BabyJazz says;

"We are so excited to have been invited by the Jewish Museum to run these Special BabyJazz sessions to compliment their acclaimed exhibition Amy Winehouse: Family Portrait. Music and Family were clearly central to Amy's world and at BabyJazz we strongly believe that too. Amy's music will remain inspirational for generations to come and we hope our Special sessions will offer Babies and Families a chance to celebrate Amy's life and music through singing, fun and musical play - which is what great music is really all about."

What Parents say;

"Real toe tapping jazz for parents and babies who are stuck at home all day, great for the soul"

 "Absolutely love the jazz take on nursery rhymes. Very entertaining for both parents and bubs. Stunning voice Ruby."

If you have never been to a BabyJazz session expect great live music, fun and lots of laughs. Led by Singer and Early Years specialist Ruby Barker and accompanied by guitarist Kim Murray the classes cleverly blend jazz standards, original tunes and nursery rhymes with colourful props and puppets to the delight of babies, pre-Schoolers, parents and grandparents!

The Family Programme at Jewish Museum is made possible thanks to the generous support of Lord and Lady Levene.
