Making music with your baby is a great way to help develop their brain, build their language skills, and offers a unique and fun bonding experience for you and your little one.

A Better Start Southend has teamed up with the Southend YMCA and local mums and dads to deliver Umbilical Chords; a weekly term-time music group for children aged 0-2 years of age within A Better Start Southend wards. Come along with your baby and make some memories at our exciting music sessions!

Our groups are led by a qualified Early Years Practitioner and a Music Tutor, and you don’t need to have any previous knowledge or experience of music to get involved.
