FUN FOR EVERYONE
Trusted by parents since 1992, there are 4-stages of classes, tailored specifically to the needs of babies, toddlers and pre-school children between 3 months and 4 years of age. Our classes are designed to help develop language, physical and social skills, all through wonderful musical activities and live singing.
Research has shown that early exposure to music supports a child in almost all areas of development. At Monkey Music we believe that it’s important for babies and small children to be immersed in making music in a fun, exciting and structured environment. We have a wonderful, innovative and unique 4-stage program, written by professional musicians within the Early Years Foundation Stages framework. Whilst experiencing musical concepts such as pulse, rhythm, pitch, tempo and dynamics, our beautifully presented classes lay the foundations for future learning – all whilst having lots of fun!
Monkey Music has won many awards and has gained a reputation for high standards and uniqueness. We sing many original songs, as well as lots of traditional nursery rhymes for everyone to sing-a-long to.
Classes are 30 minutes long, and are jam-packed with musical activities and learning opportunities. Our teachers pour their hearts into preparing well structured classes, wowing the children and grown-ups with their wonderful singing voices, sound musical approach and professional delivery.
For babies from 3 months
Babies are born to love music! Music is invaluable to healthy development and has a tremendous effect on babies. Our baby classes are gentle, calm and full of wonder. Focusing on bonding and confidence, carers interact with their baby enjoying pulse based musical activities, fascinating sounds and sensory moments. Our classes are the perfect way to share precious time together, and to meet other babies and carers who live in your area.
For toddlers from 12 months
A more up-beat curriculum for a ‘busy’ age group that are raring to go! Heigh-Ho classes are full of action songs to develop co-ordination, spatial awareness and to enjoy the ‘beat’ together. We also focus on listening skills and language development, making lots of sounds together. Colourful props capture the imagination and hold concentration, and there are lots of opportunities to play percussion instruments.
For 2 + 3 year olds
Jiggety-Jig children are really starting to express themselves through music making, singing and dancing. They are encouraged to work a little more independently in this class, and through absorbing activities further develop social and language skills. These classes are slightly slower in pace to develop concentration. Musically, the children are starting to keep a steady beat and further explore rhythm, pitch, tempo and dynamics.
Ding Dong - not currently on offer, but please email us so we can help you find a class
For 3 + 4 year olds
Building on the foundations laid in Jiggety-Jig, Ding-Dong children are ready to progress their musical learning further and start to recognise graphics depicting sounds and rhythm notation. They are introduced to members of the orchestra with the opportunity to touch and play various instruments. From here they are all set for a wonderful musical future.
I am a passionate musician and performer, so when I became a mother I was keen to share a special musical experience with my children. I discovered Monkey Music and was hugely impressed with the quality of teaching, resources and the curricula. I became a Monkey Music teacher over 8 years ago and am now thrilled to be a franchisee. As well as extensive training in music, dance and drama, more recently I also gained an early childhood music teaching qualification with the British Kodaly Academy, covering music education from 0-7 years.Read more...

The Monkey Team
I absolutely love singing and have been performing since I was 4 years old.
I am thrilled to be a Monkey Music teacher, and to have the privilege of being a part of each child’s development through their learning and enjoyment of music.
I grew up immersed in music and dance playing both the piano and clarinet, singing in choirs and attending the Royal Ballet School. I have a Drama degree and an early years music teaching qualification from the British Kodaly Academy. I love teaching Monkey Music and have been doing so for 9 years.
