We have both had the privilege of working as Primary Teachers in local Edinburgh Schools for over 20 years combined. During this time we have had experience teaching across all age groups, but found our real passion was in Early Years education due to its rewarding nature and the enthusiasm, fun and curiosity young children bring to the classroom. We are both very passionate about music and it naturally played a crucial role in the day-to-day running of our classrooms. We have seen first-hand, the pure joy, excitement and learning opportunities that singing, dancing and playing instruments can bring to children. It can lift the energy in the classroom, improve concentration, boost self-esteem and develop children’s creativity, imagination and self-expression.
Our motivation to become Monkey Music franchisees began back in 2019 when we experienced our first-ever Monkey Music class with our firstborn babies. We were both blown away by the magical experience and could not believe the impact that the weekly 30-minute music class had on them. They were mesmerized by the sounds of the instruments and captivated by the teacher and music. We both loved connecting with our babies through the power of music while seeing them develop a range of skills each week through the progressive curriculum. As new mums, it was also a wonderful way to meet other parents and make friends in a safe and nurturing environment. We both feel incredibly lucky to have found a career which combines our wealth of teaching experience with our love of music.
You can join Monkey Music at any time and we would LOVE to see you at a class near you! Our team of amazing, highly trained teachers run classes across Edinburgh. We have venues in Corstorphine, (EH12 8AY), Morningside (EH10 4DP) and Stockbridge (EH3 5BN).
Check out our timetable below for more details and to book your first FREE class! Following on from your first complimentary class you will be invited to book your place at our small regular weekly class where you and your little one will learn together each week with children of a similar age. You can choose to pay for your booking on a monthly basis and we also offer catch-up classes as we know life with a little one can be unpredictable.
Monkey Music is a good fit for children from newborn to 4 years old. We offer children and their parents or carers a safe and creative space to learn through different musical experiences. Our age-specific classes have been created with your child’s development in mind and we use our own original and catchy Monkey Music songs to support all aspects of development, including language development, physical development and social and emotional development.
Rock‘n’Roll – weekly baby classes for parents and carers with babies from 3 – 12 months. This is our first stage of weekly classes and we focus on gentle songs and fascinating sounds. Our little ones learn and develop through our magical sounds and the sound of your voice. Each class is led by a specially trained Monkey Music teacher who will engage you and your baby as you bond together.
Heigh-Ho – weekly toddler classes for parents and carers with toddlers from 12 months. The second stage of our Monkey Music classes with our little ones up on their feet being musical explorers! Our catchy songs and simple dances keep our toddlers entertained whilst they make music and have fun together. Repetition and ‘having a go’ are key at this stage and our toddlers love playing their instruments whilst dancing and singing along to their favourite Monkey Music songs, especially when they are trying to find where Monkey is Hiding!
Jiggety-Jig – weekly classes for parents and carers with toddlers who are 2 and 3 years old. In this third stage of our Monkey Music classes the children are beginning to interact more with each other whilst making friends. They still enjoy singing and dancing but are now also very confident playing their instruments in the Monkey Music Band. They learn how to make music as part of a group and how to compose their own music using their favourite sounds.
Ding-Dong – weekly classes for children aged 3 and 4 with their parents and carers. In our fourth and final stage of regular weekly classes, our little ones are ready to learn to read music! They understand what they hear and now it is time to learn what sounds and music looks like written down. We introduce this in a clever and simple way using some of the Kodaly method which Monkey has adapted to fit with his favourite songs and musical activities! During these classes, our children take the lead from their parents or carers who enjoy watching their children grow in confidence through singing solos and having fun making Monkey Music together!

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.
