Welcome to Monkey Music Ely and Cambridge.

Whilst working as a Primary School Teacher in London I had the privilege of teaching some Reception children who had attended Monkey Music classes. 

I was amazed at their confidence, listening skills and musical knowledge.  I observed some Monkey Music groups and was inspired to run my own Monkey Music Franchise.  I started running Monkey Music classes for babies and toddlers in Ely, Cambridge, Littleport and Histon in January 2010. 

Monkey Music is the perfect way to combine my love of music and teaching.  Through the use of songs, rhymes, colourful percussion instruments, exciting props and a fun, educational and progressive curriculum our babies and pre-school children are introduced to a range of musical skills and are given the opportunity to ‘nurture a lifetime of music’. 

Book your first FREE Monkey Music class today.  We look forward to meeting you soon.

Why Choose Monkey Music Ely and Cambridge for your baby and toddler activities?

As a qualified Primary School Teacher specialising in teaching The Early Years and Key Stage One I have always been passionate about planning fun, practical and inspiring lessons and teaching in a way that entertains and captures the attention of very young children.  Monkey Music provides a progressive, educational and fun four stage curricula with classes which are individually designed for each age group.  The classes start with our youngest Babies at 3 months and progress through to our oldest Pre-School Children at 4 years.  By attending Monkey Music classes our Babies, Toddlers and Pre-School Children gain a sound musical knowledge as we cover such areas as musical sequences, pitch, tempo, rhythm, melody and written notation.  As well as developing important musical skills our Babies and Pre-School children are meeting and interacting with new friends so they are developing socially.  As we sing original and traditional songs language skills continue to develop and the musical activities that we offer encourage an active use of the imagination.  By playing hand held percussion instruments and moving  in such ways as walking, marching and jumping  in response to music our Babies and Pre-School children are developing their fine and gross motor physical skills too.  Monkey Music classes offer half an hour each week where an adult and their Baby or young Child can bond and learn together in a nurturing, exciting, fun and stimulating environment.  This special time plays an important part in the future emotional and intellectual development of each Baby and Child.  I truly believe that Monkey Music understands how young children learn best and I hope that you are able to try it for yourselves.

What Happens At A Weekly Monkey Music Class?

Monkey Music Ely and Cambridge run music classes Monday to Friday at venues in Cambridge, Ely, Histon and Littleport.  We hope that there is an action packed class to suit everyone but please do let us know if not as extra classes can be added to our timetable as required.  At Monkey Music each week we provide a group activity for the whole family.  Our Babies and Pre-School Children are learning whilst having fun and we hope that our parents, grandparents and carers are also learning and having fun whilst spending time with other like-minded adults as we encourage them to socialise and hopefully form life-long friendships.  During a Rock’n’Roll class we encourage our Babies to track musical sounds, reach out for, grasp and play our specially chosen percussion instruments which are perfect for tiny hands.  At Heigh-Ho our energetic and excitable Toddlers love to be up on their feet and exploring the space around them.  We use percussion instruments, the drum and beater is a favourite, as we try and keep the musical beat.  At Jiggety-Jig we enjoy using hoops and the parachute alongside our percussion instruments and we really encourage our older Toddlers to work together and share.  Our Ding-Dong children are getting ready for school and I never fail to be amazed at how clever they are.  They listen to and learn facts about the different families of the orchestra, confidently sing solos, play rhythms of crotchets, quavers and rests on percussion instruments and more.  Book your first FREE class today to experience the magic of Monkey Music!

Monkey Music Parties

A Monkey Music Party is a fantastic way to celebrate a birthday or other special occasion with your Baby or Pre-School Child and their friends and family members.  Monkey Music Ely and Cambridge plan a range of musical activities including familiar songs and parachute games and provide lots of opportunities to play drums, tambourines, maracas, bells, boomwackers and more to ensure that the birthday boy/girl and all of the party guests have a fun time.  Monkey and Baby Mo even bring along a special Monkey Music card and gift for the birthday child.  Please email or call to find out more information or to book your own Monkey Music Party. 

Monkey Music Holiday Workshops

If you are looking for a fun activity to entertain your Baby or Toddler during the school holidays then read on.  As well as running weekly music classes during term time for new and existing customers Monkey Music Ely and Cambridge also offer Holiday Workshops 3 times a year at Christmas, Easter and during the Summer.  These mixed-age Workshops are open to older/younger siblings and other family members and friends who are not Monkey Music members.  We also love welcoming back children who are no longer able to attend weekly classes.  Monkey Music membership lasts for a lifetime!  Every carefully planned and themed Workshop features Monkey and Baby Mo, songs, instruments, actions, props, the parachute, bubbles and more.  All children attending a Workshop receive a sticker, balloon and colouring sheet to take home.  Contact us at Monkey Music Ely and Cambridge any time for details of our next Holiday Workshop.

Monkey Music Merchandise

If you enjoy singing along with Monkey and Baby Mo at your weekly Monkey Music class then why not consider buying some Monkey Music Merchandise so that the fun can continue at home.  Merchandise is available at class from your teacher or from our online shop.  Do remember to log in as a member of The Little Monkey Club to receive your exclusive member discount if shopping online.  The CDs which feature original and traditional songs are perfect for car journeys as well as for listening to and dancing along to at home.  Monkey is a popular birthday gift and Baby Mo makes an ideal stocking filler at Christmas.  Samples of Merchandise are on display at every class so do please take a look.
