Tahlia Mauri Licensee – Wiggle And Giggle Music – Erina
Tahlia joined Wiggle And Giggle Music in Term 1, 2018 as the first “Giggle And Sing” Licensee and is the owner of Wiggle And Giggle Music – Erina.
Tahlia’s classes are held at Erina Leagues Club on Wednesday and Friday mornings.
Tahlia first became aware about Wiggle And Giggle Music when she was looking for classes for her son Ariki in 2017 and quickly fell in love with the “Giggle And Sing” program. Tahlia loved the program because it “got us out of the house for a fun, music and puppet filled, social activity”. I saw Ariki’s interest from the first class, but now a year later he is 100% more confident and speaks of Wiggle and Giggle several times through the week.”
Tahlia has always had a love for children and dreamed of finding a job that would allow her to spend time with her son and at the same time give her complete job satisfaction.
When Tahlia heard that Wiggle And Giggle Music were looking for a licensee to take over the Erina classes she jumped at the chance. Having an excellent understanding of how the classes were run (having attended as a client) it was easy for Tahlia to understand what mums expect when attending.
In Tahlia’s spare time she enjoys making the most of the time she gets with her family, sharing adventures with friends and also competing with Greenpoint Drill and Dance Team winning numerous National Championships.
Tahlia is excited about the prospect of expanding classes in the near future and continuing her journey educating and excited as a Giggle And Sing Licensee.
For anyone interested in joining as a licensee she says “This new journey has fit so well into my lifestyle. I’m all about work life balance and doing something you love so that you enjoy every day. I have definitely found that balance with Wiggle and Giggle Music. I look forward to going to see my little clients smiling faces each day and the pride I feel when more and more clients join is irreplaceable, as I know I am doing a good job at providing fun and enjoyment for their little ones.”
Wiggle And Giggle Music Erina uses the “Giggle And Sing” program.
