Summer 2014

Current classes
Monday 4-5 – Laugh & Learn for 3-4yrs FULL
Tuesday 10-11 – Wiggle & Grow for walkers – 3yrs
Wednesday 1.30-2.30 – Laugh & Learn for 3-4yrs
I am gathering interest for a class Friday afternoon for 4-6yrs. Please contact me for more information.
Where do classes take place?
The format will change slightly from 2013 to match my current circumstances and will be small groups of up to 4 children in my home in Wells (near the firestation). This intimate class and home setting makes for a very successful group relationship and enables those who are a little timid in large groups/rooms to feel safe and connected. Plus there’s tea and coffee on tap :)
How much will it cost?
Cost is 5.00/session including Home Materials (all the music plus extension activities and games for use at home) payable every 4 weeks.
Contact me for more information and to arrange a taster class.

Turtle Tots

I had my first session with Turtle Tots today at a glorious new facility in Cheddar. The little ones absolutely adored it, and so did I. As a swimmer and former lifeguard I can say that it is absolutely the kind of introduction to water I want my children to have. Joyous, practical and confidence boosting. We can’t wait for the next installment.

For more information contact Turtle Tots – Specialist baby and toddler swimming with Turtle Tots, now in Cheddar!  www.turtletots.com or email joandnic@turtletots.com

Why music?

Why music? An inspiring story

I met the most amazing woman in the park yesterday. When she found out I teach Kindermusik she started to tell me about her sons, her life with them and their lives with music. It was a huge testament to the power of music within a family, a person and a community and touched so many Kindermusik themes I had to share…

One of her sons had difficulties at school and at one point was labeled ‘educationally subnormal’. He found his relief and self esteem playing piano in assemblies at school. He is now a PhD scientist.

Another still plays in a band with someone he played with when he was 4. He is now in his twenties. Music is his place to bond and play.

She has another son who is a neuroscientist. He believes whole heartedly that every child should be engaged in some sort of music making. In her words, “He says we are only just beginning to gauge the positive benefits music has on the brain – it does something different. Every one should make music regardless of whether they are a ‘musician’ or not.”

We both stood with tears in our eyes as she told me about the enrichment music had brought to their lives. She still wells up remembering the three of them playing music together for the family at Christmas.

Why music? That’s why.

There is one space left for Wiggle and Grow for walkers – 3yrs 10am Fridays at Wells Cricket Club, South Horrington.

Babies to walking is at 9am and is just starting out. Come and join us!

What people are saying

“What a great load of songs we now have to dance about to! I have made a little music corner for T. with her music player, some shakers and some ribbons to wave about. She loves it!”
“We really enjoyed the session on Friday, I was so pleased that she warmed up so quickly, particularly as she’d just woken up – it often takes her an hour (or more, sometimes) to get up to full speed again! We’re looking forward to more fun on Friday!”
“I played some Kindermusik this week just before bedtime and it worked a treat – He calmed right down even though we hadn’t heard the song for ages.”
Just some of the great experiences from our Wiggle and Grow class parents. Come and see what Kindermusik can bring for you and your little ones! Contact me for more information and to register.
