Musical fun for Sheffield children

Have your say

A SHEFFIELD composer is hosting a series of free taster sessions to promote a new music group for children aged four and under.

Singer-songwriter Vanessa Johnson will launch the Songbuds group next month to give babies and toddlers the chance to experience a wide range of musical styles and hear live instruments.

Vanessa, of Stannington, who has a three-year-old daughter, said: “It’s fun and different, mixing traditional material with original new songs that parents and children can learn together and sing and share at home.

“There will also be free-flow musical play every session, where children can try out child-size instruments, clanging, dinging, strumming and experimenting with music without disturbing the neighbours!”

Vanessa’s work has featured in commercials and Hollywood films.

n The first taster session will be on Wednesday, March 6, at St Vincent’s Church, Crookes. For more information or to book a place call 0114 233 0503
