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!

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!
