Welcome to our classes

My name is Jayne and I am SO excited to be offering online Monkey Music class sessions. We have launched [email protected] so we can share precious time with you all online! Our classes have been suspended in our venues in Chelsea, Belgravia, Gloucester Road and Pimlico and I am thrilled to be able to bring our classes to life online!

During the Coronavirus outbreak lockdown at Monkey Music we are providing music class sessions online for babies, toddlers and small children starting at 3months up to 4 years old.

What we are doing in our online music class sessions at Monkey Music

I am delighted to say that our four stage, age specific curricula is easily delivered and adapted to our online sessions (even for our tiny babies at 3months!) It’s so much fun and the feedback has been overwhelming. Lots of our families are telling us how Monkey Music is a real lifeline to them at this difficult time and of course it is wonderful to feel connected to all the other families that join our classes.

What you will see

My passion for music began early, I am a classically trained, professional violinist and I have dedicated the last 18 years of my life to passing on my knowledge to all our wonderful families.

I have a real love of creating and sourcing magical props that have the wow factor to accompany the themes of our classes, there’s often a gasp of delight from everyone as they are revealed and this has not changed online I am delighted to be able to say!

Expect lots of giggles, laughter and learning (for the grown-ups too!) as the babies and children are mesmerised by gorgeous puppets, sensory activities, hand crafted props, fascinating sounds and absorbing activities, specialist small hands percussion, dance and movement, magical bubbles and lots more! 

Our age specific curricula and our online class sessions at Monkey Music.

Rock’n’Roll babies from 3 months

Heigh-Ho Toddlers from 12 months

Jiggety-Jig 2&3 year olds

Ding-Dong 3&4 year olds

At Monkey Music babies and small children are divided into age specific classes from 3 months all the way up to 4 years old, supporting each stage of learning and development as a little musician as they journey through the Monkey Music curricula. Many of our families stay at Monkey Music throughout the course of all their children’s pre-school years and I am so proud to have built up a reputation as the ‘must do’ activity with thousands of our lovely local families.

Choosing the right session online for you

We have time slots to suit everyone and if you have siblings don’t worry they can join in the fun too! the more the merrier, it’s absolutely amazing to see the whole family (and your pets!) online all making music together.

Screen time for your little one

‘It was just as if you were actually in the room, my son was mesmerized throughout, I cannot thank you enough, he copied all the actions and loved seeing his friends online too!’

Does it work for my tiny baby?

Our Rock’n’Roll curriculum (from 3 months) is focused on the 3 key areas of social, physical and language development and from our online experience we have found that lots of babies are completely mesmerized both by the sounds they hear (babies hearing is fully developed at 3 months old) and by what they see too. BUT this works equally well if you choose to lie your baby down away from screen time as our sessions are very centred around you and how to help you play and teach your little one through music. It’s a great way to connect and see other parents too who are coping with being at home too!

How to book

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? Maximum 15
Do classes just run during term time? Regular classes run during term time. Many areas also run seasonal Holiday Workshops during school holidays.
What happens at a Monkey Music Birthday Party? See More Fun on the main website.
How do I become a Monkey Music franchisee? For more details, please click here
Where can I buy Monkey Music merchandise? Please click here.
Why pay a membership fee? When enrolling in Monkey Music for the first time, a child becomes a member of the Little Monkey Club. New members receive a Welcome Pack, including a Monkey Music T-shirt and beautiful sticker pack as well as access to our online club which supports the child in their learning experience at Monkey Music. The membership fee is payable when registering each child in regular weekly classes at Monkey Music and we offer a discount to siblings who join at any stage. Siblings receive their own welcome pack and T-shirt to wear to class. Ask your local classes for more details.
Is it OK for me to take photos or video in class? No, we politely request that you refrain from taking photos or videos at class.
Can I opt out of the membership fee? No, our online club is designed to support the learning experience of children at our regular classes.
Can I bring a sibling? Yes! We offer discounts for siblings, ask your local classes for more details.
Do I have to sing along? We love it when our customers join in and your children benefit from hearing the sound of a familiar voice, no matter how good or bad!
Do I have to be musical? No! Our teachers will make you feel welcome whatever your musical ability.
Why don’t you offer drop-in classes? We value musical education as a fundamental part of early development, and as such our regular weekly classes are progressive to maximise the learning potential of each child.
Can I bring my newborn too? Yes! Newborn babies are welcome in our classes, please speak to your local classes for more information.
What do I need to bring with me? Everything you need to enjoy our classes is provided by the teacher.
What if I can’t make my usual class? You are welcome to catch up with any classes that you miss. Speak to your local classes to book a catch up class.
What makes Monkey Music classes so special? Monkey Music classes are considered a leading light in pre-school education. Come along for a free class to see for yourself what make Monkey Music classes the highlight of the week for so many families across the UK!
Why is Monkey Music more expensive than the other music groups around? Monkey Music has been established for over 25 years and is proud to have a rich musical heritage. We offer a unique and progressive learning experience for your child, which is supported by over 500 original songs and musical activities. Our talented teachers are carefully chosen and trained to offer the highest standard of pre-school music education.
Why are Monkey Music classes 30 minutes long? Our classes have been honed and developed over 25 years and are designed to fully captivate babies and young children for the duration. The very interactive nature of every class means that our little monkeys need to rest again after 30 minutes of magical music making!
What do you expect of the children, do they have to sit down the whole time? Each class is carefully structured and formatted so that every child and carer is encouraged to join in with the fun. Classes are paced according to each age group with the opportunity for little ones to be up on their feet during ‘Time to Move’ and sitting with their carers during ‘Time to Play’ and ‘Time to Sleep’. Most children quickly learn what is happening next and Monkey helps them with friendly encouragement!
Do you offer ‘mixed age’ classes? Because of the progressive nature of our curricula which is age specific, we do not offer regular weekly mixed classes. However, during the holidays, many of our teachers offer mixed age holiday workshops.
