Hello from Monkey Music! I'm Kerry and I'm delighted to bring Monkey Music to Eltham and the surrounding areas. With more than 20 years' experience in the music industry, I can't wait to meet you and your child to show you how much fun music can be when you're a baby or toddler!Read more...
I’ve lived in Eltham for more than 15 years and have taken both my children to Monkey Music classes close by. After spending 18 years managing the classical recording schedules of EMI and Warner Classics, I realised it was time to start nurturing some of our younger budding musicians!
Coming to Monkey Music is a fabulous way to have fun with your baby or toddler while knowing everything they are doing, seeing and hearing will aid their development. Music plays such an important role in the early development of a child. Babies were born to love music after all! Our interactive classes and quality instruments engage the children in music-making in a fun and sociable environment. They absorb so much without even realising they are learning!
As parents we naturally use music to sooth and calm our children, and research has shown that music can help with all areas of child development. Our baby and toddler music classes contain action songs and rhymes to build language and numerical skills; playing along with hand-held instruments develops fine motor skills and co-ordination, and movement works on spatial awareness. Our age-specific classes mean that your child is always experiencing a class appropriate for their development and enjoyment.
Rock’n’Roll (for babies from 3 months) Babies spend quality time with their carers learning to make sounds, moving their bodies in time to the music and developing their fine motor skills and co-ordination, whilst giving both adult and child some valuable social time! Our Magic Sounds and colourful props and puppets will captivate and delight our youngest little monkeys. And grown-ups can be confident that everything is safe for their babies to use as we make sure everything is cleaned after each use.
Heigh-Ho (for toddlers from 12 months) By the time your little explorers reach their first birthday they will be looking for something more upbeat and fast-paced. Learning how to respond to the music and then how to copy and practise what they hear, all the while practising their fine motor skills. Our themed classes, interactive songs and fabulous percussion instruments are sure to grab their attention while helping to develop self-discipline and listening skills.
Jiggety-Jig (2 & 3 year olds). By now, your little ones are likely to be more independent and want to play for themselves! We develop their sense of rhythm through dancing and singing in the class, playing with the percussion instruments and even composing for themselves. They learn important lessons about boundaries, sharing and the social skills required for nursery or pre-school.
Pre-school 3 & 4 year olds love our Ding-Dong classes. Fine tuning their ears to hear and understand musical patterns, using their eyes to recognise written music and growing their knowledge by learning about instruments of the orchestra. Often children are also at nursery or pre-school and we compliment all they are experiencing there by following the Early Years Foundation stages in our progressive curriculum.
Monkey Music Eltham operates in Eltham, Royal Arsenal Riverside in Woolwich, Welling, Shooters Hill and around New Eltham, Mottingham and Sidcup.
