Cheeky Tunes is the newest song and dance craze. It is a unique and different music program for kids from 1-5years.
Pop bubbles. Play the drums. Rock a baby doll to sleep. Dress up as a super hero. Dance with streamers. Sing. Laugh. Learn. Cheeky Tunes is designed to engage children in multiple activities in 'show' like environment. It works with a philosophy of learning music through fun and Play.
Eleanor Clapham, the creator of Cheeky Tunes is a professional singer and performer, she returned to Australia after enjoying fame and success as an opera singer in Vietnam. She was the first foreigner to master and perform traditional Vietnamese Opera. When she had her own children she saw a gap in what was available in children's music activites. 'I used to take my son to Wiggles concerts and he'd love it them but I couldn't take him every week. Plus there was always a distance between the performer and my son, the audience. He really wanted to be part of the show. Once I took him to a concert at the ANZ Arena where there was 1000 other kids there and my son got overwhelmed, he turned to me and said 'I want to go home and watch the Wiggles on TV'.
It is a unique experience as it is set up like a live show but is designed like a class. The room is lit with stage lights and disco balls so you feel like you are there for a show but then children are given props to interact and become part of the show. 'Cheeky the Monkey' is projected onto the screen behind, she dances, sings, and even plays tricks on the performer.
Aside from having a whole lot of fun the benefits of this program are enormous. Of course they learn to sing, dance, and play instruments but the real benefits are that they build confidence from being able to take part of and contribute to the show.
"The first time I brought my 2 daughters to Cheeky Tunes they were shy. They stood back and didn't really join in with the activities. I wasn't sure if they liked it but through the week they nagged me to go back again. As the weeks continued I noticed a change in them, they started to join in more of the songs, they were getting into it more, dancing along, and really coming out of their shells and embracing their 'silly side' more. They had a lovely connection with the performer. They love the songs and listen to them all week long. But my favourite thing about Cheeky Tunes is the that both fall straight to sleep after lunch but they've really had a work out" Anna- mother of Svea and Elsa.
At Cheeky Tunes they love silliness, cheekiness and fun. Cheeky Tunes is a show and a class combined for kids aged 1 to 5yrs where kids can sing and dance along and be part of the show. They call them 'Weekly Shows'. they are held weekly just like a class so that you can enjoy a weekly dose of entertainment, learning, laughter, song and dance. Each week the show changes. Inspired by the belly laugh songs Peter Coombe, all the original songs from Cheeky Tunes are Funny and Cheeky. Kids and Parents will be laughing and singing along in this cheeky show.
'I love how the songs even make the parents laugh, my favourite is the Babicino song' Amy Ava - mother of Savanna.
