Hi! I’m Julia Dryland - Welcome to my Jo Jingles Classes in Epsom, Stoneleigh, Worcester Park & Chessington.


After teaching Reception and Year 1 for many years at two lovely local schools here in Epsom, I decided to take the plunge and become a Jo Jingles Franchisee in 2019!

Hi! I’m Julia Dryland - Welcome to my Jo Jingles Classes in Epsom, Stoneleigh, Worcester Park & Chessington.


After teaching Reception and Year 1 for many years at two lovely local schools here in Epsom, I decided to take the plunge and become a Jo Jingles Franchisee in 2019! As a busy mum and step-mum, I love the fact that I can work flexibly but still have the pleasure of teaching young children on a daily basis.
Along with my class teacher, Michelle, I am so excited to be offering classes in our local area which, I believe, is the perfect place for families with little ones! I made full use of the many baby groups, classes and cafés when on maternity leave back in 2014 and look forward to sharing tips and recommendations with other local mums before and after classes.
I am so pleased to be joining Jo Jingles as it is such a well-respected and established programme, with a long history of providing music and movement experiences for children. Through my experiences in teaching, I am also aware just how much the classes will prepare little ones for their onward journey towards nursery, preschool or school. Jo Jingles not only gives children a great foundation in music but touches on almost every other area of the Early Years Curriculum as well. I am, however, yet to meet a child who is concerned with ticking off every area of the Early Years Curriculum! From their point of view, they get to have 45 minutes of quality time with their grown up, singing, dancing, playing instruments and learning new songs each week – not to mention getting a cuddle or high-five from their pal Jo Jingles!
Please use the contact details on this site to get in touch – I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

    My career started out as a secondary school teacher before having my son Owen. I am currently in a Rock Choir and have also sung in choirs and bands during my teaching career. My son and I have thoroughly enjoyed our Jo Jingles classes and as a new mother it has been a lifeline knowing that there is a weekly event where someone takes the lead and guides you and your child through fun songs and activities that are helping him develop and have fun.

    I have always enjoyed singing and loved being in a classroom teaching students and helping them to achieve. Becoming a Jo Jingles teacher is a perfect way to using my skills as a teacher and my enjoyment of music for the good of others. 

WHAT YOU’VE BEEN SAYING

Anna started Jo jingles when she was 3 months and has loved it ever since. Over 2 months later, she gets excited when she hears the first song as she knows what's about to happen, and often falls into a nice early afternoon nap after the class has finished. Great balance of songs, interaction and relaxation.

We've been going to Jo Jingles for 8 months now and it's easily Matthew's favourite activity in the week. Lots of singing and songs with actions, playing different instruments and a relaxed chillout with bubbles. He gets really excited when Jo comes round to see how we are all doing. Looking forward to many more years of fun music with Jo and Viv.

I have been taking my daughter to Jo Jingles ever since she was about 4 months old and she is now 2 and has loved every minute of it! She loves music and it has not only developed her musical skills, though also her listening skills, hand eye coordination and confidence in a group of kids. See you soon Jo - beep beep!

I've been taking my 8 month old son to Jo Jingles for the last 5 months and it's honestly the highlight of his week! He loves the songs and musical instruments which are different each week. He has started to recognise the songs and grins from ear to ear when his favourites come on. He gets so excited when Jo comes round he almost takes off - flapping his arms and legs around! Viv is a very friendly and enthusiastic teacher. I can highly recommend this class to all parents who are looking for something different from the average baby group and something far more personal!

Jo Jingles was recommended to me by my sister, who took all 3 of her children. We love it and Viv is fantastic.

Jo Jingles was recommended to me by my sister, who took all 3 of her children. We love it and Viv is fantastic. Thomas is a little cheeky monkey and going to the classes every week has really helped him to start to listen and follow instructions and most importantly have fun with music and other children. Now he is 2 he can join in so much more and if so rewarding watching him sing the words to songs and follow the actions. The classes are fun and friendly. The bubbles are a definite favourite and I think one of Thomas' first words Thank you Viv and Jo :-)

I have been taking my baby, Holly, to Jo Jingles in Epsom for over three months now and it is the highlight of our week :-) Holly loves Jo and is in awe of him and gets very excited.
The songs are very catchy and memorable and I like the variety of instruments used too. The sessions are broken up nicely into sections - some music, some singing and some more relaxed activities - which is great for keeping the babies both entertained and chilled out.
Viv seems naturally musical and is very happy and friendly with the babies. I would highly recommend this to any mum as a regular and very enjoyable baby group.

My daughter Amelia loves Jo Jingles! She has been attending from being a baby and I have seen a her ability to join in with group sessions, concentrate, watch and copy others, dance, play musical instruments and socialise with other toddlers grow month by month. She enjoys the variety of action songs, instruments, magical bubbles, peek a boo and other movement games which all capture and keep her attention. The songs have increased her knowledge too with songs naming body parts and counting. The Jo Jingles sessions are fun and engaging, everyone is welcomed and there is a friendly atmosphere. Amelia is very fond of both Viv and the Jo Jingles puppet!

If you are looking for a great activity for mum and baby/toddler
This is a MUST!

Viv is fantastic! I started taking my first daughter Rebecca when she was 6 months - she loved her Jo Jingles classes and was very sad when school meant she had to give up at 4yrs. My youngest, Jessica loves her class as much as her sister did. She gets so excited when I say "shall we go to music". We love our weekly classes - thanks Viv!

I have been taking my son Grant to JJ's in Epsom for about 2yrs now and he really does love the whole experience. The class is divided into various action songs for his age group, experimenting with various instruments every week and other various term time songs and learning activities. He has made great friends from his class and so has Mum ;-) we will continue with his appropriate age group class until his starts school. His teacher Viv is really welcoming, very friendly, enthusiastic, great with the kids & always trying new and tried techniques. A lovely way to spend a Tues morning with my son and getting him used to the rhythm, rhyme and enjoyment of music.
