Hi! I’m Carol Banks

Welcome to my Jo Jingles classes in Redcar and Middlesbrough

Hi, my name is Carol Banks and I'm thrilled to be running classes in the Redcar and Middlesbrough areas.  I have always had a keen interest in music - I play the trumpet and have performed in many local brass and wind bands from since I was 8 years old.  I have previously worked with pre-school children as an au-pair in New Jersey, USA and as a nanny in the UK.  I now have 2 young children of my own and have seen their confidence and social skills flourish as a result of taking them to music classes.  When the opportunity arose to introduce...

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.

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!
