September class booking to be opened soon for our venues.

Prerecorded classes still available:

A "Mini" Jam Class with Erica and Chez

To watch whenever, wherever. With tasks, tricks and downloadable tracks so you can continue the jam away from the screen as well.

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.

Adults

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.

 The Social

Keep calm and order a babycinno

Children

 

We are very relaxed and informal within the classes, but we do encourage:

  • Respect for instruments,

  • Patience,

  • Tidying up,

  • Quiet time,

  • Sharing,

  • Concentration,

  • Being active,

  • Caring for others.

 

Children will often have a really good sleep after music sessions having been mentally and physically stimulated.
