Held in Llandovery College in Carmarthenshire in south-west Wales, Language & Music for Little Ones is a summer course for 4-10 year olds. Affiliated to Language and Music for Life (LMFL), and taking place in the same advanced music-making environment as their other summer music and language courses, we welcome families as well as unaccompanied children ages 8-10.
