tots jam is currently taking a break as me and my saxophone are on maternity leave
please check back in the summer for the new timetable and new classes and follow me on insta and fb (@tots.jam) to be the first to hear about my return to jamming!
"Thank you Annika! You Smashed it! [My little one] kept saying 'next!' "more!' after each song"
"Thank you! I so needed that"
"Honestly its just so good. Even my husband says it and he doesn't have an opinion on much!"
"Always a real highlight of the week. Best as ever!! Everyone is raving about your classes"
tots jam is now on maternity leave!
I started tots jam in October 2020 with 1 teenie jammers and six tots jammers. Little did I know that 18 months later I would be pausing for a third maternity leave with more than 1,100 off you who come to classes; some of you who come every now and again... and some of you, multiple times a week (and sometimes multiple times a day).
I cannot believe how far tots jam has come. I’ve had so so many lovely comments expressing how much the groups have meant to you in such uncertain - and sometimes traumatic - times. I also get such joy when you send me videos of your little ones singing tots jam songs and copying me playing instruments. Sharing my passion for music and inspiring some of these little jammers to learn instruments brings me so much happiness.
But most of all I want to say thank you to all of you. It’s you guys who make the classes what they are; by joining in, spreading the word and by getting to know other adults and making all our new jammers feel so welcome. I have had several people get in touch to say tots jam is the first group they haven’t cried after. Or the first group where they have felt no judgement. You never know what the person next to you is going through and you have truly made each other feel so welcome. What a lovely group of people you are.
So, I'll be back before you know it, probably with a baby in tow so please don’t forget about me and all the tots jam fun! Remember to follow me on insta and Facebook (@tots,.jam) and sign up to the mailing list below to be the first to hear about my return to jamming. I already have a notebook full of new ideas for when I return and I can’t wait to share them all with you!
Lots of love to you all and thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.
See you on the other side!
