Singamajigs Friends

 

Why do we spend our time coming to sing with our children once a week? Is it a time to be together with your child, a time to share music together, a time in the week to meet new friends with similar aged children, a time to …..well I hope it’s for all these reasons but much more…

Harrogate international Youth Festival took place this Easter weekend. Young people from across the Harrogate area and young people from many different countries joined together to share their music in many different concerts. Speaking to each other may have been a little tricky but music is something that crosses many boundaries…..

The Festival reminded me that all of those children, who took part, started their development and introduction to music possibly in the same place that many of our own Singamajigs families are, within their own families, parents or Grandparents, singing or playing….

We hope what we do at Singamajigs encourages you as parents to share music and singing within your own family. Singamajigs was seven a couple of weeks ago and we are already hearing lovely stories of children who are growing in their love for music. Learning to play instruments, singing in youth choirs….

The blocks of learning we build at 2, 3 and 4 years are a positive step forward in the years ahead. The Singamajigs programme of learning we believe gives many positives…

Attending a weekly session enables you to show toddlers that music is part of the natural rhythm of life. Sessions are not just a time to entertain your toddler but a smooth start to learning. Within the session many early concepts of social skills, communication skills and participating within a bigger group are achieved. Within the busy and lively session children are encouraged to participate both vocally and in movement and help a little with the tidying up too…a skill I’m sure many of us would appreciate in the coming years…..

Who would have guessed within all of the singing, music, parachute games and bubble fun….all of this could be happening…

This term in Harrogate we have embraced all the senses as we have danced with ribbons, made circles in the air and twirled and danced with our child to the Blue Daube……Singamajigs sessions aren’t just for once a week, they include rhymes and games that can be shared  at home.

So maybe we can’t see at the moment where your child might be when they are 16 or 17…but Singamajigs is helping to build a love for music for this next generation….inspiring children’s confidence and development…where will your child be….
