Welcome to my classes in

Putney Barnes and Fulham

Hello, I’m Jeni and I run the Monkey Music classes in Putney, Barnes and Fulham.

As an early years teacher, music co-ordinator and mother of three I’ve always been passionate about the importance of music in babies and young children’s lives, so I was delighted when I discovered Monkey Music! The classes are such a fun, stimulating and inspirational way to enjoy the wonders of music with your baby or pre-school child.  With our unique blend of traditional and original songs, little ones use actions, explore musical sound play and engage with colourful props and percussion instruments.  The age specific groups are perfectly paced and definitely designed to nurture a lifetime love of music!

Monkey Music is a highlight of the week for lots of local families, so if you’re looking for a captivating musical activity in Putney, Barnes and Fulham to share with your little one, look no further.

We offer a free complimentary first class, so please get in touch. We would love to meet you.

Award winning children’s music activity classes for babies and toddlers in Putney, Barnes and Fulham. 

Since classes first started in 1993, Monkey Music’s hugely popular classes   quickly became the ‘must-do’ activity for babies and children in London.  Now across the whole of the UK, thousands of families every week attend Monkey Music classes around the country.  Here in Putney, Barnes and Fulham, Monkey Music has become a rite of passage for many babies and nursery age children and their parents!

 

Monkey Music has been nominated for and won several important awards including the Best National Pre-Schooler Development Activity and the Best National Toddler Development Class.

 

What’s it all about?  

 

At Monkey Music’s popular local classes in Fulham, Putney and Barnes, we know how important it is to keep little ones captivated and engaged.  For babies as young as 3mths to pre-school children up to four years, our progressive, age appropriate musical curricula has been carefully honed over 20 years.  With children grouped in small classes according to age, each 30 minute session is perfectly pitched, and jam packed with learning opportunities, catchy music, great resources, special percussion instruments, movement and dance activities and lots of energy and fun!   Our teachers are all actresses, performers and musicians, with boundless vitality and enthusiasm. Mostly parents themselves, they all adore babies and young children, and all bring something special and unique to their classes.

 

 

 

Babies are born to love music

 

Baby’s ears are the first organ to develop, and at 5 months an unborn baby will be able to hear the world around them.  Newborn babies have a highly sensitive ear and an abundance of genes and synapses all ready to respond to and learn music.  By the time babies are 3 months old, they a re actively starting to respond to music, turning towards a sound, swatting it and even beginning to vocalise sounds like aahh and ooo.

 

With their parents and carers, babies are now ready to join in our lovely gentle yet stimulating Rock’n’Roll classes!  Focusing on bonding and confidence, awakening baby’s senses and sharing music together, these classes are the perfect way to share precious time together.

 

 

Music and child development

 

Research has found that exposure to music early in life supports a child in almost all areas of development. Children who attend a music class show improved memory, they smile more and develop better communication skills. 

 

Listening and responding to and performing musical songs and rhymes teaches children how language is constructed and has a direct impact on language aquisition.  Moving to music, babies and children learn balance, co-ordination, body awareness and rhythm and they develop fine motor skills through playing hand held percussion .  Music and rhyme increase a child's ability in spatial reasoning, which can enhance a child's mathematical and scientific abilities.

 

A child’s involvement in musical learning in a group increases their selfesteem and has a positive impact on their confidence, and helps them to learn essential social skills like taking turns and listening to others.  We often have parents saying how Monkey Music has helped prepare their children for starting nursery and school.

 

Sharing music is great fun, and children learn best when they are enjoying themselves!

 

 

Parents and Carers love Monkey Music classes too!

 

At Monkey Music in Putney, Barnes and Fulham, we are very keen for our grown ups to have lots of fun too!  Music is good for children because music is good for everyone!   In our interactive classes our parents and carers love to join in singing and playing with their little ones. It’s a great chance for parents to spend special time together with their child without the distraction of everyday life.  Children are particularly responsive when sharing music with their carer, it’s a great way to develop reciprocal communication.  We are so pleased that our class experience extends beyond the class with songs and rhymes that can be shared at home with parents, siblings, grandparents and friends.

One of the lovely things about the classes is that over the years we’ve seen lots of grown ups and little ones making  lasting friendships;  all our venues in Putney, Barnes and Fulham have great cafes nearby, perfect for a catch up before or after class!

How can I find out more?

Do just get in touch!  We’d love to explain more about our classes and how wonderful music is to share with your little one.  Better still, come along for a complimentary class and see for yourself!  We’d be delighted to see you and introduce you to our team, our teachers and to other local mums, dads and carers and babies and toddlers in the Fulham, Putney and Barnes area.  We hope to meet you soon!
