This Early Childhood workshop will provide a specific focus on working with babies and toddlers. In the workshop, Jen will explore prenatal and child development and the vital role of music at this early stage. Participants will sing, chant and play the songs, rhymes and games that are most effective in these years, as well as discussing the impact of this repertoire on children’s development. Parents, caregivers, early childhood educators, music teachers and those who are interested in music and children are all invited to participate in this practical workshop. Download the flier.
About the Tutor:
Jennifer Teh (B. Ed, B Mus.) is a Kodaly certified choir leader and music teacher, with 14 years experience working with all ages, from babies to adults. She is the founder of 'Hush Little Baby Early Childhood Music Classes' where she puts into practice her strong belief that music and singing should be a part of every child's life. There is a substantial body of research supporting the importance of sharing music with infants and children, and Jennifer is passionate about sharing this information with as many people as possible in order to ensure that music belongs to every child.
Jennifer is the recipient of the Australian Governmental National Award for Quality Schooling and the Queensland College of Teachers Excellence Award. She provides training and consultation throughout Australia to childcare centres wishing to integrate music more thoroughly and effectively into their daily practice and also runs a number of weekly programmes where she facilitates interaction between caregiver and child through the use of songs, games, nursery rhymes, tickles and bounces.
Jennifer is the founding conductor of the St Aidan's Community Choir. She established this choir eleven years ago after recognising the need in her school community for an opportunity for staff, past students, parents and members of the broader community to sing together.
Throughout her career Jennifer has conducted many choirs for children, adolescents and adults, including the Birralee Piccolos and Kids choirs, Duchesne College Women's Choir and Kambu Indigenous Choir. She is regularly invited to appear as a guest conductor at workshops with community choirs throughout Queensland.
