Welcome to Maxwell Mini Music

The classes are designed and led by Janey, a mother, musician, music graduate and qualified teacher. Maxwell Mini Music provides a nurturing, caring environment for babies and young children to enjoy their earliest educational experiences.  Lessons are inspired by Zoltan Kodály’s philosophy of music education.  In 2019 I studied British Kodály Academy’s Certificate of Professional Practice in the Kodály Concept of Music Education for Early Years and was awarded a Distinction. In the Spring of 2020 I joined the British Kodály Academy’s study trip to Hungary to improve my understanding of the Kodály philosophy of music education in Early Years settings. In September 2020 I embarked upon the wonderful three years Masters in Early Childhood Music Education with the Centre for Research in Early Childhood (CREC). In January 2021 I became an Early Years tutor with the British Kodály Academy. In June 2021, Maxwell Mini Music became a part of the Bromley Music Hub (BMH) partnership, run by Bromley Youth Music Trust (BYMT). From July 2021, classes move from Beckenham to their new location at BYMT’s home in Bromley. Details of these classes can now be found on the ‘Classes’ tab.

Since April 2020, during Covid-19 restrictions, there have been regular blog posts during term time, each containing free musical material for you to share with your little ones. These can be found further down this page.

Listening is vital to every child’s education and I believe music is the perfect medium to start developing these skills. In the right environment, in addition to being a joyful experience, music has the potential to develop confidence in every child.
