Early Years - Treble Time

Music-making for 0 - 5-year-olds and their grownups.

I am the founder of Treble Time, delivering music for babies to pre-schoolers and their adults in local venues.
Treble Time is an interactive music class for babies to 5-year-olds and their grownups, where educational and physical development is cloaked in fun, laughter and singing.
At Treble Time, we believe that music and singing together is an essential activity in supporting the social and emotional development of babies and young children and strengthening the bonds between adults and children.
Sessions include lots of singing, puppets and toys, dancing, instrument play with percussion instruments, creative play with scarves, ribbon rings, lycra, scrunchies and various other props to engage and inspire imagination. 
I deliver family group sessions in the West of Newcastle and can also work one-to-one, in your home, with children with learning disabilities.

The Science Behind Why Singing Is Good For Your Little Ones

Bonding & Emotional Development

BONDING & EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT - 'Motherese'/Infant-Directed Speech (IDS), it is when we talk to our babies in a sing-song voice, exaggerating how we talk and making it easier for babies to break into language.
Singing helps to strengthen speech development further and enhances feelings of closeness and emotional regulation
Babies brains react to our voices when still in the womb, so it is never too early to start music classes with them, where you can play and sing together, support their development and make new friends.


Brain Development

BRAIN DEVELOPMENT - Singing with children helps them develop listening and language skills as well as learning about the world around them. You can use songs to help them regulate their emotions, learn new tasks and in developing routines.

Physical Development

PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT - Singing with family and friends helps a child develop fine and gross motor skills. They will learn how to use their tongue and facial muscles to make words, move their bodies through jumping and spinning and playing peed-a-boo, and how to move and manipulate their fingers and toes for small movement tasks such as using cutlery, pencils and fastening buttons.
