MiniJam - Sounds tasty, what should I expect...?
0-5 years music classes and concerts
1. Music and Sensory classes
Fun and modern early-years education through music. MiniJam is as much about the coffees and natter before/after class as it is about the interactive music and sensory experience for the babies and children. We have pooled some of London’s top session musicians to create funky versions of nursery rhymes to jam along to. We have also teamed up with psychologist Dr Gabby Bray DPsych, CPsychol, B.A.(Hons) (Oxon) in order to structure our termly programme to best benefit your little one.
2. We also do child-friendly concerts/gigs
You can chat, you can feed, you can change nappies, you can leave half way through. No judgment or protocol here - just really varied music to listen to whilst your little one takes in new genres of music from gypsy jazz to Ibiza chillout.

Who is MiniJam?
The Birth of MiniJam;
Mini jam is the brainchild of Chez Taylor and Erica Guy. We have been living and working in London as session musicians, teachers and close friends for over a decade. Leading up to and following the birth of Erica's first child as well as drawing on Chez’'s experience in early years music and sensory classes we decided to create fun and relaxed music sessions that would support parents/guardians/carers, as well as starting to develop young minds. We also hope to encourage confidence in music making for all.
Suffering from stranger danger? Get to know us.
The supportive nature of our sessions will be a chance to quiz other parents/carers or just generally have a whinge about how much sleep you are or are not getting. There have been a number of studies on the improved mental state of mothers with social support. This also extends to fathers/guardians and carers - a problem shared is a problem halved and all the other cliches.
MiniJam is founded with NCT style support in mind.
Keep calm and order a babycinno
We are very relaxed and informal within the classes, but we do encourage:
Respect for instruments,
Caring for others.
Children will often have a really good sleep after music sessions having been mentally and physically stimulated.

We’d make fireman Sam proud!
At MiniJam, our music team
wholeheartedly encourage children to listen, touch and play with the instruments and props used in our sessions as an important part of their early development.
We kindly request that adults supervise and participate in our classes to ensure equipment is being used safely.
