Welcome to our classes

I am very excited to open Monkey Music's award winning classes for babies and toddlers in Ealing and Acton. While we cannot see each other face to face, our classes are currently only available to join online, but following the end this period, face to face classes will commence at our lovely locations in Ealing, W5; Acton, W3, Hanwell, W7 and West Ealing, W13. As a Monkey Music mum, I have experienced that an engaging musical environment can greatly contribute to a child's cognitive and sensory development – my children love it! As a musician and mother of two boys, I am devoted to delivering a magical, musical adventure for your little ones to thrive in. Our action packed classes are a great opportunity for your babies and toddlers to have fun while learning, singing and dancing.

Join the fun!

Babies and children love songs, rhythms and music and, like adults, greatly benefit from a musical environment. Our classes are set across four progressive stages, tailored specifically to the needs of babies, toddlers and pre-school children aged between 3 months and 4 years of age. Classes are intentionally 30 minutes long and children are grouped in small classes according to age. Each class is designed with original songs, as well as traditional nursery rhymes for everyone to join in the fun.

Rock’n’Roll - 3 months to rising 12 months

Music has a diverse positive effect on babies, encouraging their development both mentally and physically. Our Rock’n’Roll class can stimulate the pathways responsible for many skills, such as creativity and spatial intelligence. It is also a gentle bonding exercise for carer and child.

Heigh-Ho - from 12 months

With developing language skills, walking, and the ability to pay attention for longer, this age group are more engaged with music than infants. The up-beat and entertaining music in our Heigh-Ho class is taught at a fast pace to captivate the attention of the young audience. In this class, toddlers’ vocalisations will change from being monotone to including high and low notes. Rhythmically, they will often dance and play instruments with a strong sense of beat.

Jiggety-Jig - 2 + 3 year olds

At this age, children will begin to sing unaccompanied and create music without musical support. Our Jiggerty-Jig class will teach your child to hear and understand music when the sound is not physically present. It’s an opportunity for your toddler to have fun with their friends and develop a strong musical foundation for their future learning.

Ding-Dong - 3 + 4 year olds

At this age, children have begun to sing in tune and move in time to music. Our Ding-Dong class will teach your child to read music, sing with accurate pitch and play a wide range of rhythm instruments. But most importantly, have fun with the friends they have made over the last four years.

Award winning classes for everyone!

Established in 1993, Monkey Music has gained a reputation for standing out and has won numerous awards including Best National Pre-Schooler Development Activity, Best National Toddler Development Class, and Best London kids’ class. It’s a class loved by both children and carers; and as a huge Monkey Music fan, I have made just as many friendships as my children over the last couple of years. It’s an opportunity for children to listen to their teacher, make new friends and share precious time together. They are honing a whole host of new skills which support all aspects of their future development.

About Faye

Music is my passion and I have enjoyed playing and listening to music from a young age. I am classically trained in the piano, violin and voice and my appetite for performing flourished during my early years. I continued to study music throughout my education, including my degree, when I began a long career as a DJ in clubs across Central and West London and also started performing in various cover bands. Following further education in law and a long career in global construction, I am delighted to be able to bring Monkey Music to Ealing and Acton. Also from West London, I am very excited to offer classes in the area of which I grew up. I have two sons and attend Monkey Music with both children, who love the classes. I enjoy singing with them and teaching them how to play various instruments. My teaching style perfectly blends my personality with the entertaining and educational foundations of Monkey Music. I thrive in the fact that I will make a difference to children by supporting their early development while creating a fun Monkey Music franchise in Ealing.

The Monkey Team

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.
