Jazz-Mataz is a fun music, movement and language program designed to help meet the criteria for developmentally appropriate musical and fitness activities specific to Infants, Toddlers and Pre-Schoolers.
Research has shown that music is one of the few activities that uses both sides of the brain – the logical and the creative- at the same time. Together with fitness and movement, our fun filled sessions offer the complete pre-school development package. In addition, Jazz-Mataz helps children to develop their social, interactive and sharing skills through the use of basic musical instruments, singing, dancing and lots of movement. The program can also integrate foreign language into the program, which makes it even more exciting!
Through the sessions the children will learn in a variety of ways:
- To participate in a group
- To share and take turns
- Concentration and listening skill
As a result, they will:
- Increase their confidence
- Improve their language skills
- Be aware of their cultural heritage and musical traditions
- These objectives are achieved whilst having fun in a stimulating and imaginative environment.
Sessions vary according to the needs of the group, but may include:
- Nursery rhymes, songs and dances (English and/or another language)Music and rhythm using simple percussiMusical Games
- Fun Fit routines
Jazz-mataz at Childcare Centres: (Why not book us for a free demo at your Centre?)
A Jazz-Mataz teacher can come each week and deliver the programme at your Centre. We are also available to present one–off sessions. We provide all of the equipment including the instruments, puppets and props that we use in our groups, at a time that suits your Centre’s routine.
The idea isn’t to create perfect performances, but for everybody to join in, experience using musical instruments, sing and act out exciting themed songs and above all have lots of fun. Together with Jazz Bear as its mascot, a fantastic array of musical instruments and excellent energetic fully trained Jazz leaders, we believe that Jazz-Mataz is an absolute must for the development of any pre-school child.
