Welcome to my classes in

Highbury and Islington

Welcome to Monkey Music Highbury and Islington.  My name is Jessie Greer and I am thrilled to be running classes in the Highbury and Islington areas.  The arts have always been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. I have participated in orchestral and vocal music from a young age and studied Theatre at the Florida State University School of Theatre and was a theatre educator in the States before moving to London and discovering Monkey Music.  I have loved coming to work every day as a Monkey Music teacher and seeing my students discover music for themselves was such a joy.  I have also seen the powerful effect of music on my own two children who even experienced Monkey Music as I taught through both of my pregnancies!  After my second child was born I decided that I wanted to dive even deeper in to my involvement with Monkey Music and I am now delighted to be offering classes in Highbury and Islington.  Come on along and join us! We’d love to have you at one of our complimentary classes and there is always fun to be had at Monkey Music!

With so many classes for little ones in the Highbury and Islington area it’s important to know what makes us special.

 

What is Monkey Music all about?

 

Monkey Music was started 22 years ago by Angie Coates, a professional musician who was looking for a music class for her infant daughter that was education, professional, fun and helped with each area of her development.  She decided to start Monkey Music and since then it has continued to grow and develop into  truly inspirational, and award-winning, nationally-recognised classes for little ones.

We have separate unique curriculums for each stage of your little one’s pre school development with babies, toddlers and children grouped into small classes according to their age (see below for details).

Classes are 30 minutes long, themed, structured, action packed and beautifully presented with gorgeous puppets, hand crafted props, over three hundred songs, specialist percussion instruments, activities, dance, movement, magical bubbles and super learning resources for the children to experience and explore.

Our talented, vivacious and comprehensively trained teachers pour their hearts into the music classes, wowing the children and parents with their wonderful singing voices and inspirational, musical approach, guaranteeing lots of fun and giggles. 

 

Rock ‘n’ Roll – Babies from 3 months

Parents often tell me that they are amazed at the response that their tiny babies have from our classes.

 Monkey Music has a unique, specialist baby music class designed stimulate 3 key areas of physical, language, social development and early learning.

The classes have a wonderful nurturing, loving feel with lots of baby giggles as the little ones are mesmerised by a wonderful array of innovative musical ideas and resources, fascinating sounds and absorbing baby music activities, imaginative sensory props, specialist baby percussion instruments, super puppets and amazing giant mobiles. It's wonderful for our parents to enjoy watching each other’s baby develop and notice each little milestone!

 

Heigh-Ho  Toddlers from 12 months

Now your Toddler is on the move, our curriculum is designed to help you interact together in line with their growing attention span, developing visual memory, fine motor skills and early language. Classes incorporate children's music activities as well as having fun sitting down, singing, watching and learning from our fantastic puppets, props, instruments and extensive musical resources. In this way the class remains structured but gives room for your child to explore ( we don't expect them to be able to sit down all the time during the class but do ask parents for a bit of help if we need to!).

Children thrive on the steady music beat in Monkey's orchestra time and as the weeks go by you will be amazed to see your child copy a wide variety of actions and activities, learning to shake, rattle and roll!

 

Jiggety-Jig  2+3 yrs old

In our 2-3 year olds music classes we build on the growing ability and attention span of your child. It's amazing to see their response to the class as they sit and concentrate on themed topics, resources and activities within the interactive class structure, encouraging sitting, singing and watching, copying and learning, co ordination and fine motor skill development, sharing, taking turns, confidence building, dance and movement as well as playing and answering musical phrases in our orchestra time as the months go by! It really is amazing to watch them develop!

 

It would be wonderful to have you in our Monkey Music Highbury and Islington classes. Please get in touch today about a complimentary class!
