Welcome to Monkey Music! Classes in Weybridge, Walton on Thames, Hersham, Molesey, Cobham & Stoke D'AbernonAlex Schirn 0208 2240096 [email protected] View our local page
Hello, my name is Alex Schirn and together with my wonderful team of teachers, I run Monkey Music in Weybridge, Cobham, Stoke D'Abernon, Walton on Thames, Hersham and Molesey. We offer a range of classes individually tailored for each age group, from 3 months to 4 years. We can't wait to meet you!
I grew up surrounded by music at home, I play the piano and clarinet but my main instrument is my voice. As a child and teenager I competed in various competitions for singing, winning a national award for a solo song at age 16. I took part in musical theatre and was part of a local choir and orchestra.
When I had my first child I was passionate about exposing him to music as much as possible as I understand how much it can help with child development and the skills it teaches. This lead me to finding Monkey Music seven years ago and I continue to attend classes with my daughter. I have watched as both of my children have thrived and learnt through the progressive curriculum Monkey Music offers and as a family we have thoroughly enjoyed attending classes. When the opportunity came for me to run a franchise of my own I jumped at it!
At Monkey Music we offer a range of classes individually tailored for each of our four age groups from 3 months to 4 years. By singing songs, using actions and engaging with colourful props and instruments, children build confidence, improve their vocabulary and coordination and develop vital life skills. Our classes are also designed to encourage positive communication and bonding between carer and child, as well as nurturing a lifetime of music.
We would be delighted to welcome you and your child to experience one of our award winning classes. Come along to a complimentary class and share the fun!Read more...

The Monkey Team
It's an absolute pleasure seeing the children each week and watching them develop and grow as we progress through the curriculum, I'm often amazed at how clever they are! From a 3 month old baby reaching out for a sound to a 3 year old telling me how many strings a violin has. I love it!
Michelle worked in London's West End for 10 years, appararing in musicals including Mamma Mia! She says inspiring children with music is an absolute joy. She has 2 of her own Little Monkeys George and Kia.
Karen started performing professionally from the age of 8 & played the flute to Grade 6. After school she studied dance & drama and now teaches Tap. Karen's classes are always fun-filled, happy places & the grown-ups are as likely to leave with a smile on their faces as the children.
Carl has a degree in Performing Arts and worked as a professional actor & singer. Carl has 3 children who love Monkey Music! He says 'Monkey Music combines the main passions in my life - music, performing and working with children. My class ethos is Fun, Fun, Fun!'
Emma trained in musical theatre & appreared in West End shows including Into The Woods & Annie! As a child she played the piano & the violin. Emma loves to sing & dance and loves seeing the children's faces light up when they suddenly find they are playing in time with the music!
