What is Musicaliti?
Musicaliti is a music education business based in Bolton, North West England. We are passionate about developing musical skills in all people, from children to adults, and creating opportunities for them to be their best selves – through music.
In 2006, we started delivering music sessions at primary schools as after school music clubs, baby and toddler sessions in nurseries, and private parent-child sessions in leisure centres, churches and play centres in Bolton, using a wide variety of musical materials to inspire and develop creativity and relationship between children and adults of all ages.
Since then, Musicaliti has created new and exciting music curricula, written and recorded a number of original songs that incorporate Dalcroze and Kodály and Orff specialist music education techniques, and learnt so much from the the amazing families that we have met.
We’ve also developed private primary guitar teaching, run a local community choir, the Bolton Warblers, and teach our specialist music education techniques to early years student teachers at colleges and universities.
We’ve also begun to use our findings in academic circles, with research papers, book publishing, “Learning with Music: Games and activities for the early years“, released in August 2017.
Finally, we’re starting to look into the therapeutic benefits of music sessions, too, working with the Community Interest Company, Think Cre8tive Group. We are finding more and more evidence of music improving physical, mental and emotional skills in older people, in care homes or residential homes, with or without additional illnesses, including dementia and Parkinson’s.

The Bolton Warblers meet at Lancashire Wildlife Trust (cnr Crompton Way and Bury Road) on Monday evenings from 7-8.30pm, with no audition process and a group of people from different walks of life, wanting to learn more about how music works, and learning how to sing together in parts.
We love MUSIC!
