Our classes

Jiggle Jam combines music, movement and story to create an immersive, play-based experience for children 18 months to 5 years old. Each weekly class features a new theme with matching songs, instruments and props. We have both story-based adventures and world music themes. 

Our Kodály inspired sessions feature activities that explore on beat keeping, rhythm and pitch recognition, tempo and solfa singing.

 Original Music 

All of our Jiggle Jam music has been carefully created to support musical learning. Our songs explore tempo and pitch recognition games, rhythm and beat exercises and creative expression.

Live Music and Instruments

We explore different musical instruments each week! Instruments are an exciting, sensory experience and help us learn about beat and rhythm.
 

Singing

Singing games are a fun way to develop aural skills. We use solfa (do, re, mi...) to explore tonality and build confidence with our very own instrument.

Story-based Adventures

Musical learning is an interactive experience in a Jiggle Jam class. We use puppets and props to spark imagination and creative expression. A new adventure awaits us each week!

Caregiver participation

We want your child to get the most out of our sessions. We encourage parents and caregivers to join in with our musical play - it's a beautiful bonding moment for you and your little love.

Modelling the movements and singing the songs will help your child's confidence and will assist in the development of their joint attention.

Developing Beat and Rhythm

We introduce the Kodály method of counting rhythm; a name is given to each beat. We explore beat-keeping with body percussion and instruments.

Basic Pitch Recognition

Basic pitch recognition activities to explore high and low sounds. 

Finding our Voice

We explore tonality using solfa (do, re, mi) singing activities. We use our body (with some caregiver assistance) to mark the notes in the scale and develop familiarity with the progression.

Movement

Developmentally appropriate movement and dance is incorporated into each activity.
