    I talk a lot in class and in the blog about how music is such a great tool developmentally and how singing together with your child is such a great bonding tool but let's not forget it is also very useful for, shall we say, those moments when your child is demonstrating what a strong personality they have, how they have the potential to lead the free world, ie those moments when a tantrum might be brewing or when they really decide nap time is not going to happen.  Here are some of my favourite uses of music in day to day parenting life - and yes, all tried and tested on my boys!

  2. Why Adults love their jellybeans time too

    One of my favourite things about being Chief bean (apart from the obvious, I get to hold the jellybean!) is seeing the happiness and enjoyment on the adults faces as well as the babies and children.  It's very important to me that you enjoy yourself in class which is why as a business, I take such great care with my music choices and aim to always have a relaxed, friendly class style.  These classes build communities, tribes, clans, call it what you will, of people with shared experiences and that is a wonderful thing.  Over the last 10 years, I have watched so many friendships start and blossom in class and in this ever changing world,  it is now possibly never been more important to connect in the 'real world'
