Jam sessions for parents and babies at popular not-for-profit music studio
PARENTS and their children can jam with Wrexham Sounds at a series of new family sessions.
The not-for-profit social enterprise has launched successful music and sensory activities for babies and toddlers.
Baby Jam and Toddler Jam bring them together in a warm, welcoming environment at the popular Rhosrobin site.
Vocal coach Clemmy Gong says the interactive, fun gatherings have been embraced by those in attendance.
“The children and their parents get involved and the focus is very much on enjoyment, social skills and overall development,” said Clemmy.
“We have been holding sessions for babies up to 12 months and toddlers aged one to three years old, where they learn and develop their fine and gross motor skills by playing with musical instruments and sensory equipment.”
She added: “We will be introducing different activities – including the use of sensory resources such as bubble blowers, lights, and items with different textures to heighten children’s senses and aid development.
“The feedback has been positive, and the sessions are starting to fill up fast so we encourage people to get in touch if they would like to take part or book online via our website.”
Wrexham Sounds General Manager Olivia Gallagher said they are extremely grateful for support from Co-op Food and a recent community donation has helped them to purchase equipment needed to deliver the sessions.
“You can already see how much the babies and toddlers enjoy being here but it’s also beneficial to the parents who are able to make new friends in a different setting, which has been welcomed in light of recent challenges due to the pandemic,” she said.
