‘Jiggety-Jig’ – Music Class (2-3yrs)
19th August 2021 @ 09:45 - 10:15
An event every week that begins at 09:45 on Thursday, repeating until 8th December 2022
About the class:
Monkey Music are award-winning music classes for little ones.
Jiggety-Jig is our fun and confidence-building Stage 3 class for 2 and 3 year olds where we develop a strong musical foundation. Movement and exploration take on more significance in our little ones’ play and learning and they sing, dance and move with their friends, harnessing their sense of rhythm and inspiring them 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 early speech development. Pretending is an important new area of learning as they explore and express their ideas amongst our fun half-termly topics, whilst social skills such as sharing and listening lead to greater independence and tons of fun with their friends – I really love to see our Jiggety-Jiggers grow in self-confidence and build relationships with each other in class!
Then, of course, it’s time to play! New and exciting instruments provide wonderful opportunities to develop musical and fine motor skills, whilst enabling our little ones to make choices and show their preferences. Playing their instruments helps to instil a certain amount of self-awareness as they learn to respond to instructions and to concentrate a little more. Every child always has their own individual set of professional instruments (and we use real instruments, not toys!) and all instruments and props are cleaned carefully and thoroughly between classes (and quarantined where necessary) so that you can rest assured that your child is safe to explore them.
Come and have fun with us in your free first class – I can’t wait to meet you!
