Your Frequently Asked Questions answered!

What do the classes involve?

Monkey Music is an interactive award winning musical curriculum. Classes are small and tailor-made for babies and young children who are grouped according to their age. Each child is accompanied by their carer. Little monkeys sing, dance and play musical instruments. Big monkeys join in the fun too!

Can babies relate to music at such a young age?

The ear is the first organ to develop fully in the womb. From five months, an unborn baby can hear the world around them. Early exposure to music encourages babies to develop their musical ear which supports all aspects of early learning and development.
Just as language skills are developed early in life, so is musical talent. Regardless of the level of music aptitude with which children are born, they must have formal and informal experiences in music to maintain that level of potential.

Are the classes different for each age group?

Yes. Our curriculum is structured and progressive.
Rock ’n’Roll: from 3 months

Heigh-Ho: from 12 months

Jiggety-Jig: 2 + 3 year olds

Ding-Dong: 3 + 4 year olds

Are all the teachers musically trained?

All Monkey music teachers are specifically trained on delivering the Monkey Music curriculum. Many of them are professional musicians and teachers.

How long is a class?

Half an hour. Each 30 minute class is a significant step in our progressive curricula. Classes are carefully planned to maximise the attention span of a very young child so that they learn from sharing a rewarding, enjoyable and worthwhile experience.

At what age can my child start Monkey music?

From 3 months old.

Can I try a class before I sign up to a course?

Yes. You and your child are invited along for a free complimentary class when making an initial booking enquiry.

How much does a class cost?

Please ask at your local Monkey Music Office.

Do I have to pay a term in advance?

Yes. After your first complimentary class you reserve your place and are invoiced pro rata for the remaining classes in the term. Families who attend our classes will often bond with their teacher and other members of their group. In order to reserve places so that everyone can be together we facilitate a termly booking system. This also encourages our families to attend regularly so that everyone learns new skills at the same pace.

How many children are in a class?
