Hi! I’m Deborah Gilbert

Welcome to my Jo Jingles classes in Plymouth, Plymstock, Saltash, Tavistock, Woolwell, Ivybridge & Plympton

Hi, I'm Deborah Gilbert (on the right) and I run Jo Jingles classes in Plymouth, Ivybridge, Hemerdon, Tavistock & Saltash.

I have had a passion for performing from a very early age and studied Ballet and Tap as a youngster whilst performing in dance shows twice a year. My journey with Jo Jingles began as a parent attending regular classes with my first daughter, Jessica.

Hi, I'm Deborah Gilbert (on the right) and I run Jo Jingles classes in Plymouth, Ivybridge, Hemerdon, Tavistock & Saltash.

I have had a passion for performing from a very early age and studied Ballet and Tap as a youngster whilst performing in dance shows twice a year. My journey with Jo Jingles began as a parent attending regular classes with my first daughter, Jessica. She absolutely loved it and so inspired by the classes I soon became a Class Teacher for Jo Jingles Plymouth. Following the birth of my second daughter, Amelie, I left in 2013 to pursue a new position with the University of Plymouth. However, I couldn't hang up my jingling shoes for long and jumped at the opportunity to purchase the business with my husband’s support in May 2016.

I have a passion for the care and development of pre-school children, and believe each child should have the opportunity to develop from an early age. Jo Jingles provides this opportunity, through a structured approach to music and movement.

He is extremely friendly and actively participates in all of our classes. At the start of each session he welcomes all children with a smile, a wave and a cuddle. Then he might sing or dance or pretend to be a train driver, a monkey or even a teapot.

Sometimes he hides and we have to look for him. Sometimes he falls asleep and he needs some help to wake up. Sometimes he is shy and we have to encourage him to join in with the fun. But he always makes time for plenty of hugs and kisses when it’s time for the children to say goodbye.

    Hi I'm Vicky, and I present classes at Plymstock and Crownhill.  I have a First Class honours degree in Theatre, Drama and Performance and in my final year at Uni I specialised in Early Years Drama. I have three young boys and they keep me and my husband Jon very busy. I have worked for Jo Jingles for 5 years, and absolutely love it.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the sessions - they have taught her more than I ever imagined they would and we are both going to miss them immensely. I have ordered the DVD and some more CD's much to my husbands disappointment, but Poppy will be thrilled that she still gets her Jo fix! Thanks especially for your patience when Poppy has been a little monkey and spent many sessions running around being rather noisy. I hope she wasn't too disruptive - I did feel some weeks that all people could hear was my voice yelling 'Poppy, come here'!
Although she was starting to get a lot better recently I thought?!

With best wishes for you in 2012, and a big thank you for helping my little lady learn some wonderful skills. I recommend the sessions to all my Mum friends, I think they are fab.

I just thought you might like to know that Isaac is absolutely delighted with his bells and maracas.

I just thought you might like to know that Isaac is absolutely delighted with his bells and maracas. We had to go shopping after the session on Wednesday, he played the bells all the way to the shop in the car, all round the shop and all the way home! He then insisted on watching his DVD and played along with bells and maracas to all the songs. We just about managed prise them out of his hands to give him a bath and put him to bed. Today he insisted on taking his maracas to bed for his nap :). He has been running into the kitchen saying "shake, shake, shake".

The instruments have definitely made his week, so thank you for getting them for him.

It's been ages but here we are finally settled in the north of Australia where it is very hot and humid.

It's been ages but here we are finally settled in the north of Australia where it is very hot and humid. Jack is dancing around to Jo Jingles so I thought it a good time to finally email you with the photos I promised. They were taken in December, I can not believe it has been 3 months already. We are finding it challenging settling down in Darwin - there's NO Jo!!! or music classes so the DVD comes out quite often, Jack says "Jo Jingle" now, he has all his instruments and still dances and plays to the songs. Unfortunately it makes me cry every time, we both dance madly around to Wind the Bobbin Up and I usually collapse on the living room floor in tears. I miss the UK and my dear friends so very much!!

I have been meaning to contact you for a while to say thank you so much for the lovely times we had with Jo. Hannah still misses the group and we have to put the Jo Jingles CD on the minute we get into the car! I have been trying to find a way of coming back as Hannah seems to miss it so much and clearly doesn't enjoy the alternative as much, but I am not having a lot of luck at the moment. I have looked at the other days you do but they are rather a trek from Tavi where we are from Dec. Its a shame, but i'll keep looking and maybe we can rejoin when Hannah's sleeping patterns change once more. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know what an impact you had on our little girl and how much she still enjoys singing and dancing with "Jo"

My son Thomas has been going to Jo Jingles classes in Ivybridge since he was seven months old and thoroughly enjoys the sessions. He is rapidly approaching his third birthday and still as enthusiastic.

Claire makes the sessions fun for the children and they love Jo's box - can they guess what is making the noise?
We bought my son a 'little Jo' and he goes everywhere with us. If we ask him what he'd like to do for the day he invariably says 'Jo Jingles'.
Thanks must go to Claire and Jo Jingles for providing such a stimulating activity
