Whilst working as a Primary School Teacher I had the privilege of teaching some children who had attended Monkey Music. I was amazed at their confidence, listening skills and musical knowledge. I observed some classes and was inspired to open a Franchise. Monkey Music is the perfect way to combine my love of music and teaching.Read more...
As a qualified Primary School Teacher specialising in teaching The Early Years and Key Stage One I have always been passionate about planning fun, practical and inspiring lessons and teaching in a way that entertains and captures the attention of very young children. Monkey Music provides a progressive, educational and fun four stage curricula with classes which are individually designed for each age group. The classes start with our youngest Babies at 3 months and progress through to our oldest Pre-School Children at 4 years. By attending Monkey Music classes our Babies, Toddlers and Pre-School Children gain a sound musical knowledge as we cover such areas as musical sequences, pitch, tempo, rhythm, melody and written notation. As well as developing important musical skills our Babies, Toddlers and Pre-School Children are meeting and interacting with new friends so they are developing socially too. At Monkey Music weekly classes we sing original and traditional songs which aid language development and the musical activities that we offer encourage an active use of the imagination. By playing hand help percussion instruments and moving in such ways as walking, marching and jumping in response to music our Babies, Toddlers and Pre-School Children are developing their fine and gross motor physical skills too. Each weekly Monkey Music class offers 30 minutes where an adult and their Baby or Chikd can bond and learn together in a nurturing, exciting, fun and stimulating environment. This special time plays an important part in the future emotional and intellectual development of each Baby, Toddler and Pre-School Child. I truly believe that Monkey Music understands how young children learn best and really hope that you are able to try it for yourselves soon. Monkey Music Ely & Cambridge currently run weekly classes at venues in Ely and Histon. During a Rock'n'Roll class we encorage our Babies to track musical sounds, reach out for, grasp and play our specially chosen percussion instruments which are perfect for tiny hands. At Heigh-Ho our energetic and excitable Toddlers love to be up on their feet and exploring the space around them. We use percussion instruments, the drum and beater is a favourite, as we try and kep the musical beat. At Jiggety-Jig we enjoy using hoops and the parachute alongside our percussion instruments and we really encourage the Children to share and work together as a team. Our Ding-Dong Children are getting ready for school and I never fail to be amazed at how clever they are. They listen to and learn facts about the different families of the orchestra, confidently sing solos, play rhythms of crotchets, quavers and rests on percussion instruments and more. Book your first FREE class today to experience the magic of Monkey Music. As well as weekly Monkey Music classes Monkey Music Ely & Cambridge also offer Monkey Music Birthday Parties and run Holiday Workshops 3 times a year at Christmas, Easter and during the Summer. Please do get in touch to find out more.Read more...
