Welcome to Monkey Music! Classes in Woking

Welcome to our classes

I’m Naomi and I run Monkey Music Woking.  I have a real passion for music so when I had my first child, Monkey Music was the choice when looking at classes to attend. Three children on and lucky enough to own a Monkey Music franchise, my brilliant team and I work to deliver a weekly class that is fun and educational.

Welcome to Monkey Music Woking, I am Naomi and along with my brilliant teaching team, I run Monkey Music for Woking, Byfleet and Chobham areas.

As a child, I grew up around music, learning the piano when I was in primary school and always listening to my parent’s LP’s on a Saturday afternoon.

My husband is a musician, having played in several bands and working in the music industry, I have been fortunate to have music as a big part of my life and have been exposed to many different types of music.

I was introduced to Monkey Music after having my little boy in 2012.  I was searched around and tried lots of different classes, as I wanted a class that was going to develop him in different ways, while being fun and giving quality time for him and I.  I now have 3 children and am still attending with my 2 girls.

Having watched my son complete all 4 stages of Monkey Music, I have noticed how his confidence has grown, his love of music and his ability to pick musical rhythms as well as his interest in playing musical instruments. 

Now with my 3-year-old daughter in Jiggety-Jig and my baby girl just started in Rock'n'Roll, I am seeing them demonstrate the same skills.

After I had my first daughter, I started looking for a career opportunity that would give me a good work/home life balance, but that supported my passion for music and my belief in the enrichment it gives to a child’s life, so Monkey Music became the obvious choice.

Having taken over the Woking area in 2016, it has been so much fun.  I have learned what it takes to become a teacher for Monkey Music; the time, energy and the thought and planning that goes into every class.  Having taught classes, it was lovely to see how each child grows each week, what they take from each class and how important it is to so many families.

I am really privileged to work with my team of teachers.  They have a mix of experience, musical education and a real passion for what they do.  I am always hearing from the families in our classes, how much they enjoy their class and how brilliant their teacher is, which for me, makes it all worthwhile!

The Monkey Team

Carl Carew

I have a degree in Performing Arts and was a professional actor/singer. I’ve been teaching for over 7 years and am 1 of only 5 male teachers in the UK and love to show the children that men can be singers and act funny too! I think learning through having fun is what it’s all about!

Sarah Millist

I'm Sarah, a mum to two girls, a local Chertsey resident and baby massage instructor. I love music and singing and have been part of the local Rock Choir.  I love teaching; seeing all the little monkeys in my classes progressing each week, joining in with the songs and making new friends.

Zoe Copperwheat

I studied piano up to grade 5 and took singing lessons at the royal college of music. I am part of the Byfleet players amateur dramatic group and recently played in the Christmas panto.  I was part of the riverside youth theatre and danced in ballet, tap and modern. 

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 monkeys sing, dance and play musical instruments. Big monkeys join in the fun too!
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.
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
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.
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.
At what age can my child start Monkey Music? From 3 months old.
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.
How much does a class cost? Please ask at your local Monkey Music Office.
Do I have to pay a term in advance? Yes. After your first complimentary class you reserve your place and are invoiced pro rata for the remaining classes in the term. Families who attend our classes will often bond with their teacher and other members of their group. In order to reserve places so that everyone can be together we facilitate a termly booking system. This also encourages our families to attend regularly so that everyone learns new skills at the same pace.
How many children are in a class? Maximum 15
Do classes just run during term time? Regular classes run during term time. Many areas also run seasonal Holiday Workshops during school holidays.
What happens at a Monkey Music Birthday Party? See More Fun on the main website.
How do I become a Monkey Music franchisee? For more details, please click here
Where can I buy Monkey Music merchandise? Please click here.
Why pay a membership fee? When enrolling in Monkey Music for the first time, a child becomes a member of the Little Monkey Club. New members receive a Welcome Pack, including a Monkey Music T-shirt and a singalong promo CD as well as access to our online club which supports the child in their learning experience at Monkey Music. The membership fee is payable when registering each child in regular weekly classes at Monkey Music and we offer a discount to siblings who join at any stage. Siblings receive their own welcome pack and T-shirt to wear to class. Ask your local classes for more details.
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.
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.
Can I bring a sibling? Yes! We offer discounts for siblings, ask your local classes for more details.
Do I have to sing along? We love it when our customers join in and your children benefit from hearing the sound of a familiar voice, no matter how good or bad!
Do I have to be musical? No! Our teachers will make you feel welcome whatever your musical ability.
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.
Can I bring my newborn too? Yes! Newborn babies are welcome in our classes, please speak to your local classes for more information.
What do I need to bring with me? Everything you need to enjoy our classes is provided by the teacher.
What if I can’t make my usual class? You are welcome to catch up with any classes that you miss. Speak to your local classes to book a catch up class.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
