Monkey Music

“Being part of an excellent franchise network means you don't have to reinvent the wheel with each new challenge”


Monkey Music Model

What makes the Monkey Music business a success?
  • Shared experience
  • Combined knowledge
  • The people involved
Angie Coates, CEO and Founder explains

“As one of the very first pre-school businesses to franchise in the UK and as one of the first to become a full member of the British Franchise Association, we have been instrumental in developing the support offered by the pre-school activity market sector.  We're celebrating 30 years of Monkey Music and delivering over 3 million hours of classes nationwide. We are proud of our rich heritage which has manifested itself into a huge team of people who are committed to sharing the success and support and joy of Monkey Music.  These people are dedicated franchise owners, over 150 specially trained Monkey Music teachers, the supremely patient and expert Head Office Support Team, our talented composers and song writers and our many specialist consultants who are always there to advise us on more specialist issues.”

We work together in order to sustain our reputation as the UK’s premium pre-school music brand

What a Monkey Music Franchisee Offers

Regular classes

Franchisees offer a weekly timetable of age-specific classes which are pre-booked termly. Classes operate in different venues for a minimum of 36 weeks per year. A franchise operates in an exclusive franchise territory.

Nurseries and Pre-School

Teachers offer bespoke Nursery and Pre-school sessions using the Monkey Music percussion kit, props and tailored lesson plans.

Holiday workshops

Unlike our regular classes, our holiday workshops may cater for mixed age groups of children and may be attended by children who do not come to regular classes, including older siblings and friends.


The franchise business model extends to supporting franchisees with the necessary legal documents to provide Monkey Music party entertainment at private celebrations.


Separate guidance is given in the comprehensive Monkey Music Operating Manual for event bookings made by organisations, such as councils and event organisers.


A range of top quality merchandise supports the Monkey Music classes and reflects our premium brand.  Franchisees sell it to their customers for an associated marketing benefit and profit.
