Little Voices Music offers small group classes for children aged 3 months to 3 years, based on the Kodaly approach to Early Childhood Music Education.
Classes are welcoming, engaging, interactive and fun for children and adults alike. Musical concepts are taught through songs and rhymes, both traditional and new, with the use of puppets, props, stories and percussion instruments for added enjoyment.
We love the seesaw

Testimonials

“As a professional classical musician, I really wanted my son to have a playful but effective introduction to music education. For the last two years we have attended Jane’s wonderful classes and they have been a highlight of our week. I knew that the Kodaly approach provides an excellent framework for early-childhood music learning, but it has been inspiring to see Matthew introduced to musical concepts such as pitch, tempo, dynamics, and even pre-reading of notation, without him even realising. Teaching music to this age range is a truly specialist task, and my musical experience has given me a real appreciation of Jane’s teaching expertise, her creativity and her boundless enthusiasm. I am so glad we found these classes- they are the perfect way to begin joyous, life-long music making.” -Penelope Cashman                                             www.penelopecashman.com

"For the last three months I have had the privilege of attending Little Voices music lessons with my daughter and granddaughter. Jane’s classes are truly inspirational. Each lesson follows a familiar structure which the children get to know and anticipate and every song or activity is imaginatively supported by a variety of props, toys, books and instruments. Musical concepts are experienced unconsciously by the children, providing them with a firm foundation for future learning in music. As a Kodaly trained early years music specialist myself, I kept thinking “Why didn’t I think of doing it like that?” Thank you Jane for a wonderful experience." -Penny Middleton                                                                  British Kodaly Academy life member, Certificate of Kodaly Music Education, British Kodaly Academy Advanced Diploma In Musicianship, Former tutor on British Kodaly Academy Music Education courses, Primary Music Specialist, Former Early Years(Mini Maestros) music teacher for Berkshire Maestros, Instrumental Music Teacher for Surrey Arts.
