If you’ve ever looked at your child and marvelled at how quickly they’ve grown, how much they’ve learned and how curious they are, then you understand why two is the perfect age to introduce your little one to the world of music in a way that will keep them engaged, encourage their sense of wonder and expression, and set them up for a lifelong journey with music. Our Jitterbugs class for 2- year olds is the perfect way to open your little one’s ears and develop their voice, and it’s so much fun they won’t want to leave!
Jitterbugs features a wide array of engaging, exciting and enjoyable activities for your young musician. Whether they’re roaring like lions, beating a drum or dancing through the colours of the rainbow, your child will love the opportunity to sing, dance, perform, and explore the world of sound and music. Watch their confidence blossom and their love for music awaken as they teach you the actions to their favourite songs, and with a take-home CD of all the original music used in the Jitterbugs classroom, you can be sure you’ll be hearing our unique Jitterbugs music over and over again!
However, while our Jitterbugs classes might look like fun and games, it is underpinned by a solid educational philosophy and delivered by trained and highly experienced musicians and educators. As your Jitterbug sings, dances, plays and performs, they are gaining a strong foundation in musical skills like active listening, rhythm and beat, loud vs. soft, and high vs. low; as well as developing non-musical understandings, such as sharing and communicating, and motor skills. As the first step in the International School of Music curriculum for childhood music education, Jitterbugs introduces important skills to set up success both in and out of music as your child grows and develops.
Jitterbugs is the perfect introduction to the world of music for your child. Plus, with so many enjoyable and accessible activities, Jitterbugs is the perfect experience for parents, grandparents or carers to share with their little one!
What does a class look like?
You and your Jitterbug will always be warmly welcomed by your class teacher, and each class starts by shouting “a big hello” in the Jitterbugs Song Then, the class weaves through an exciting musical journey. Each week is based on a different theme, for example lion week, red week or balloons week. You will sing lots of songs, mostly from the Jitterbugs unique collection of original songs written specifically for this course and based on the weekly themes. There are also plenty of dances to learn – we usually find your little one will be able to teach you the actions after a few weeks! Playing percussion is always a big highlight, and we have a wide variety of instruments for your child to master, played to a variety of preschool songs and classical music which introduce your child to new sounds and ways of listening. Each Jitterbug gets a gorgeous Jitterbugs book, filled with fun stories and weekly craft for you to share with your little one. At the end of each class your child will get a sticker in their book, and everybody sings the Jitterbugs ‘Goodbye Song’. Then it’s time to go home, which is harder than it sounds – with so many exciting activities packed into half an hour, our Jitterbugs usually don’t want to leave!
