Re: Music-loving 2.5 year old
Your music loving toddler would love Jeff @
Jingle Jamboree. My toddler and I have been
going to his classes for a year now. Jeff is amazing with the kids. The class is so
much fun. My daughter looks forward to it every week. His website is
www.jinglejamboree.com. A new session begins the week of April 17th. Check the website
for the schedule and pricing.
Re: Music class for 4 year old
Jingle Jamboree Music offers a specific class for four year olds
on Fridays at 11 a.m. The class incorporates singing,
percussion instruments, puppets, props and very fun activities
that are very engaging for children. For more information about
my classes see www.jinglejamboree.com

Has anyone taken the Jingle Jamboree Music class with his/her child? I
looked on the website and didn't see any comments about this particular
program. I'm interested in any feedback one has to offer. Are there
instruments involved? Movement? Interaction? Does the instructor play an
Regarding Jingle Jamboree, my 10 month old is in the class and loves it.
The instructor uses various simple instruments like a flute or tapping wood
sticks and some others. The instructor is very creative with props for each
song and takes the class very seriously. He passes out bells and shakers to
the kids and moms and helps us keep rhythyms and tunes. My son crawls to his
feet at the beginning of the class because he knows he has the "fun stuff" and
is eager to begin. The songs are very simple and catchy enough that we sing
them throughout the week (sometimes I can't get them out of my head
I think it is a good value and my son also now claps when he hears music.
some great moms and babies too. I'd give it a thumbs up.
Jingle Jamboree classes are taught at my son's preschool and he absolutely
loves them. "Jingle Jeff" comes weekly and sings with the children. No
instruments are used. The kids learn fun songs, play musical games and
learn how to sing on-key. I have a hand-out of the program's philosophy
that mentions all the concepts they teach by age, such as keeping a steady
beat, noticing rhythm, volume, etc. I know our school has found that the
kids are more interested in it after age three, with five-year-olds being
the most engaged.
My son has learned to tell the days of the week because he eagerly
anticipates Jeff's visits on Thursdays. He sings many of the songs at home
(they are imaginative and cute) and most of them I have never heard before.
Highly recommended if this is what you're after.
