Monkey Chatter

Wow it’s half term already and my first half a term as a Monkey Music teacher has flown by in a flurry of bells, scarves and maracas.  I really have had the best time! As a former teacher I knew I would love teaching the sessions but I don’t think I was prepared for just how much!

At a recent Monkey Music training day I met another teacher who said to me “Isn’t it just the best job ever? Children look at you like you are a magical music fairy!” I couldn’t have said it better myself. The power of music really is amazing, whether it is my youngest Little Monkeys at three months old, or my oldest three year olds, they all love their weekly music session. The wonder in their eyes when listening to Monkey Magic sounds or joining in with playing the instruments really is amazing.

Over the past 6 weeks I have seen children come along so much- children who started the sessions just wanting to run around the hall are now sitting and listening to music and playing along with the beat. Babies are starting to reach to instruments and experiment with making a variety of sounds, and children who came to the classes very shyly are now interacting with other children and sharing instruments. At this young age babies and children are constantly learning and developing and it really is a privilege to help them along their way and witness it every week!

If you haven’t already joined us in class why not book your first complimentary first session. If you have already joined us, thank you for being a star!
