MAKING MUSIC WITH JOJO – ONLINE WORKSHOP
This is screen time transformed! An engaging musical workshop for your child that will have them on their feet; singing and dancing along with Jojo.
Jojo loves to sing and encourage others to learn to use their voices to tell stories, express their feelings and feel connected to others in song!
In this 45 minute workshop, children will learn new original songs created by Jojo as well as family favourites, all handpicked to support participants in their confidence in musical expression and movement. There’s a song about feelings, songs about silliness, some modern twists on classic nursery rhymes and plenty of musical games!
Jojo brings years of experience as a classical singer and conductor of choirs to this engaging workshop focused on using the voice as a vehicle for creative expression!
Recommended for ages 4 – 7 and their families.
