"Often a single experience will open the young soul to music for a whole lifetime"
At Keys we are passionate about allowing everyone to engage with classical music in a meaningful way. As our musical personalities are shaped at a very young age, we are delighted to invite the smallest in our community to our half-termly "FunKeys LIVE!" sessions.
These Friday morning recitals will be super relaxed, with sensory elements including lights, bubbles and scarves to play with while our professional pianist Madalina Rusu performs an engaging programme of music. Each session will include a story and nursery rhymes, led by early years specialist and Head of Foundation Jennifer Haworth, to make sure your little ones have memorable morning with us.
