‘Jiggety-jig’: Stage 3 (2-3 yrs)
September 12 @ 10:50 - 11:20
An event every week that begins at 10:50 on Thursday, repeating until 19th December 2019
About the class:
Monkey Music are award-winning music classes for little ones. Jiggety-Jig is our class for 2 and 3 year olds where we sing, dance and move to the music and harness our older toddlers’ sense of rhythm, whilst using engaging props, images, music, stories and poems to inspire our little monkeys to create their own special music. Our little ones learn to notice patterns in music that are the foundation of our early mathematical skills, and our rhythmical songs and activities also greatly encourage our early speech development. Then, of course, it’s time to play! Every child always has their own instrument, with enough of each type to go round, and we use real instruments, not toys. Playing their instruments doesn’t only help our little ones to develop musical and fine-motor skills but also a certain amount of self-awareness as they respond to instructions and learn to concentrate a little more. I really love to see our Jiggety-Jiggers grow in self-confidence and become more independent as they explore and express their ideas, and build relationships with each other. Come and have fun with us in your free first class – I can’t wait to meet you!

“Edward and Eleanor both love Monkey music. Alison is amazing. The music really helps them get a sense of rhythm and I can see how it could help language development.” – Monkey Music mum
“Ali from Monkey music came to do a session at our preschool and had children aged 2-mesmerised! There was plenty to keep them entertained including singing, dancing, musical instruments and parachute games, we would highly recommend her sessions!” – Pre-School Manager
What to wear / bring:
I provide everything you need to enjoy our classes, so just bring yourselves. Wear whatever feels comfortable and allows you to move around freely. We sit together on floor mats during class and we ask everybody to take off their shoes to keep the space nice and clean for the little ones. If you enrol onto regular classes, your child receives a Welcome Pack which includes a lovely t-shirt to wear to class.
Hi, I’m Ali – I’m an ex-Early Years teacher, now teaching the classes I loved the most myself as a mum! I taught in Surrey for 15 years and then started my Monkey Music classes in Summer 2019 after relocating to Somerset.
Monkey Music’s 4-stage curriculum has developed over 25 years and has been written with a sound understanding of how children learn best. Classes are age-specific and in small age-bands, tailor-made to meet the needs of the little ones in each group and support them at each stage of their early development. We begin with Rock’n’Roll from 3 months, then Heigh-Ho from 12 months, Jiggety-Jig for 2-3 years and finally Ding-Dong for 3 and 4 years.
First class is free.
£7 per class, payable termly in advance – bookings can be made online at www.bit.ly/BookFromeClasses
