Monkey Music Blackheath and Greenwich enjoys an excellent reputation in the local area and was one of the first pre-school children’s music activities of its kind. Our music classes have offered a consistently high quality musical experience to young children since 1997.
Both the founder, Angie Coates and Rebecca Maskell attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. They have nine children between them!
Since then it has gone from strength to strength without compromising our high standards.
Monkey Music isn’t just about singing songs and dancing. Thought goes into the presentation of songs and activities with the inevitable benefits of speech development as well as vital listening skills, which can only assist the children in the school years ahead. Singing, and feeling confident to sing is a joy often lost as we grow older and become more inhibited, so our relaxed approach can also benefit the carers that accompany the children to the classes!
So Why Monkey Music?
Monkey Music’s teachers in Blackheath and Greenwich undergo a rigorous training procedure before embarking on their own classes. All have a sound musical background as well as bringing their own individual skills to the classes enabling them to easily communicate to very young babies of three months up to pre-school children of four years. Jo Napthine and Tracy Jones aka TJ, both actresses with beautiful voices, join me in presenting high quality, value for money classes in the local area.
Monkey Music provides excellent resources to support the material such as high quality percussion instruments – not toys, which provide appealing and clear sounds which young children can easily appreciate and comfortably listen to. Visually stimulating props bring alive the songs to make learning fun and stimulating.
During our Monkey Music classes in Blackheath and Greenwich we sing original songs as well as traditional nursery rhymes in four separate classes according to their age in order for the children to benefit and learn as much as possible from the experience.
Monkey Music is Fun For All
Joining a pre-school music class like Monkey Music is much more than a 30 minute weekly dose of singing along. Parents, grandparents, nannies and child minders enjoy the classes just as much as the children and often make lifelong friends in the process.
So What’s Next?
All you have to do now is give us a try! We offer a free complimentary class to whet your appetite and give you the opportunity to see what we have to offer. If you enrol without a free complimentary session, your £18 membership is reduced to just £1! Word of mouth is a powerful tool and most new babies and pre-school children attend our classes because it has been recommended by a friend. As parents ourselves and Monkey Music teachers we do our best to offer fun quality music classes and an exciting learning experience come rain come shine!

"The class and TJ are fantastic, and Sophia enjoyed every minute since she was a baby. Having attended a number of different music classes, I think this is the best one."
"I always look forward to Monkey Music. I think you have a fantastic talent. Without your charisma and energy, I mean without you Rebecca, it wouldn't be the same."
"My nanny mentioned that you were impressed with Chloe playing along in time today. I would have to credit that to your excellent tuition. I strongly believe that her love of music is down to your classes."
"I just don't know how on earth we did not try this before, I absolutely love it. We were made to feel very welcome and Rebecca is an excellent teacher. It is the best music class I have seen for my daughter."
"Some of my peers felt that Monkey Music was too much of a financial commitment. I can honestly say it was one of the soundest decisions I have made."
"Whilst both my boys are like chalk and cheese they have both loved every minute of Monkey Music. This was the only activity which made my baby son stop screaming for a blissful 30 minutes of the day!"
