – which is updated daily with details of high quality online live music events, rhyme times, singalongs, music challenges, mini-gigs and even ukulele lessons from the charity’s friends and partners from across the UK and beyond. Music organisations are warmly invited to share their content with the group.

Families can visit the group to enjoy a wealth of musical activities:

  • – join the BBC’s lockdown orchestra
  • – hear live music from The Urban Folk Quartet and Baltimore Symphony orchestra
  • – enjoy a sensory music visit to the seaside with Accessible Arts & Media
  • – experiment with Chrome Music Lab
  • – compose your own body percussion with Beat Goes On
  • – meet the instruments of the orchestra with Harrogate International Festivals
  • – create a graphic score with NYMAZ
  • – chill out with #MondaysMadeCalm thanks to Made with Music

Nina from Harrogate recently discovered the group and commented: “My 10 year-old did this music activity today and really enjoyed it. Thank you for posting about these great things.”

Sarah McWatt, Director of NYMAZ
 explains: “With schools and nurseries closed, we know that there are lots of children who are missing their music lessons and activities. Life has really turned upside down for everyone so we want to do all we can to keep music happening for young people. The experience of making music is really uplifting and positive so our aim is to provide interesting activities which can help with home-schooling or be something fun to do during downtime. We’re enjoying working with local partners to curate a selection of engaging, high-quality resources to share with the group.”

The activities are designed to appeal to children and young people from early years through to Key Stage 4.

The UK is now into its fifth week of school closures, introduced as part of lockdown to halt the spread of Covid-19.
