It was a pleasure working with Earley Creative to create our music garden. From the initial visit, Dan inspired us with his creativity and ideas to bring our vision to life. Throughout the project, we worked closely together and were kept well informed at each stage, from planning to completion. The team had great skills at sourcing the materials we needed for our garden within our budget, and with a focus on reused and recycled materials. During the installation, time was taken to share the process with the children in class which enabled them to take ownership of the project. The music garden is well used by our children and has been a real asset to our outdoor provision, supporting cross-curricular learning as well as discrete music teaching.
Really good and we make all the sounds.
From a seed of an idea, our Music Garden grew into a whole school project that Dan and his team at Earley Creative took to a level we had not dreamed of! From start to finish the guys weaved their magic : working with the pupils and staff to gather ideas; sourcing reclaimed materials; constructing musical pods; building an outdoor stage, before demonstrating the garden’s potential at our school music festival to an awestruck crowd of friends and family. The children love using the music garden in lessons and at playtimes. It has added a whole new dimension to the teaching of the creative arts at Oakmere!
Your inspirational vision and commitment to the creative curriculum was evident when you worked with us to enhance our outdoor learning environment.
