Everyone is invited to follow us on Twitter for our #feelgoodmusic - during the week we'll be sharing some of our teachers' favourite good-mood music and we'd welcome you to share yours too using #feelgoodmusic. 

There'll be some songs you know and others that are new to you.  Parents/carers might like to discuss what it is that makes the music 'feel good' with their children, listen for the different instruments that might be used and talk about how the music makes them feel and why.
