Why Monkey Music classes are unique
Having been involved in music education for over 25 years, I know that music is fundamental to a pre-school aged child’s development. It’s such a fun way to learn!
As a music teacher myself, when I had my first baby, I knew that a baby and toddler music class was the most important class for him to attend. Children are natural, instinctive music makers, I wanted to find an activity that was tailored to his developmental needs and to introduce music in a fun and interactive way. Monkey Music fitted the bill perfectly. Many years on, I still love our classes, they remain fresh and exciting with quality music at the heart.
For babies from 3mths to pre-school children up to four years, our proven and progressive, age appropriate musical curricula has been carefully honed over 25 years. Children learn best when they are captivated, engaged and enjoying themselves. With children grouped in small classes according to age, each class is carefully structured, perfectly pitched, and jam packed with learning opportunities, catchy music, great resources, the finest percussion instruments, movement and dance activities and lots of energy and fun!
Our classes are very deliberately only 30 minutes long. We cover a lot in that period of time, and we know that any longer can be overwhelming for growing brains that are taking in so many new things.
Parents and Carers love Monkey Music classes too!
We know music is good for babies and children, but it's good for grown ups too! Our interactive classes are a great opportunity for parents to share precious time together with their child without the distraction of everyday life. Children are particularly responsive when sharing music with their carer, it’s a great way to develop reciprocal communication. One of the lovely things about the classes is the lasting friendships made over the years; all our venues in Putney, Barnes and Fulham have great cafes nearby, perfect for a catch up before or after class!

Music and child development
Research has found that exposure to music early in life supports a child in almost all areas of development. Children who attend a music class show improved memory, they smile more and develop better communication skills. Music can help your child reach their full potential, and it’s such a brilliant way to learn so many different important skills. We often have parents saying how Monkey Music has helped prepare their children for starting nursery and school.
Our teachers are all actresses, performers and musicians, with boundless vitality and enthusiasm. Mostly parents themselves, they all adore babies and young children, and all bring something special and unique to their classes. You can find out more about our teachers below.Read more...
