Video Study for 24-30 month olds – Musical abilities

We have teamed up with Cambridge Babylab to create a fun video study of toddlers drumming abilities. We’re looking for families with children aged 2 – 2.5 years to take part.

This helps us learn how controlling rhythm is related other developing skills.
