With the help of our cheery mascot doll ‘Jo’ our specially trained and experienced class teachers run the most popular and established music and movement classes across the UK, Ireland and now Australia!
Jo is the colourful, friendly character that actively participates in all of our classes. From his initial welcome, to his infectious waving and enthusiastic cuddles, Jo sings, dances and has a great imagination! It’s not uncommon to find him pretending to be a train driver, a monkey or even a teapot during class!
He likes playing hide and seek with his friends, while at other times he simply falls asleep and needs some help to wake up again! Sometimes Jo is shy and needs encouragement too, but he always makes time for hugs when it is time to wave goodbye!
But the learning experience goes further than that! Every child will get some hands-on fun with at least two percussion instruments each week including
Watch as they join in with Little Jo who brings special surprises in his bag each week and is always ready to move to the music with fun actions – and with over 1,000 songs under his belt, from old favourites to the more unique, you can rest assured every class is different from one week to the next!
We offer different classes for different age groups, which gradually enable children to be more independent and to use greater levels of skill.
Jo Jingles classes also welcome children with special needs and our class teachers will work with you to discuss individual requirements.
