Laura Loft worked in collaboration with Trinity Primary School Exeter and successfully won funding from Devon Music Education Hub to deliver a FREE Live Music Tour of Big Emotions for R.E.L.P Primary Schools. This then culminated in a Family Show at Exeter Phoenix.
Laura teamed up with Jay Scott-Hamilton to deliver this musical interactive show.
We passionately believe in the power of creativity to support wellbeing. And we wanted to share this with you!
So if there is ever a time to be supporting our young people's wellbeing it is now. The effects of the multiple lockdowns and pandemic will be felt widely and our children will need support with their emotional wellbeing.
Big Emotions: Mindful Music For Little People is a new music wellbeing resource thoughtfully created as a preventative tool to help nurture young people's mental health.
To regulate big emotions we must firstly be able to recognise them. This book takes you on a journey through 8 core emotions of excitement, surprise, fear, disgust, sadness, anger, trust and joy and offers ideas to help regulate those big emotions. Created by local Musician, Educator & Creator; Laura Loft. (www.lauraloftmusic.com) and Illustrated by Nia Gould.
