About Me

After just 6 months of running classes I was nominated as "Best Activity Leader for The Under 5s (south)" which I think says something about my classes!

By trade I am a private music teacher but I'm also a mum of 3 young children so running Caterpillar Music ticks all the boxes for me. I know how to engage and stimulate your child and I aim to make each Caterpillar Music class an exciting experience for the both of you.
Each unique session at Caterpillar Music will include amazing puppets, exciting instruments, bubbles, parachutes, light shows, sensory equipment as well as learning about colours, numbers, shapes and more. Your child will learn through play and song and make friends whilst doing it.
There is a lovely, relaxed atmosphere at our classes and we encourage your child to join in as much or as little as they wish.

A big welcome to Nicky & Lisa who are running classes alongside me throughout Basingstoke!

Nicky: I'm a mum of 2 girls and I've been bringing my children to Jaz's class for 3 years now. It was great to find a baby group that catered for both my pre-schooler and my baby. We all loved the class so when the opportunity to work with Jaz came up I was very excited! I'm looking forward to re-creating the relaxed cheerful atmosphere of Caterpillar music. I love singing all the old favourite children's songs, especially those with actions!
Nicky will be running sessions in Bramley, Oakridge and helping out in Chineham too.

Lisa: I have worked in childcare in nurseries and as a private nanny not just here but across the World! I'm also a Caterpillar Music mummy and have been bringing my little one to classes. I loves singing and doing action songs for the children and have excellent knowledge of how to keep them engaged and stimulated and believe singing is an excellent way of learning.
I cant wait to start working with caterpillar music and seeing lots of smiling, happy faces.
Lisa will be running sessions in Hatch Warren, Brighton Hill & Tadley.

My husband and daughter, Amelia only get one day off a week together and this is the thing we love to do. Amelia is 18 months old and she absolutely loves it, my husband and I enjoy the singing and activities too :). We can't wait for the new season to start. Jasmine is so wonderful with all the kids and really makes them want to get involved. LOVE IT!!!

Thank you so much for letting Ella look in bag on her last session. She is fluent in all of the songs- her favourites are Speckled Frogs and Monkeys Bouncing. So sad now she can't come any more.
Thank you. You do your job so well with genuine passion and enthusiasm xx

my son and I have been going to caterpillar music since he was 3 months old (now 13 months old). He absolutely loves its and so do I. Not only is it great for his current and future development but its such a friendly non clicky group. Jaz is always full of enthusiasm and encouraging to the children x

I take my almost 1 year old to Caterpillar music on Mondays. We both have so much fun and she really enjoys all the songs and learning the actions along with them. She especially loves the musical instruments and puppets! Jaz is excellent at getting all the kids involved. Lovely friendly atmosphere . I highly recommend this class :-)

My 20 month old little girl and I love Caterpillar Music classes so much that we keep booking back on. They've really bought out the confidence in my daughter, she's learning new songs and actions and she has the time of her life when we're there. Definitely recommend Caterpillar Music to everyone x

We've just finished our first block of caterpillar music sessions and have signed up for more. My (almost) 2 year old loves it and is constantly surprising me by singing songs she has remembered from classes throughout the week. Her confidence has also improved and she's now racing up to collect her instrument or to help put the puppets away. Looking forward to classes returning in September :-)

As a twin mummy it is sometimes quite daunting to attend classes as you never know whether it will be possible to look after two babies. From the initial phone conversation with Jaz I felt like we would be just fine at caterpillar music.

Jaz is a fabulous instructor (and a wonderful person). She has really helped me with my twins which has encouraged me to keep attending the class. Sometimes I think I enjoy it more than the babes!! Also very interested to see that Jaz is a music teacher-may very well be tapping into that when the babes are older. 10 out of 10 for caterpillar music!

Our grandaughter has just completed ten weeks of singing and dancing activities. She has gained enormous confidence not only in herself but also in relating to other children and adults in the group. I must also say that we as grandparents have thoroughly enjoyed the experience, thanks to Jasmine.

Hey! Just wanted to say that my two year old loves your caterpillar classes! He is excited to see 'Jaz' every week, sing with the puppets and dance to the bubbles. It's amazing that you find new ways to capture them while retaining the routines they know and love. Thanks for making music enjoyable we can't wait to sign up next term again- and I look forward to bringing my newborn:) x

This is a lovely, relaxed class, the smaller size of class makes it brilliant for the younger babies also. Ours have been attending since around 10 weeks. Jasmine has them mesmerised. She is enthusiastic and is clearly popular with the little ones who rush to sit on her lap!

Me and my son went to a class yesterday and he loved it! I love the songs and the routines. It's exactly what I was looking for, something fun, relaxed and musically to do with my 15 month year old son. I've signed up right away. Thank you Jasmine!

Caterpillar Music Customer, UK,

It's a great class for learning through music and play and has been an excellent environment for early socialising. Evie has learnt to share and communicate with the other children

Caterpillar Music Customer, UK,

We really enjoyed every week and the different topics, each class was full of laughter and fun and relaxed

Caterpillar Music Customer, UK,

It's easy to tell she loves the class by the big grin and twinkle in her eyes as soon as the music starts
