About Joey Jig Music
Joey Jig Music
Joey Jig music is an Australian created and owned school providing music and movement classes for babies and toddlers from 3months - 4 years. Classes include fun original themed songs composed by owner teacher 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!
Why is music and 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 Music was created in February 2012 by principal Alicia Wolfe.
Alicia now teaches the joys of music to babies and toddlers in Mosman, Crows Nest, Freshwater, and Kirribilli.
Her musical background spans the last 20 years: performing, writing, and producing popular, jazz, musical theatre and children's music in both Sydney and the U.K.
