Hi! I’m Dorothy Mallon

Welcome to my Jo Jingles classes in Bearsden, Bishopbriggs, Milngavie, Lenzie, Renfrew, Partick, Scotstoun, Dumbarton, Clydebank, Stepps, Bridgeton, Parkhead, Ruchazie and Easterhouse.

I'm Dorothy and I am delighted to be taking over the Jo Jingles Glasgow North area.  This is a dream job for me as I studied a BA in Community Arts specialising in Music and Dance and also went on to Theatre School and became a qualified dance teacher.  So I now get to indulge in my love of dance and music every day!  I have been jingling with my son Fionn for the last 2 years, so as soon as the opportunity arose to become part of the the Jo Jingles Network it seemed like the perfect job for me.


Jo Jingles offers fun, interactive music, singing and movement classes for preschool children…

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!

Lasting 30 to 45 minutes, our structured and interactive music and movement classes offer a fantastic educational activity for children from three months to five years of age.

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.

  • Meet Karen Mclaren

    I'm Karen and I have been part of this amazing Jo Jingles team since 2015. I have three wonderful children, Dylan, Amy & Katie. I've brought all my children to Jo Jingles since they were babies so I slotted in perfectly to my teaching role since I had been coming along for almost nine years!

  • Meet Linzi Glen

    I'm Linzi and I have been a Jo Jingles class leader since 2013. I love to sing and dance  and even go to dance classes in my spare time so this is the perfect role for me. When I'm not  Jingling or dancing, I am kept busy by my three beautiful children, Lilly, Holly & Alfie.

If you’re looking for somewhere to take your child Jo Jingles could be the ideal club to join…The classes seem to install confidence in the children to perform by themselves as well as to participate in group activities. However classes are not purely music orientated, they have an educational slant too….Classes are small which keeps the environment informal and friendly, and each session is well structured, moving it along at a fairly swift pace. The enthusiasm of the teacher quickly rubs off on the children and most seem eager to join in.

Jo Jingles has been a life saver and really brightened up our Tuesday mornings.

Jo Jingles has been a life saver and really brightened up our Tuesday mornings. We have attended for over a year and been to classes for two different age groups. My daughter loves the songs (we even play them in the car) and the classes are great - really interactive, fun and educational with different themes each week. I like the fact the class size is small and you get to know the other parents, and that the structure changes according to the children's ages to keep it interesting and help them to learn. Val is great with the children, and keeps the classes small so they feel very personal. It is great to see them all playing instruments from a young age - getting to know the words and actions for the songs, and really smiling at all their favourites.
I would really recommend Jo Jingles to anyone. I have been to a few music classes, and found some were just too large and the shyer or younger children were pushed to the back. Louisa has grown in confidence and loves to sing and dance - she is even developing some rhythm aged just 2 - thank you Jo Jingles!
