Jackdaws are running a series of fun and educational music classes for babies and toddlers, using singing games, movement and rhymes to inspire a lifelong love of music.
Our simple songs, singing games and rhymes will introduce musical concepts like tempo, dynamics, rhythm and pitch, giving parents and carers ways to connect, encourage creativity and musically play with their under 5s.
Starting after Easter, sessions run weekly at Jackdaws in Great Elm from Monday 20th April, 10-11am with cafe on site and free parking. In our beautiful setting at Jackdaws’ beautiful Lehane Wishart garden studio overlooking the Rose Garden with a large outside area to play and learn in, we’ll feel close to nature as we sing and dance together, led by Eliza Wylie.
The Jackdaws cafe will also be open for tea, coffee and cake.
Eliza has been teaching music and dance to people of all ages since 2002. Her groups use a mixture of unaccompanied songs and rhymes, some of which will be familiar, and some will be new. As well as using our voices we also do a lot of moving; wiggling, swishing through the air, bouncing and clapping so children and parents quickly understand how to listen for and move to the beat. Our aim is for our children to start singing, continue singing, and never to develop a complex about not being able to sing.
We use no backing tracks, and songs are easy to learn and sing; simple enough for toddlers to take home and become part of their play and musical learning.
Sessions are £6 drop in, or £45 for the series of 9 (£5 per session – a saving of 17%). For more information and online book visit The Eggs Music Page
