me to a Monkey Music class in 2003 I was so inspired I bought my own

Award winning Children's music activities
Monkey Music's award winning pre school music classes for babies, toddlers
and children in Chelsea began in 2003 and have an enviable local reputation
as the best and most popular of Children's music classes and activities in
Chelsea, Gloucester Road, South Kensington, Knightsbridge, Belgravia
What is Monkey Music all about?
We have four separate curriculums for each stage of your little one’s pre school
development, from 3 months up to 4 years old, 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 small team of talented, vivacious and comprehensively trained teachers pour
their hearts and souls 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
‘I was totally amazed at my tiny baby’s response to his very first baby music
class, he was truly fascinated and stimulated throughout ’.
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
'Thank you so much for all your hard work in your wonderful music classes. I
can’t wait to bring my second child as I would hate to deny her the same
experience. I have been to lots of Children's music activities and I have
never experienced anything like your amazing pre school music lessons, I
really don't think my son would have been ready for nursery without Monkey
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!
Ding-Dong 3+4 yrs old
As a classical violinist Jayne has been able to bring her substantial musical
knowledge into the classroom, providing a unique class, something which is
not available at school, providing the best possible platform to go on and learn
a musical instrument.
“THANK YOU for your magnificent work over the last 4 years. It has been
nothing less than amazing to see my son respond in a musical way as he
develops. The Ding-Dong classes have been formative, challenging and
engaging, thoroughly introducing the orchestra and its' instruments, exposing
the children to major and minor tonalities and musical phrasing, successfully
setting the foundations of musical notation and lately the children have been
learning to make music together. Truly wonderful!”
Parental and carer involvement in our Music classes for Babies,
Toddlers and Children.
Monkey Music is a learning environment, preparing your child for kindergarten
and nursery, setting the foundations for future learning and development. The
more you get involved in the class the more you will both gain from the
experience, we really couldn't do without all the amazing parental and carer
interaction we encourage in our classes.
