Get ready for “PAM PAM concerts” for families, the only concert in London inspired by the Gordon’s Music Learning Theory (MLT).
No stage or chairs: children and parents in the centre of the space, comfortably seated or lying, embraced by the sound of the musicians around them.
An experience of direct contact with the music, for children aged 0 to 5.
What are PAM PAM CONCERTS?
Short melodic and rhythmic songs without words that are designed for the musical development of children.
PAM PAM – CHRISTMAS CONCERTS host musicians who sing and perform pieces from classical and traditional repertoire as well as original songs composed under the principles of MLT and of course… some Christmas songs! The musicians interact with the children and their families to create a magical space for listening and learning.
With Valeria Pozzo (violin, charrango, voice), Tiziana Pozzo (piano, ukulele, percussions, voice), Joe Steel (saxophone), Sam West (guitar and voice), Stefano Padoan (piano and voice).
"I took my daughter from 3 months till 15 months old and she simply loved Tiziana's workshops, and so did I.
They are unlike any other workshops I've been to: really about experimenting and interacting with sounds, rhythm and music, allowing each child to express their response without any expectation. Each session is fun and also builds from one to another to enable a child to play more and more with music.
I wish I could still attend and would recommend her unequivocally to every child and parent!"
— Edwina, Ayla's mum (15 months old)
It is the most interactive class we have been to . I also really like the idea of teaching children without lyrics. It was way more effective and engaging than the usual music workshops which you repeatedly sing the same songs and kids don’t seem to enjoy as much.
What struck me from the moment we came in was the welcoming, friendly atmosphere that the teachers were able to create. Addressing each child by their name, noticing them and their interests - it makes such a difference. And the class itself was so enjoyable. I was only planning to try it once, since it’s not super close to us, but now thinking I will commit to coming weekly. It’s one that I will actually really enjoy going to with my son! If you are looking for a better way to introduce music than nursery rhymes (let’s face it, they get annoying after some time), this class is the answer.
This is a fantastic music class for babies and toddlers. Most of the other music classes have instructors speaking so quickly it’s difficult to keep up- even as an adult! The children in this class were so happy to understand everything, not have verbal communication going right over their heads for 90% of the time. Really would recommend this class for anyone open minded who loves music and wants their child to feel included.

Hailed by Jools Holland as "A great vocalist", Sam West's story through music has taken many different turns. Samuel trained as an Opera and Classical singer before being seduced by the soulful sounds of singers like Ray Charles, Van Morrison and Otis Redding and he dedicated his time to developing his passions in blues, soul and rock'n'roll. Other projects have seen him perform with a collective called Start to End which performs classic albums-Jeff Buckley's Grace,John Martyn's Solid Air,Fleetwood Mac's Rumours- all of which received rave reviews and Van Morrison's Astral Weeks planned 2019.
