Musicians wanted for Babigloo Music for Babies

Salary: £100 per day

Application Deadline: 31.05.17 17:00

Babigloo Music for Babies

South West

Babigloo Music for Babies is expanding. We are looking for three confident and flexible musicians to train in the Edwin Gordon approach to Music for Babies. Our offer includes training in the approach, opportunities to observe the work at two festivals, devise and perform concerts for babies with the Babigloo Team.


As part of our organisational development (pending funding May 2017) this is both a training opportunity as well as an opportunity to join our team long term. We currently deliver workshops in children’s centres across Poole and now want to develop into devising concerts.


Babigloo Music for Babies has been developed by Jenny Gordon with SAMP (Sociedade Artística Muisical de Pousos) music school in Leiria, Portugal, with Michele O’Brien, Sam Mason and Colin Phillimore.

The approach we use is a non verbal, music led class based on the early year’s theories of American Professor of Music, Edwin Gordon. The class is structured and led purely by the use of classical music and vocal sounds, rhythms and patterns.

You should be:

●        both a competent performer and someone comfortable in interacting within Early Years (EY) settings (initially 0-24 months).

●        flexibility to work as part of an experienced team of performers and EY practitioners.

●        Multi instrumentalist would be an advantage. Although we are open to all instruments we will be looking for bass instruments and accordion.

●        DBS clearance is preferable but WILL be required before performing with Babigloo.

●        You must be available for the following dates in the first instance

Dates:   Auditions:                           Monday 5 June (time/venue to be confirmed)  

Creation Day:                    Thursday 15 June

Observation Days:           Saturday 17 June-Portsmouth Festivities

Concerts                              Sunday 20th August (Artsreach)

                                                More Artsreach and concert dates to follow

Additional Rehearsals   Friday 11 August


Deadline for applications is Wednesday 31st May by 5pm.


Please apply by email with your CV and a cover letter outlining your suitability for the post. Please outline any experience you have with early years (not essential), details of instruments played and your availability for the initial dates.


It is likely that auditions and rehearsals will take place either in Pentridge (North Dorset) or Lighthouse, Poole.


Fee        Training days x 5 £100 per day

                Travel to audition £20

                Creation days @ £100 per day

                Concerts £100 per concert

Travel to Observation workshops £20
