Maxwell Mini Music provides independent, fun and educational music classes for children aged from birth to school starters. All classes have a clear structure, one which the children and adults will become familiar with over time.
In the early years, the most influential teachers are a child’s parents and primary caregivers. Maxwell Mini Music aims to empower these adults with the means and confidence to make music both within classes, but more importantly, throughout the week. By encouraging communicative musicality, young children and those closest to them, can engage in conversations without words. Parents and carers are encouraged to participate in all classes as this enriches the children’s experience and they become more involved and engaged. Music has the potential to assist in a child’s development, but every child should also have the opportunity to experience the joy in making music with those they love. Janey is keen to join you and your little ones on this important early musical journey with.
Janey is an Early Years tutor with the British Kodály Academy and is currently studying an MA in Early Years Education (Music) at the Centre for Research in Early Childhood at Birmingham City University. Janey’s classes are inspired by the music education philosophy of Zoltán Kodály and also incorporate new research relating to early years music and development.
