Hello, I’m Paula! As a teacher, musician, and mother, I’ve had a life-long passion for the importance of music in early-learning. I’m a qualified primary school teacher and headteacher of 25+ years’. Alongside Monkey Music, I love barbershop singing, and am an award-winning conductor, quartet singer and competition judge.Read more...
I’ve been running Monkey Music classes in the Winchester, Chandler’s Ford and Fareham area since January 2017, where enjoying learning together through music, is at the heart of what we do! Vital building blocks for future learning are nurtured and developed, as children progress through our innovative music curricula. Classes are small, personal and inviting - we fill the room with warmth and creativity to enable you and your child to share many precious moments together! Every child is special - no child is lost. Each thirty-minute class is jam-packed with super songs, stimulating props, fabulous instruments, and lots of activity, as we take your little one on a magical musical journey! Babies, toddlers and pre-school children are totally captivated by the whole experience!
Music has always played a central role in my life: singing in church choirs, playing the violin and guitar and performing in shows. Before I embarked on my career as a teacher, my degree was in drama; and music and performance have always been an important part of my work with children. I have served as a music leader: whether putting on shows, leading choirs and music groups or teaching the recorder. Outside the workplace, my love of close harmony singing has taken me across the world. In my role as a Singing Judge for the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS), I am in demand as a vocal coach to quartets and choruses and have served on the education faculty of Harmony Colleges many times in the UK, Ireland, Spain and Germany. I have also taught choral directing at national education events. As a singer, I have twice won quartet medals in UK competitions and directed top-flight choruses. In LABBS, I have been responsible for leading the “Education and Judging” arm of the organisation and am currently serving as the assistant category director, leading the team of singing judges.
Combining this lifelong passion for music with my love of teaching - you can see why I’m so infectiously enthusiastic to help little ones discover the joy of music for themselves!
The popularity of our lovely music activity classes is growing in the area, so I was delighted when Sarah, a professional musician and a Monkey Music mum herself, wanted to join the teaching team here at Monkey Music.Read more...

"Best class by far! I think I tried every class going during my maternity leave and without a doubt this was my sons (and mine) favourite class!"
"A huge thank you to Paula for creating such fun and engaging sessions. My daughter joins in happily and starts dancing as soon as we walk in the room. We absolutely love starting the week with Monkey Music!"
"I wholeheartedly recommend these lessons to all parents and carers, musical or otherwise. You will not be disappointed and wonder only why you didn't start with Monkey Music sooner!"
"Monkey Music is THE best music class! All my three children have loved the engaging classes. Paula is brilliant fun and all smiles and the children immediately warm to her. Keep up the great work Paula!"
"As well as being educational, the classes are essentially really great fun and you’ll never get the songs out of your head! Definitely five stars."

All the children absolutely loved it and Paula did a fantastic job of keeping their attention despite the age range being between 6 months and 6 years. I would absolutely recommend Paula and Monkey Music!
Holiday fun for all!
Monkey Music holiday workshops are a popular way to keep children entertained during the holidays. Unlike our regular classes where children are strictly grouped according to age, the holiday workshops cater for a mixed age group of children.Book your Workshop here!
