Monday Morning Music 7

Hello.

I hope you’ve had a good week and you’re coping with the heat on this glorious Bank Holiday Monday! If only!! Oh well, at least it’s dry!

For today’s video you will again need a scarf for the peekaboo song and older children may want to rock their favourite cuddly toy (or sibling) during the lullaby. Although the majority of today’s songs are shown standing up, some songs can easily be adapted for sitting down if you need to give your arms a rest.

I hope you enjoy today’s video. Any recent photos or comments would be wonderful as they bring extra smiles to my week. The next Monday Morning Music video will be posted next week and I’ll also post on Facebook, Instagram (maxwellminimusic) and Twitter (@maxwell_mini) once it’s on the website.

Have a good week, take care and keep singing.

Max and Jimmy

Spring Term

Maxwell Mini Music runs Kodály inspired, singing based classes, for babies and toddlers. The new term starts on Tuesday morning, 11th January, at the home of Bromley Youth Music Trust. The classes have a limited capacity and some places (including trial places) are still available.

One parent recently said: ‘Maxwell Mini Music for my 2 year old has really helped her to be confident and develop socially and vocally after an unprecedented year.  The music is fun for little ones and parents to practise at home. A great start for little ones into music. Definitely recommend for every parent’.

Season’s Greetings & 2021 review

What a varied year 2021 has been! I started the year teaching EYFS & KS1 children online, and was relieved when I could return to teaching face-to-face in schools in March. At the start of the year I joined the Early Years team with British Kodály Academy and we have continued teaching online throughout the year. It’s been wonderful to work with Kodály enthusiasts from across the globe. Towards the end of the year I also joined the Kodály teaching team at Junior Guildhall. Throughout this time I have been continuing my Early Years Music Education MA studies with CREC in Birmingham, mostly online, but we did have the excitement of meeting in person in October.

The Maxwell Mini Music lockdown videos were well received during 2020 and continuing into the start of the year and I’m delighted that people are still viewing them. In the Autumn I resumed my in-person classes, in our new venue at Bromley Youth Music Trust. This term has been wonderful with music, new friendships and lots of giggles. It has been a delight to get to know the children and families who have joined us for our first term in our new home. Thank you BYMT for making us feel so welcome.

Booking is now open for the Spring Term and a trial class option is available. The link to sign up is: https://maxwellminimusic.class4kids.co.uk

It just remains for me to say have a safe, calm and enjoyable festive season.

Autumn Term fun

The first half of the term was great fun and it was wonderful to meet so many lovely young families.

****

The feedback has been really positive and some families have been kind enough to share their thoughts with me:

‘Maxwell Mini Music for my 2 year old has really helped her to be confident and develop socially and vocally after an unprecedented year.  The music is fun for little ones and parents to practise at home. A great start for little ones into music.  Definitely recommend for every parent’.

‘A great class to be able to bring both my boys (nearly 3 and 13 months) to. They love the songs and actions – especially the peekaboo and tickling songs’.

‘We really enjoyed the classes and learning new songs to sing to the babies. My son really enjoys being sung to so it was great to have dedicated time to do this. Janey is really friendly and kind, and creates a really nice atmosphere in the class’.

Bookings are now open for the next group of 5 sessions, which start on Tuesday 2nd November. Trial classes are available.

Monday Morning Music 46

Hello

I hope you’ve had a good week and you’re ready for some music making.

For today’s video you don’t need any props but your little ones may want to rock and bounce a cuddly toy or sibling during the lullaby and knee-bobbing songs.

I mentioned last week that today’s video is the last regular one for a while as my first classes in my new venue, are starting on Tuesday 6th July.  

Places are still available and bookings can be made on:

https://maxwellminimusic.class4kids.co.uk

I’m hoping that many of you will be able to join me for these classes and we will be able to make music together. In the same room. How exciting!

As these regular videos are drawing to a close, I’d love to receive any photos or comments about how your children have responded to these videos. When I post any new video is on the website, I’ll also post on Instagram (maxwellminimusic), Twitter (@maxwell_mini) and Facebook.

Until we ‘meet’ again, have a fun and keep singing.
