Award Winning Children’s Musical Activities for babies and toddlers in Guildford, Farnham and Goldaming

Monkey Music’s highly trained teachers in Guildford, Farnham, Godalming and Bramley, Surrey  cater for preschool children from as young as three months up to four years, gently encouraging social, motor, musical and creative skills in a stimulating and friendly environment. Carer’s often comment that we wow the children with wonderful singing and energetic, original classes.

Our baby and toddler music classes, are small and tailor-made for children and families. Monkey Music makes full use of the 30-minute sessions to captivate kids with a combination of great resources and learning opportunities – catchy music, songs, percussion instruments, dance activities, visual props and lots and lots of energy. There are lots of resources for the children to experiment with – as well as percussion and musical instruments – to make music and to explore learning on their own.

Monkey Music’s tried and tested children’s musical activities use three hundred traditional and original songs, musical games and exciting movement ideas throughout the learning curriculum, with the babies or children grouped in small classes according to their age. 

In the words of one of our mums –

Simply the best baby class we go to. Becca has an amazing voice and keeps both of my boys captivated for the whole session with lively songs and music play. We have been going since the boys were 11 weeks old and at 18 months they still thoroughly enjoy it, I am amazed at how much can be packed into 30 minutes’.

 

Our Musical Journey

Monkey Music is the longest running pre-school music class in the UK recently celebrating 21 years of classes. Thousands of babies and preschool children enjoy our weekly classes all over the country. Since arriving in Guildford, Godalming and Farnham our classes have become highly sort after and we are constantly expanding to other local areas including Bramley and Cranleigh.

 

Since classes started Monkey Music has been nominated and won many prestigious mother and baby awards, including the Best National Pre-Schooler Development Activity Award and the Best National Toddler Development Class.

 

Monkey Music’s roots are grown from professional music sources.  Classes began in 1993 created and inspired by Guildhall School of Music and Drama graduate Angie Coates, Monkey Music’s Founder and Managing Director.  Monkey Music’s popularity led to the company being franchised in the late 1990s.

There are now more than 50 franchises across the country operating in more than 300 locations across the UK. It arrived in Guildford and Godalming, Farnham and Bramley 2 years ago and runs classes locally in many church halls, kindergartens, Pre schools and nurseries around the GU1 – Gu10 area.

 

Our specialist teachers are expert in the fields of music and pre school development and are chosen for their natural ability to communicate with and entertain young children and their families.They embark on a  rigorous training programme enabling them to  encourage developmental learning, social and musical skills within a fun, stimulating and friendly environment.

 

Music Classes and Child Development

The first organ to develop in the womb is a babies ears, enabling them to take comfort in their mother voice and heart beat from just 11 weeks. We are so often told by mothers in class that their baby loves music. In fact all children are born with instinctive musicality but it takes early encouragement to enable a baby or child to fulfil their full musical potential.

There have been numerous studies which have shown that music has far reaching benefits for toddlers and very young children, especially when taught in a group. Early exposure to singing, listening to and playing music can aid a whole range of developmental and educational skills.

Our classes have been honed over the 21 years to enable the best curricula to help a child fulfil their best. We use action songs and rhymes to encourage language and numerical skills and top quality hand held percussion to aid fine motor skills. Children develop a good awareness of one another, learning to interact and practise their social skills, they gain an awareness and confidence of the space around them through movement games and grow rapidly in self esteem and confidence as their involvement in the musical group increases.

 

Monkey Music and Parents

Monkey Music has become the weekly whole family highlight for mums as well as babies and children. We have grandparents, nannies and carers coming for their charges and they have all learned the benefits of Monkey Music.

The weekly class brings a fun dose of song, movement and rhythm but also is a valued social network of likeminded mothers, fathers and grandparents too. Many lasting friendships are formed at Monkey Music’s preschool classes and since, unlike at nursery and kindergarten, our musical activities are shared, there more chances to meet other families at play.

Learning More

We are lucky in the Surrey area to have a huge choice of activities and groups for baby and toddlers. A vast array of song groups, dance activities, movement classes, singing lessons and of course a whole range of different music classes catering for babies, toddlers, pre school children and kids of all ages. We realise that it can be a baffling choice to ensure that your child is getting possible start. We hope the wonderful reputation Money Music has built over 21 years will assure you that for baby and nursery age children, we’re the best on offer. With excellent resources, quality, specially commissioned  songs,  a tried and tested music teaching curriculum and highly trained professional teaching staff, Monkey Music is an award winning family formula.

 

What’s Next?

We look forward to hearing from you soon. Please do get in touch if you have any questions about our classes. We would love to welcome you into the Monkey Music family, where you can meet other local mums, dads, babies and toddlers in the Guildford and Waverley area.
