Amplify your school's music culture with Musical Dots workshops
We believe everyone deserves a chance to thrive in education.
We are passionate our workshop content resonates long after our visit. To ensure this is possible we equip every school with a Musical Dots Digital Toolkit and conclude visits with afterschool teacher training. We offer parent sessions to inspire the wider school community through the power of appropriate music for children. Not only supporting pupils further, but their caregivers too.
An initial Musical Dots visit usually includes:
- a welcome assembly
- 3 or 4 workshops (class groups from EYFS and KS1)
- teacher training in how to use our Musical Dots Toolkit to support wellbeing, nurture resilience and invigorate learning.
In addition to our Toolkit teachers have unlimited access to The Dots and our music via our YouTube channel. We offer parent sessions as a means to stretch resources into the wider school community, supporting your pupils further.
Pop your contact details in at the top of this page and we will be in touch with a Musical Dots Workshop Pack. We tailor our delivery to each individual school so look forward to discussing your needs further.
A note from Anna & Meg
We have worked in schools alongside our performing careers for approaching ten years. We (Anna – PGDip RAM, Meg – Extended Level 6 Teaching Diploma) want to shout from the rooftops about the positive power of music!
Working in schools with thousands of children and their teachers leaves us with no doubt that music as a medium is powerful. We know from neuroscience research that music uniquely activates every part of the brain that has been mapped. And our experience shows our music draws children in, keeps them coming back and establishes lasting, daily impact. At a time when popular culture is more accessible than ever, commercial song lyrics are becoming increasingly inappropriate for children. In response we pooled our industry contacts and experience in the education system to create Musical Dots and we want every school community to experience the positive impact chart quality music with themes for children has on everyone; inspiring children, supporting adults.
Having taught in schools ourselves, we have made our up to date, digital whiteboard resources accessible to both class teachers, and specialist music teachers, at a click.
We love introducing EYFS and KS1 children to The Dots, seeing them captivated and inspired, and equally enjoy showing teachers how Musical Dots can become part of school life.
We can’t wait to hear from you!

What teachers are saying
We worked with Portway Primary School in Newham throughout the creation of Musical Dots. The school was recently awarded Outstanding in their 2019 Ofsted inspection: a leap from previously being categorised as a school in Special Measures.
