Morpeth’s babies and toddlers will soon be able to enjoy music and movement classes thanks to an ambitious mum.

Lindsay Moodie, 36, hopes to inspire and mesmerise little ones with her bright and cheery ‘Jo Doll’ mascot, which she will use along with a range of props, instruments and songs to encourage musical participation from pre-school children and their parents.

Having recently purchased a Jo Jingles franchise for the Newcastle area, Ms Moodie is set on making her musical mark with the youngsters.

The classes will take place in Morpeth, Cramlington, Gosforth, Bedlington and Newcastle.

Ms Moodie, who previously worked in sales support and purchasing, said: “My previous job gave me a great insight into running a business.

“After attending Jo Jingles classes with my own daughter, I was amazed at the difference being exposed to music from a young age could make.”

She believes that music can make a world of difference in terms of early years’ development for pre-school children.

“Research from scientists has shown that babies can remember melodies they have heard in the womb even a month after they are born so you are never too young to start benefiting from regular exposure to music,” she said.

Ms Moodie has already recruited a new class teacher to help her develop her business in the region further.
