‘We joined Janey’s music class when my youngest daughter was around seven months old.  We both love her weekly sessions, which have given us a little protected time away from busy lives to experience the joy of music together. Janey organises the sessions in such a way that the children quickly become familiar with their format, and my daughter has enjoyed the props and instruments she introduces in some of her songs. We regularly enjoy singing some of the songs we have learnt together when at home, and my eldest daughter has picked them up from us and loves to join in too. Janey’s classes are a wonderful start to music for babies and children alike – we cannot recommend her more highly’B.H.

‘My 2 year old daughter has been going to Maxwell Mini Music sessions since she was 6 months old. She loves singing and the physicality of the sessions. She has learnt lots of songs and sings them all the time at home. She has developed a good sense of beat and she’s developing an understanding of pitch and is singing in tune.

Janey is an expert in early years children’s musical education. She is always enthusiastic and passionate about what she does. She has developed a lovely relationship with my daughter who gets so excited about going every week’. S.M.

‘You are doing such an amazing job and Sophie has learnt so much from the music experience not only in terms of singing and actually making music that includes an every increasing awareness of pitch and rhythm but also in terms of gaining confidence in learning about numbers, words, lyrics and texts in familiar and enjoyable contexts making her a much more independent young girl. She is not even four yet and is already willing to perform to others. Furthermore, your teaching has helped her to develop her social skills and she has learnt how to interact with others ever more meaningfully as they played and performed together in teams. And all this within a totally and huge fun and positive atmosphere.

For me, as her grandma, it was a very special time and I hugely enjoyed seeing her and the others grow, interact and perform with increasing confidence and at the same time enjoying every event hugely’. H.W.

‘My daughter started at Maxwell Mini Music when she was just walking and had a phenomenal time learning to sing with Janey. The groups were extremely upbeat with both fun dances and some instruments too. By the time she started primary school she had developed the beginnings of a musical ear and tone in her singing as well as a real love for the teacher Janey!’ – O.K.

‘We started attending Maxwell Mini Music when my daughter Alice was three months old. Of all the baby/toddler groups we’ve attended this was by far our favourite.  We’ve learned so many songs that we sing every day.  Every time we pass St. George’s Church Alice points and wants to go in to sing with Janey. I would highly recommend Maxwell Mini Music to anyone with a new baby or toddler’. – Steph

‘We joined Maxwell Mini Music when Isabel was nine months old. When she was very little she just listened to the music and she enjoyed the bouncing, cuddling and shaking the bells. Now almost a year on she has started trying to sing the songs herself, doing the actions herself and even bouncing her doll on her knee. It’s great to see her grow with the sessions . Thank you so much Janey!’ – Teresa

‘Janey just to say a huge thank you for your amazing classes,  I have been a registered childminder for over 30 years with 3 outstanding grades behind me and I have attended a variety of music groups and classes during that time.

Yours has outshone the rest and the children have benefited greatly singing songs that really compliment and meet most if not all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum .

The songs and activities all have a purpose and help the children in an age appropriate manner to learn and have fun at the same time and are a far cry from nursery rhyme singing and banging the odd drum or tambourine.

Whenever I ask them if they want to go to music with Janey the answer is a resounding YES and they quickly look for their coats.

I cannot speak highly enough of the classes you provide and the benefits it offers the children in both learning and social skills.  Thank you once again.’ – Deirdre

‘We started going to Maxwell Mini Music when my daughter was 3 months old and continued until she was 9 months and I returned to work. We learned games and songs we still sing a year later & will continue to use as she grows. The group encouraged me to sing for my daughter every day as part of our routine. My daughter showed she loved being sung to from the start and found the music soothing or joyful. We now sing, play & move all the time, fostering her love of music. She starting to join in with song actions like clapping at around 1 year and to sing along at 20 months, forming words of loved songs. The group activities gave me the skills to share music with my baby and remove my embarrassment at being ‘not good’ at singing in public.’ – Linda

‘Katy has been attending Maxwell Mini Music since she was only a few months old. She is now one and a half and absolutely loves her Monday morning fun. She enjoys the interaction with the other children, has made friends, learnt to share and to tidy up. Singing the familiar songs with Katy can help calm her when she is in a mood. She has learnt a lot through the music sessions and absolutely loves them (as do I and her Grandma!)’ – Elly
