About

Joey Jig - Music for Real Beginners provides entertaining classes for babies and toddlers, nurturing their development through music.

Joey Jig Music was created in February 2012 by principal Alicia Wolfe.
Alicia now teaches the joys of music to babies and toddlers in Crows Nest, Freshwater, Balmoral and Kirribilli. 
Her musical background spans the last 15years: performing, writing, and producing popular, jazz, musical theatre and childrens music in both Sydney and the U.K.  

Why is music/dancing a good way for children to learn?

Early music training helps develop brain areas involved in language and reasoning. Linking familiar songs to new information can also help imprint information on young minds.
Children learn about their world through the magical process of play.
Providing a rich musical environment can help with a child’s experimentation with sounds and early speech development. Children also find their singing voice and feel the beat through movement finding their rhythm through playing percussion. Dancing also helps with learning spacial awareness and is a wonderful way for babies to express themselves and have fun.

The age appropriate curriculum introduces musical concepts, fun with percussion, drama and dance using games, hand made props and catchy original songs about babies every day life along with traditional songs and nursery rhymes.

Joey Jig classes include fun original themed songs composed by Alicia to engage and entertain both Bubs and Mums. Each term we follow the seasons, learning our animals, colours, numbers, and more. We explore sound through music, discovering tempo, pitch, dynamics and rhythm. Children also gain confidence in the classroom, whilst learning, having fun and using their wonderful imaginations!
