Welcome to our classes

Hello! I'm Anna and I am thrilled to be running Monkey Music classes for babies and toddlers across Potters Bar, Enfield and Cheshunt. As a Monkey Music mum, I've had first-hand experience of the award-winning Monkey Music curriculum and have seen my son flourish in this fun, engaging and stimulating environment. Come along and see for yourself!

My Monkey Music journey began shortly after we had moved in to the Enfield area and I was searching for baby classes that I could take my son Samuel along to. From a young age he had always responded so positively to different musical sounds. Music and drama played a central role in my childhood; playing the flute in my local youth orchestra, singing in my local choir and performing in amateur theatre productions. As such, I was very keen to nurture Samuel's interest in music and find a baby music class that I could take him to. We attended our first complimentary Rock'n'Roll class at Monkey Music and both he and I were immediately captivated. The magical sounds, abundance of original catchy songs and the unique, lightly structured progressive curriculum quickly made this class the highlight of our week!

The Monkey Music age-specific curriculum begins with Rock'n'Roll which is a gentle and soothing introduction to music where babies are mesmerised by the enchanthing musical sounds and sensory props and our grown-ups get to experience a lovely bonding time with their little ones. Once your child is on the move they will graduate to the faster paced Heigh-Ho class where they will experience colourful props and start to develop their language skills and a feel for the steady beat through action songs. At the age of two, children join our Jiggety-Jig classes where their musical development is entwined with story-telling and role play songs encouraging them to use their imagination in a musical setting. Children continue to be exposed to a range of musical instruments exploring timbre, pitch and tempo. The final stage of the curriculum is Ding-Dong. In this class, children learn to read and compose music whilst also learning about the different instruments of the orchestra.

Our classes are perfectly paced and deliberately small in size so that each child has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Through all stages of the curriculum, the structure of our class remains the same and each stage has its own signature class song which provides familiarity for your children and supports the progressive nature of the curriculum. All children will have the opportunity to make music with their own set of instruments and these are tailored to each of our age-specific classes. Classes are currently running in Forty Hill, Bush Hill Park, Potters Bar and Goffs Oak with future classes opening to cover the areas of the Cheshunt, Waltham Abbey, Broxbourne and Hertford Heath.

It has been amazing to watch Samuel develop socially, physically and musically at his Monkey Music classes and I am privileged to now be running classes in the local community and have the opportunity to share such precious time with you you and your little ones. I look forward to welcoming your family and meeting you at class very soon!

Anna Miles

Hi i'm Anna, I grew up playing the flute and absolutely love to sing! I first discovered the magic of Monkey Music when I was searching for a baby music class to take my son to. I now have the pleasure of delivering the award-winning Monkey Music curricula to other local families. 

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.
