Ealing and Acton
As a singer and a Mother, I'm passionate about giving babies and young children the opportunity to experience live music making from an early age. I'm delighted to be teaching classes in Ealing and Acton. Your first class is complimentary so why not book today and come and see us soon!Read more...
I discovered Monkey Music when I was looking for music classes to take my own baby daughter to whilst I was on maternity leave. As a musician, I was keen to find something that incorporated key musical elements whilst also being enjoyable for my daughter. I was immediately impressed by the musical content of the classes we attended. And seeing the delight on my daughter’s face each week when we she recognised her favourite Monkey songs quickly made it the highlight of our week! When the opportunity arose for me to take on my own Monkey Music franchise, I realised I had found the perfect way to combine my passion for music and singing, with my love of babies and interest in the important role that music can play in child development.
Monkey Music classes are tailored around a proven and progressive curriculum for babies from as young as 3 months. Even in our early Rock’n’Roll classes, babies are introduced to fundamental musical elements such as pitch, pulse, dynamics, rhythm and tempo. By introducing these elements into their sound world early on, we are helping to nurture a lifetime of interest in music. As our babies and toddlers move up to our Heigh-Ho and Jiggety-Jig classes, they build on the key elements learned in Rock’n’Roll and we introduce more age appropriate instruments, as well as developing key social skills to help prepare them for nursery and eventually school.
Above all, Monkey Music classes are fun as we know that babies and children learn through play! Each class is characterised by live singing, a set of beautifully crafted percussion instruments for each individual child to explore, and a combination of both original songs as well as well-loved nursery rhymes for our children and carers to enjoy singing together in class and during the week at home. And of course no class is complete without the appearance of Monkey and Mo!
As a Mum myself, I also fully understand that babies and toddlers have their own individual routines and agendas! At Monkey Music, we are always guided primarily by the needs of the babies and children, and what they and their carers feel comfortable with. In Rock’n’Roll particularly, young babies are welcome to be fed, changed or just cuddled at any time. They’ll still be taking in an enormous amount by being rocked gently to the beat of the music.
I am a trained classical singer, and I have performed as a soloist with many of London’s leading chamber choirs, and feature on over 20 commercial recordings. I continue to give regular live performances (when I’m not busy teaching Monkey Music or being a Mum!)
I look forward to welcoming you to one of our classes very soon!

"I absolutely love Monkey Music. The songs and activities really stimulate my 6 month old and her face lights up as she recognises each tune and the other babies! Definitely one of the highlights of our week!"
"From the moment the chime is rung the babies are enthralled. I love watching the wonder in my daughter’s eye as she discovers new instruments and music. The pace of the class is just right - we both love it!"
