Our daughter has been attending classes at Hush Little Baby weekly since she was 4 months old. She is now 3.5 years. We have been so happy with Jen and the Hush Little Baby team! We have trialled a few other ‘baby music’ classes and love the flow of these classes and the fact that Jen uses only her voice in the classes as other classes have the volume way too loud for young, developing ears with amplified music and loud instruments. We would highly recommend trialling a lesson with Hush Little Baby (and we know our daughter would too!)
My baby and I have really enjoyed these classes and can’t wait for Term 2 to begin. Jen has some wonderful and simple ideas for sharing singing, music and storytelling with your baby which are fun, easy and developmentally beneficial. The classes came along just at the right time for me when I was beginning to feel a bit at a loss for what to do with my baby during her lengthening awake times.
Hush Little Baby has been a wonderful experience for Georgia and myself. At 18 months she LOVES music but is also super active so Jen’s combination of music, movement and instruments has been perfect. Jen has a vast knowledge of all things voice and song related, and I have also loved learning some new songs to share with my young children, and the take home words for some of them! We have so enjoyed our music classes!
My little girl has just “graduated” from Hush Little Baby music classes because she is starting kindy. After taking her weekly to the classes from the age of 6 months both she and I will miss it so much! She is 3.5 years old now, and Jen managed to change the content of the classes as she grew older to keep her interested at the right level for her. It prepared her so well for kindy, learning how to be in a group setting, listen to a teacher etc. It also gave us a great bonding activity to look forward to every Monday morning. And quite a few of the mums I met at the classes have become lifelong friends. I cannot recommend these baby music classes / toddler music classes enough!
Jen is an amazing and wonderful music teacher. She is engaging and passionate and cares about her students and their parents. She has a great patience with and understanding of young children. Jen has an amazing depth of knowledge of music, and how children perceive it, understand it and learn through it. I have been bringing my daughter since she was six months old and have just started bringing my second child to the baby classes. We absolutely love Hush Little Baby Music classes.
I am on the go all the time looking after my oldest child. So to stop and make a special time for a music class just with my baby girl has been beautiful for both of us. And it’s definitely inspired me to sing and dance with her at home all the time. Jen, you are SO good at what you do. Mondays are the highlight of our week, thanks to your baby classes!
Childcare Centre Program
All of the children at Chatterbox (childcare) just can’t get enough of Hush Little Baby music classes… Their little eyes light up with excitement and joy ready for their class… The music teachers engage the children into a world of learning through song. I believe that Hush Little Baby is a wonderful program at our centre, which all the children benefit from greatly.
I’ve noticed her diction and intonation is really improving when she sings the songs taught in class.
My daughter is in the nursery and she loves the music lessons. Whenever I sing the songs to her at home, she claps, which I think she picked up in music class.
[My child] has finally started singing at home. I have been going to music classes with him for over a year now and never got him to sing, but his Hush Little Baby music teacher did it! I am very pleased!
I think it’s great that we get the songs they learn via email in the daily round up, so we can keep up with our kids.
[My child] was initially very shy during music, but is now very confident singing and doing the actions too. He gets us all involved at home to sing with him.
