I am a former early years teacher and mother of three with a passion for music and early years development.
As a teacher I taught in all years of primary school but specialised in Early Years teaching, covering nursery and reception. I found pleasure every day in watching children develop in all areas and become confident and excited learners. After having my first child I discovered the joy that comes with watching a baby develop and celebrating all of those little developmental milestones. I took my son to many baby groups but knew I had found something special when we went to our first Monkey Music class. The classes are not only energetic and fun but are also deeply rooted in child development and each class aims to develop children in three main areas: Social, Language and Physical. Not only that but they also have music at the heart of all lessons and activities.
When the opportunity arose to run Monkey Music classes, I didn’t have to think twice. I have always had a passion for music and singing, and feel very privileged to be able to bring the joy of music to children and their carers.
What do our classes offer?
Our youngest members can join our Rock ‘n’ Roll baby classes from 3 months. These classes offer a gentle introduction to Monkey Music and are a calm, engaging and nurturing experience for you and your baby. We use a selection of instruments, catchy songs and engaging props specifically chosen to stimulate your baby's senses. There is also plenty of opportunity for bonding with your baby and enjoying their smiles as they engage with other babies and listen for Monkey’s magical sounds.
At around 12 months old babies graduate and move on to our Heigh- Ho classes and following this will move on to Jiggety- Jig classes. At each stage children will enjoy a curriculum which is specifically designed for them and their level of development and packed with fun learning opportunities. They will enjoy a range of over 500 original songs, written with child development in mind. All classes include high quality props and instruments and most importantly lots of music, singing, movement and social interaction!
Monkey Music is now over 25 years old and a leading provider of baby and toddler music classes. The curriculum is regularly reviewed and updated to ensure that you are really getting the most out of the precious time spent with your child.
So what’s in it for you?
Monkey Music classes for my children and many others are a highlight of the week but they aren’t just all about the babies/children and their enjoyment. Spending a 30 minute session with your child each week in an environment where you are able to focus solely on them provides a powerful and magical bonding experience. Parents and grandparents often find that they enjoy the classes just as much as the children. Singing and playing music as a group is a wonderfully social activity. Children love seeing each other joining in with the activities and look forward to seeing each other every week!
Come and join us for a complimentary first class! We offer classes in Bicester, Bloxham, Chipping Norton, Kidlington and Wintey! I really look forward to meeting you soon!

“L absolutely loves the classes, she loves dancing along to the songs and it amazes me to see how much she has progressed from when we started to now with all the actions.Thanks for being a great teacher!
“Monkey music is definitely one of F's highlights of his week! I don’t think he's going to be able to contain himself when we can finally do it in person again!”
Thanks you so much for your class! I was so impressed with the pace, creative songs and opportunity for dance and movement as well as your enthusiasm and obvious warm relationship with all the children there.
As Nicola knows, Isaac is transfixed every week (and Mummy has rather a lot of fun too!!), It's the highlight of our week!
I found it quite emotional watching Mabel join in with so much of the content and learn some new music skills alongside others as there's little opportunity to do this in the current climate. Thank you so much!
We both absolutely love it. You are a fantastic teacher and engage so well with all the toddlers, Lara is fascinated by everything you do and sing (as well as monkey).
