Junior IMPs (Inclusive Music Projects) is a weekly music group for children aged 5 – 10 who love to sing. Led by experienced musicians and workshop leaders, the fun sessions include physical and vocal warm ups, musical games and learning the lyrics and simple signs for songs. You don’t need any previous experience of singing or signing to take part and sessions are fully inclusive, welcoming disabled and non-disabled children. We support everyone to get involved and express themselves in the way that works best for them.

Singing and signing is a great way to build confidence and develop communication skills. It’s also a great way to make new friends!

The IMPs are a friendly bunch and we love welcoming new members so why not come along and give IMPs a try?
