As an early childhood professional, Jill plans her own child music lessons taking into account the needs of the children in the group.  The program is based on the Kodaly method as found in the Do-re-mi Music for Children program unique to the Kodaly Music Education Institute of Australia (KMEIA) of which Jill has been a member for many years.  Jill also uses Dalcroze principles in her program.

What do we do at jillsMusic?

The children experience music through a variety of songs and rhymes suitable to their age.
The music experience is complemented by a variety of percussion instruments that takes into account the children's developing abilities.
A wide variety of colourful resources, for example puppets, scarves, a feltboard, and balls recognize children’s different learning styles and ways of musical expression, and enhance the music experience.

How does the class work?

Carers and their children participate together in the music class.  This enables the adult to learn the songs, rhymes and games so that the music experience then becomes part of the child’s everyday life. 

Where there is more than one child from the family in the group, it is beneficial to have another adult attend the group, particularly for toddlers (1-2 years).

How do the age groups differ?

Babies and Toddlers
Jill leads the group through music experiences which are one on one and emphasise the carer’s role as the child’s most important teacher.

Twos and Preschoolers
The child music activities gradually become more challenging as the children become older.  The activities promote the child’s developing independence, by encouraging individual participation whilst playing and singing in fun games.  It is best for this process to occur naturally as children feel comfortable and when they are ready.

Children over 2 years collect pictures that relate to the songs and rhymes learnt during the class, and can be referred to at home.  These are very popular with the children, and some children keep these books for some years.

“I really enjoy the connections that develop through the shared music experience over the long term, between adult-child, child-child and child-teacher. 

The journey to independence is a fascinating process as children find their own voice.” ~Jill

Testimonials

"My two children have participated in the Macquarie University Early Childhood Music Program for 2 - 5 year olds under the expert teaching and guidance of Jill. Jill's multi-talent abilities of singing, playing a variety of instruments and early childhood education make her a very qualified and valued music teacher. My children have flourished under her auspices and really enjoy music in all forms: singing, dancing and playing instruments. I would recommend any child to participate in one of Jill's classes learning rhythm, pitch etc in an environment full of fun and creativity."
