Welcome to our classes

Hi, I'm Sally and I'm very happy to be running Monkey Music classes online! After loving taking my daughters to classes as babies and toddlers, it's so wonderful to be able to bring the magic to you! Monkey Music at Home promises to bring the same wonderful songs, music and fun to you at home during lockdown in live classes every week - book now to join us!

During this strange and unsettling time, if you're anything like me, you're looking for new and exciting ways to entertain your little ones while you stay safe, staying at home, perhaps in isolation. I'm so pleased to be able to provide you with an opportunity not only to share some precious time with your little one, watching them engage in the music of our classes, but also to have some live interaction with me, and other mummies and daddies for 30 minutes - a bit of escapism from all the craziness of COVID-19. It's so important during this time to keep our minds and bodies both physicially and mentally active and Monkey Music at Home promises to bring you all of this and more!

Monkey Music classes run a progressive curriculum in 4 different age categories so are built specifically for a baby or child’s development needs at that stage of their life. Most importantly, they are great fun for both you and your child! There are lots of opportunities for bonding with your little one as well as singing, movement and making music. The curriculum has been developed working closely with experts in education and child pschology, and the songs we sing are all original, written by the team at Monkey Music, with some recognisable nursery rhymes thrown in every now and then for good measure. If you're anything like me, you'll learn to love the Monkey Music songs and look forward to singing them with your little ones every week.

I have always been passionate about music and singing so I was keen to take my two daughters to Monkey Music classes when they were babies. It quickly became the highlight of our week so I jumped at the chance to launch a franchise and bring the joy of the classes to High Wycombe and Aylesbury! My eldest daughter has attended the entire curriculum, currently attending Ding Dong classes, and it’s been amazing to see how music plays a role in all aspects of her development; social, language and physical.

I have sung in various choirs for most of my life including the City of London Choir, and perform in amateur musical productions, having recently played the Narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, and Mother Superior in Sister Act. This, combined with a keen interest in child development makes being a Monkey Music teacher a dream career!

Thanks for [email protected] today! We are new to Monkey Music and Benjamin loved it! It was such a nice way to celebrate him being 10 months old today!

We’ve really enjoyed Sally’s online Monkey Music sessions! The personal touch of singing to our babies by name makes them really special and we love the variety of musical instruments.

Sophie, Mum of Azalea, 5 months

Our little one who’s just turned 3 absolutely loves your online Monkey Music sessions! It’s so good to be able to still do your class whilst at home. I thoroughly recommend Sally's classes!

Sally Williamson

Hi I'm Sally and I'm excited to be teaching the first classes in High Wycombe, Princes Risborough and Wendover.

Singing has been my passion ever since I can remember, having sung in choirs, a band, and taken part in musicals, so to find a job where I can sing is simply a dream come true!

What do the classes involve? Monkey Music is an interactive award winning musical curriculum. Classes are small and tailor-made for babies and young children who are grouped according to their age. Each child is accompanied by their carer. Little monkeys sing, dance and play musical instruments. Big monkeys join in the fun too!
Can babies relate to music at such a young age? The ear is the first organ to develop fully in the womb. From five months, an unborn baby can hear the world around them. Early exposure to music encourages babies to develop their musical ear which supports all aspects of early learning and development. 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.
Are the classes different for each age group? Yes. Our curriculum is structured and progressive. Rock’n'Roll: from 3 months Heigh-Ho: from 12 months Jiggety-Jig: 2 + 3 year olds Ding-Dong: 3 + 4 year olds
Are all the teachers musically trained? All Monkey music teachers are specifically trained on delivering the Monkey Music curriculum. Many of them are professional musicians and teachers.
How long is a class? Half an hour. Each 30 minute class is a significant step in our progressive curricula. Classes are carefully planned to maximise the attention span of a very young child so that they learn from sharing a rewarding, enjoyable and worthwhile experience.
At what age can my child start Monkey Music? From 3 months old.
Can I try a class before I sign up to a course? Yes. You and your child are invited along for a free complimentary class when making an initial booking enquiry.
How much does a class cost? Please ask at your local Monkey Music Office.
Do I have to pay a term in advance? Yes. After your first complimentary class you reserve your place and are invoiced pro rata for the remaining classes in the term. Families who attend our classes will often bond with their teacher and other members of their group. In order to reserve places so that everyone can be together we facilitate a termly booking system. This also encourages our families to attend regularly so that everyone learns new skills at the same pace.
How many children are in a class? Maximum 15
Do classes just run during term time? Regular classes run during term time. Many areas also run seasonal Holiday Workshops during school holidays.
What happens at a Monkey Music Birthday Party? See More Fun on the main website.
How do I become a Monkey Music franchisee? For more details, please click here
Where can I buy Monkey Music merchandise? Please click here.
Why pay a membership fee? When enrolling in Monkey Music for the first time, a child becomes a member of the Little Monkey Club. New members receive a Welcome Pack, including a Monkey Music T-shirt and beautiful sticker pack as well as access to our online club which supports the child in their learning experience at Monkey Music. The membership fee is payable when registering each child in regular weekly classes at Monkey Music and we offer a discount to siblings who join at any stage. Siblings receive their own welcome pack and T-shirt to wear to class. Ask your local classes for more details.
Is it OK for me to take photos or video in class? No, we politely request that you refrain from taking photos or videos at class.
Can I opt out of the membership fee? No, our online club is designed to support the learning experience of children at our regular classes.
Can I bring a sibling? Yes! We offer discounts for siblings, ask your local classes for more details.
Do I have to sing along? We love it when our customers join in and your children benefit from hearing the sound of a familiar voice, no matter how good or bad!
Do I have to be musical? No! Our teachers will make you feel welcome whatever your musical ability.
Why don’t you offer drop-in classes? We value musical education as a fundamental part of early development, and as such our regular weekly classes are progressive to maximise the learning potential of each child.
Can I bring my newborn too? Yes! Newborn babies are welcome in our classes, please speak to your local classes for more information.
What do I need to bring with me? Everything you need to enjoy our classes is provided by the teacher.
What if I can’t make my usual class? You are welcome to catch up with any classes that you miss. Speak to your local classes to book a catch up class.
What makes Monkey Music classes so special? Monkey Music classes are considered a leading light in pre-school education. Come along for a free class to see for yourself what make Monkey Music classes the highlight of the week for so many families across the UK!
Why is Monkey Music more expensive than the other music groups around? Monkey Music has been established for over 25 years and is proud to have a rich musical heritage. We offer a unique and progressive learning experience for your child, which is supported by over 500 original songs and musical activities. Our talented teachers are carefully chosen and trained to offer the highest standard of pre-school music education.
Why are Monkey Music classes 30 minutes long? Our classes have been honed and developed over 25 years and are designed to fully captivate babies and young children for the duration. The very interactive nature of every class means that our little monkeys need to rest again after 30 minutes of magical music making!
What do you expect of the children, do they have to sit down the whole time? Each class is carefully structured and formatted so that every child and carer is encouraged to join in with the fun. Classes are paced according to each age group with the opportunity for little ones to be up on their feet during ‘Time to Move’ and sitting with their carers during ‘Time to Play’ and ‘Time to Sleep’. Most children quickly learn what is happening next and Monkey helps them with friendly encouragement!
Do you offer ‘mixed age’ classes? Because of the progressive nature of our curricula which is age specific, we do not offer regular weekly mixed classes. However, during the holidays, many of our teachers offer mixed age holiday workshops.
