Music has always played a big part in my life, I play daily and compose my own music. I worked at Sony Music previously and also toured the UK performing in my own band for over 10 years. I am deeply passionate about being part of a team that is delivering music lessons to young children, including my own.Since April 2009 I've had the great pleasure of collaborating with Monkey Music in Hampstead and Notting Hill & we share expertise, resources and teachers to bring you the highest quality in pre-school musical education. I am joined by a wonderful team of skilled and highly inspiring Monkey Music teachers and we very much look forward to welcoming you at one of my nearby venues. All of our teachers love running their classes and are passionate about introducing music into the lives of babies, toddlers and children in a way that makes listening, playing and dancing to music an exciting event that the children want to enjoy when they’re at home as well as in class. Music is an important first line of communication between adults and children and we enjoy introducing you and your children to fun new ways of playing and learning together. Many of the activities that we introduce in class can be enjoyed at home too and we will often send you home with ideas for new games and activities. We pride ourselves on providing a music class that toddlers and babies will thrive in.
The progressive nature of the curriculum means that families often stay with us for several years. We often meet them as little babies in Rock’n’Roll when they are just starting to explore new sights and sounds and starting to track objects and instruments, respond to exciting sounds and learning about object permanence. We then have the privilege of mentoring their musical development sometimes right up until our Ding-Dong level for 3 and 4 year-olds, where they start to be able to recognise the different sections of the orchestra and are learning the basics of notation. It is very difficult to say goodbye at the last class, but we are lucky enough to see our little monkeys again for workshops or when they come back with their younger siblings. Monkey Music offers action-packed 30-minute weekly music classes for babies and toddlers in Hampstead, Primrose Hill, Belsize Park and the surrounding area. Monkey Music classes are fun, interactive, stimulating and support your child’s development. Each of the four levels of Monkey Music is designed around the interests and capabilities of the children’s specific age groups, so we have specific classes for babies from 3 months (12 weeks) to 9 or 10 months and the next level, Heigh-Ho is for 1 year olds and Jiggety-Jig for 2 year olds and 3 year olds. Classes combine traditional nursery rhymes and original Monkey Music songs. We use a wide variety of colourful props and musical teaching resources to create a lovely environment for fun and learning.
We have music groups in MaidaVale/St John’s Wood (NW8) Primrose Hill (NW1) and Marylebone (NW1). We look forward to meeting you and your little monkeys very soon!Read more...

"The teachers are properly trained, communication is excellent, and the venues are in well thought out spaces. Hands down the best value for money I spent for both my kids in a class"

The Monkey Team
I am trained professionally in all aspects of musical theatre. I really enjoy teaching Monkey Music and seeing the children's progress each week. I really believe that Monkey Music is a great way for children to start learning about music and about being in a classroom environment.
Lara de Belder
As a singer and actress I have a passion for lots of different musical styles, and I love to combine performance into my classes and make learning fun. My experience as a teacher and choral director also inspires a sense of structure and community within lessons.
I’m an actor by trade and graduated from Manchester School of Theatre in 2014 and Ive been teaching over 200 children a week since then. Music has always paid a huuge part in my life and on top of trumpet, singing and paino I'm now a bona fide expert on the maracas!
