Get started with all things music, singing and dance.
Perfect for young kids growing up on the Gold Coast!


I never get sick of music, whether it’s playing or teaching it and I hope I can make my students feel the same way.

Jess has been teaching both private and group lessons for the last 15 years. Beginning with tiny tots ballet and movement classes alongside early childhood education care work all the way through to advanced vocal coaching.

Jess is a highly experienced teacher across all age groups. However, now that she has a toddler of her own she is especially passionate about early music education as she has seen first hand the benefits. 

It is her sincere belief that you are never too young to start your music journey.  

Hey everyone! My name is Jade and Im so glad to say that I will be taking on VAPA Minis for 2024, along side the wonderful Jess!

I’ve always had a strong passion for development and progress, especially with the earlier milestones and younger children. Prior to my role at VAPA, I was leading in Kindergarten, as well as working with other ages, while also creating music programs just like VAPA minis, but for centres! 

Children love to sing, listen to different sounds, make different sounds, as they are curious as to what the world has for them! By incorporating music into their learning fundamentals and skills, I’ve always seen such a great progress from various amounts of children, all in different aspects; whether it is becoming more confident within themselves and making friendships, discovering and knowing the different sounds of instruments, as well as different textures, focusing on the development of both their audible and visual skills. 

Another thing I also noticed and that I love to focus on is building up those fine motor and gross motor skills through fiddling with different instruments, using their bodies with movement to run and find the instruments in games like hide and seek. Music in general, is just a fantastic way for the children to learn more about sounds, create friendships, and learn to be themselves and build their confidence which helps lead them into further education such as school! 

Im so excited to see what the little munchkins have in store for me and I can’t wait to see the excitement and joy, seeing their passion and evolve. It’s such a rewarding experience for not only the children, but also the parents and of course, us teachers! 

Hope to see heaps of my little friends very soon! Can’t wait to explore music, movement and sounds with you all.


VAPA Minis is located in the Vocal Adrenaline Performing Arts facilities in Burleigh and Nerang on the Gold Coast!

The studios contains a waiting room, kitchen facilities and a bathroom and change table area available for use.

For the classes we use non-toxic baby-safe play mats and high quality instruments for your child to get started on their musical journey.

Our classes are kept to a maximum of 10 per class for the 0-3 age groups and 6 per class for the 4-5 years to ensure that there can be more individual attention, no one is left out and less distractions.

Ignite your child’s passion
