Monkey Music Baby & Toddler Classes Music Classes in Redditch & WorcesterBethan Craner 01527 62378 [email protected]
My name is Bethan Craner and I'm delighted to run Monkey Music Redditch and Worcester. Music has always been a big part of my life, some of my earliest memories are musical and when I started to play the trumpet I realised the joy music gave to me. At University I studied Early Years giving me knowledge of how young children learn.Read more...
At Monkey Music we know that choosing activities to do with your baby, toddler and pre-schooler is an important decision and finding quality sessions which keeps them engaged is important. We feel very privileged to be able to bring Monkey Music classes both in venues and live streamed online sessions into your home with our MonkeyMusic at Home session's. In both our venue classes and online session's your child will grow in confidence and build on new skills they develop week on week. Enjoy sharing precious time together each week.
Let me give you some more information about our music sessions and why I run Monkey Music in Redditch, Worcester, Evesham, Bromsgrove, Droitwich and Pershore area.
My name is Bethan, I first enjoyed Monkey Music while I was working as a nursery nurse. I was amazed by the confidence, language development and co-ordination skills the children developed because of Monkey Music. Each week the children sung original songs and played high quality real instruments, not toys, in every class. When I had my son in 2015 I looked into taking him to Monkey Music and found that there were no sessions in Worcestershire.
When I looked into Monkey Music one of the main reasons I choose to run sessions in Redditch, Worcester, Evesham, Droitwich and Pershore was the award winning four different curricula which are written for each age specific stage. I found that the original songs used in each of the curriculas where fun and catchy. The instruments where high quality and the teachers had musical knowledge at the heart of each and every session they delivered. I also liked that the child development knowledge and early years learning skills I had learnt at University would be put into action each week.
In all of our age-specific stages the babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers sing original songs which are easy to pick-up allowing everyone to join in with the singing in each session. Each week I really enjoy watching the children in all of our sessions gain confidence and musical knowledge through the original progressive curricula's we follow. The babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers play high quality instruments and learn how to play them in different ways as they progress through our four age-specific stages. At Monkey Music we know how important all aspects of a child's development are, which is why in all of our sessions the children move their whole body in different ways to the beat of the music. Our music sessions provided a great social experience for the babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers as they learn with other children of a similar age allowing all the children to be at similar stages in their development. Monkey Music is fun for the whole family and allows carers to meet other parents and carers with children of a similar age.
At Monkey Music Redditch and Worcester all our teachers are trained by Monkey Music and have continuous training throughout the year where they gain new ideas on ways to deliver our high-quality music sessions. They are supported by our high quality real instruments, resources, props and the award-winning Monkey Music curricula to deliver amazing sessions each week. Our music teachers are passionate about music and child development. They also have wonderful singing voices. All our music teachers are also first aid trained and CRB checked. To read more about our music teacher's please click below.
Music plays an important role in the early development of a child life. Research has shown music can aid all areas of a child’s development. Children are natural and instinctive music makers and in our half an hour classes will use a combination of unique songs, catchy music, rhymes, high quality props, real instruments and lots of energy to enable each baby, toddler and pre-schooler to expressive their music skills. In Monkey Music our curriculum songs and activities are carefully selected for each developmental stage which is why our classes are grouped according to age ensuring the ‘best fit’ for your child. With over three hundred original and traditions songs sung both accompanied and unaccompanied in all our four age specific classes your baby, toddler and pre-schooler will be singing our classes at home each week.
We would love to welcome you to our music session, so you are able to experience our award-winning pre-school session for yourself. Our sessions run in Redditch, Worcester, Evesham, Bromsgrove, Droitwich and Pershore areas we have classes close to you. We look forward to meeting you soon.Read more...

The Monkey Team
My name is Bethan, the best part of my week is when I am in class teaching. When I first experienced Monkey Music I found myself singing the songs all week. This is still the case now that I am teaching, people often find me singing as I am out and about. I look forward to meeting you soon at class.
I have been teaching for Monkey Music since September 2017. I find it wonderful to see the confidence build in the children each week in class. Music has been my main focus, learning to play the clarinet, flute and singing at school I still play in a Jazz band and I am glad I teach for Monkey Music.
