My passion for Monkey Music started when I took my son William to his first class. After a long search for baby music classes, I was impressed by the quality of the teaching at Monkey Music and to see William develop musically, socially and physically each week was amazing!. Our original songs and age specific classes really make this a winning formula.Read more...
Monkey Music offers award winning music classes suitable for babies from 3 months to young children of four years - we also welcome families from North Finchley, New Barnet, Totteridge, Arkley and the surrounding areas too! Our age specific, 30-minute classes are fun, educational and include a wide variety of musical activities, games, movement, singing and song. We use fascinating sounds and absorbing musical activities to encourage learning and our weekly class songs gives familiarity to ensure the children feel relaxed and at home during the class. Watching the babies and toddler's confidence grow week on week is a real highlight for me! At Monkey Music we have a great deal of resources that we use to make sure our classes are fun and unique. We have special percussion instruments, ranging from drums; which are a favourite of the toddlers to rain makers and wind chimes that totally captivate the babies with their magical sounds. Each child is able to touch and play with instruments creating their own music either individually or with another little monkey. We also use rhymes, puppets and visual props to captivate the babies and toddlers to ensure each song comes to life. Our pre- school children start to learn about the orchestra, rhythm, graphic notation and get to experience all the instruments too. It is truly amazing to see how the children grow and develop in confidence and the 'age specific' curricula is key to this. Grouped into small classes by age, we focus on the children's learning and developmental stages in a fun, friendly and safe environment. Babies and children are encouraged by the teacher and parents/carers to experiment with the instruments, props and explore the musical resources around them.
Along with Monkey and Mo we have a fabulous team of teachers here in Barnet, all of whom have a huge passion for musical learning and working with babies and young children. Class teachers are chosen for their natural ability to communicate, captivate and entertain babies, toddlers and their families. Our teachers have bags of energy and parents, carers, grandparents are encouraged to join in, to share some precious moments with their child. It's truly special to watch the parents and carers bond with the children through sharing different experiences each week. many parents/carers that I speak to say that it is the highlight of their child's week, but it is theirs too and we often see lots of friendships form which is another reason why Monkey Music is so special.
We would love you to come along and see for your yourself what an amazing musical learning journey your baby or child will go on. We offer music classes for babies and toddlers everyday of the week in High Barnet, New Barnet, Mill Hill, North Finchley & Whetstone so we hope that you will find a class to suit your baby or toddler.
We look forward to meeting you and your family soon. If you have any questions about our classes, feel free to contact the office and we will be happy to help you find the perfect music class for your baby or child.Read more...

The Monkey Team
Hi, I'm Amy and I have been teaching Monkey Music since 2014. I first found out about Monkey Music when my son was 12 wks and we were looking for a baby music class. Now I have the pleasure teaching our fabulous, award-winning music classes in and around Barnet. Magical, musical fun, I love it!
Hi, I'm Nikki & after experiencing Monkey Music with all three of my children, I decided to join the team in Barnet. I have a degree in the performing arts, grade 5 violin & a passion for child development. It amazes me each week how the children learn/grow plus they have great fun too!
I'm Ruth, a trained dancer, singer and actor. I've been teaching Monkey Music since 2009 and I absolutley love it! I marvel at how the children blossom and progress through the amazing curricula. Its half an hour to forget the outside world and escape with your child into a world of music!
