I’ve lived in Eltham for almost 20 years and spent 7 years taking my children to Monkey Music classes close by . After 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 instead.
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!
We run classes on almost every day of the week and try to offer customers a 'catch-up' session if classes are missed due to illness, so you won't miss out.
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. It's a very busy age! 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 and around Eltham, New Eltham, Welling and Shooters Hill.

"Thank you for your fantastic sessions, we are so glad to have found you!...L is loving it! "
"Thank you so much! She recognised you, she waved at you! If she lost focus, being able to say 'what’s Kerry doing?' meant something to her. How amazing is that!"
"It's the highlight of the week and the best children's activity I've done in my 5 years of being a Mum. When they're not at classes they are often doing monkey music role play games at home."
"Great class! Kerry is brilliant and gets the kids engaged with the class. My daughter looks forward to going each week"
Thank you so much for our Monkey Music Class today - it was great!! R had the biggest smile when she saw you and the Monkey Music song came on. We’re both looking forward to next week!
We absolutely loved the session. I still know all the words to the familiar songs [and] was really nice for R, and F loved joining in too. Will definitely be signing up to next term. Thank you.
