Welcome to our classes

Hello, I'm Claire and I run Monkey Music classes for young children throughout the boroughs of Hillingdon and Harrow. My Monkey Music journey began as a mum, enjoying all 4 classes with my children and I am now privileged to run the franchise and teach too. Nurturing a love of music in young children is a delight!

We are so excited to restart our Monkey Music classes face to face from September. Our classes will be safe, secure and adhere to all government guidelines so you can relax while you enjoy sharing precious time with your little one.

Music has always been a great passion of mine and it is wonderful that we can continue to offer our classes. I started playing the violin from the age of 7 and joined the Harrow School for Young Musicians soon after. During this time I had some amazing opportunities to play at wonderful venues including the Royal Albert Hall. Later in life, I met and married a fellow violinist who is an incredibly talented musician. Needless to say, music plays a big part in our lives!

We were therefore delighted to discover Monkey Music with our first child, Noah. Knowing how music helps in all aspects of a child's development and wanting to instil a love of music with him at an early age, this was the perfect activity for us. Noah progressed through all four stages of the Monkey Music curriculum. He started with the baby class, Rock'n'Roll which was a lovely gentle introduction to music and a great bonding time for us. He was spellbound by all the new and fascinating sounds. When he was on the move, it was time for Heigh-Ho! Here, he loved all the large colourful props and exploring with great intent, all the instruments. At 2, it was time for Jiggety-Jig and in this class Noah really developed his listening skills, playing different rhythms and exploring the multitude of ways different instruments can be played and the different sounds they make. Next was Ding-Dong, the preschool class. This class was incredible - Noah learnt to read music, write his own compositions and identify the instruments of the orchestra as well as sing along to all the familiar songs with gusto! We were sad to 'graduate' but he has taken all these skills learnt with him into school and we are now enjoying the Monkey Music journey with our daughter. Both children have developed a love of music that will hopefully last a lifetime!

Having seen first-hand the benefits of attending Monkey Music, I jumped at the chance to run my local franchise of Harrow, Uxbridge and Edgware. It has been wonderful to delve into the curriculum and understand exactly how it has been designed to help all areas of development. Action songs and rhymes build language and numerical skills; playing hand held instruments such as maracas, drums and castanets refine fine motor skills while movement helps facilitate the awareness of space and of each other. Being within a group helps build children's confidence and social interaction. But the children don't realise this, they just know they are having fun and enjoying themselves!

Now, as a teacher, it is a privilege to teach the babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers, to see them captivated by the class and to see them develop through a love of music. And it is not just the children, the grownups have such fun too and it is lovely to share in their enjoyment as well.

Here at Monkey Music Uxbridge, Harrow and Edgware we have a wonderful team of teachers who you can read about below. We run classes throughout Uxbridge, Hillingdon, Northwood, Eastcote, Pinner, Harrow, Hayes, Greenford, Northolt, Ruislip, Ickenham, Wembley, Stanmore and Iver.

We are all looking forward to welcoming you soon, so book a class today and come and join us on your own Monkey Music journey.

Can I catch up a missed class? Subject to eligibility and availability it may be possible to catch up a booked class that you have missed, please contact your local class provider for more details.
Can I swap my class to another day or time? Subject to eligibility and availability it may be possible to swap a booked class, please contact your local class provider for more details.
How old does my newborn baby have to be to join the Beautiful Noise programme? Parents and carers can join our Beautiful Noise programme with their newborn baby anytime from birth up until their baby is 16 weeks old (taken from the date of their first face-to-face class).
Can my partner and I both bring our baby to Beautiful Noise? Yes, our Beautiful Noise programme is perfect for parents who attend on their own or with a partner.
How long is each Beautiful Noise face-to-face class? Each Beautiful Noise face-to-face class is an hour long. This gives everyone lots of time to settle/feed/change before the class begins and at the end of the class before leaving.
Can I feed my baby during Beautiful Noise? Yes, of course. We understand that you will want to make yourself and your baby as comfortable as possible during your Beautiful Noise class and you may feed/change/sleep whenever you feel like it!
What happens if my baby sleeps all the way through the class? Beautiful Noise has been created so that you and Baby can share precious time together whilst enjoying the class for mutual reasons and for different reasons. Our teachers understand that our youngest babies need their sleep so if your baby sleeps peacefully during your class then you will be encouraged to join in whilst they sleep close by.
Where can I find my local Beautiful Noise programme? You can click this link https://wwwapi.monkeymusic.co.uk/Beautiful+Noise/ and enter your postcode to find Beautiful Noise programmes near you. If there are no programmes happening in your local area then email hello@monkeymusic.co.uk for an update on programmes which may be opening soon.
How and when do I receive my Beautiful Noise online sessions? Our Beautiful Noise online sessions are sent via email to all members of our face-to-face classes immediately after their first and second classes. Both sessions have been created so that you can practice at home what you and Baby have learned in class.
What is in my Beautiful Noise Kit Bag? Inside your Beautiful Noise Kit Bag (a linen tote) you will find a Monkey Music wave drum, Monkey Music maracito and a sensory scarf. You will be encouraged to use these instruments and the sensory scarf at home when joining in with the online sessions.
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 ones sing, dance and play musical instruments. Grown ups join in the fun too!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
What do I need to bring with me? Everything you need to enjoy our classes is made available by the teacher, however, should you prefer not to use the Monkey Music instruments provided at class (these will have been freshly santised for each customer prior to use), you may bring your own Monkey Music approved instruments purchased from our online shop or identical items bought elsewhere. You may also bring along your own small blanket for your child to sit on.
Can I bring a newborn baby too? Babes in arms accompanying older siblings are welcome in our classes free of charge, please speak to your local classes for more information.
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.
Do I have to be musical? No! Our teachers will make you feel welcome whatever your musical ability.
Do I have to sing along? We love it when families sing along and your children will benefit from hearing the sound of a familiar voice, no matter how good or bad! But – there is no pressure to sing because listening, watching and playing the instruments will keep you and your child busy enough! Customers may enjoy our songs at home by purchasing our class specific download albums or books - all available from our online shop
Can I bring an adult friend/relative to class? This is usually possible, but we do ask that you contact your local teacher to ask permission beforehand. This is because some of our teaching rooms have maximum levels of occupancy and our teachers need to know who is attending each session, thank you.
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 and is a popular go-to places between classes to enjoy making Monkey Music at home.
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.
How do I cancel my class booking? You can cancel your booking at any time within 15 calendar days from your booking confirmation date if you have not had face to face contact with your franchisee when making that booking. To exercise your right you must inform your franchisee in writing of your decision to cancel within the cancellation period. Notice can be provided by emailing the email address or writing to the address provided to you in the booking confirmation email, including your name, home address, details of your booking and, where available, your phone number and email address or you can print off and post or email to the email or postal address shown in the booking confirmation email a completed model cancellation form, a copy of which is available from your franchisee.
In addition to the above you can end your enrolment for regular classes with Monkey Music on giving at least one month’s prior written notice to be received by your franchisee by the 1st day of the month prior to the month your next payment is due.
Where can I buy Monkey Music merchandise? Please go to www.monkeymusic.co.uk/shop
How do I become a Monkey Music franchisee? For more details, please go to https://www.monkeymusic.co.uk/franchise.
What happens at a Monkey Music Birthday Party? See https://www.monkeymusic.co.uk/more-fun for more information.
Do classes just run during term time? Regular classes run during term time. Many areas also run seasonal Holiday Workshops during school holidays.
How many children are in a class? During our transition to classes due to Covid-19, places are limited and will vary from venue to venue. Our maximum capacity is 15 children per class.
Do I have to pay in advance? Yes. After your first free class your place at class is reserved for you for 2 working days from the date and time of the free class. If you go on to confirm your place, payment for your classes will be taken on the 1st working day of each month for the classes booked in that calendar month that are due for payment. Customers joining midway through a calendar month will be charged for the remainder of classes in that calendar month. Customers booking prior to the start of term will pay for their first calendar month of classes when making their booking.
How much does a class cost? Please ask at your local Monkey Music Office.
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.
At what age can my child start Monkey Music? From 3 months old.
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.
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.
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
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.
