Monkey Music classes and the four stage curriculum are designed to nurture a lifetime love of music. And it's great for adults too. You don't need to know the difference between a crochet and a quaver – just turn up to a class and rediscover your inner musician.
I took Harriet along to a class near us and she loved joining in with the other children.
Rock 'n' roll – from three months
Designed specifically for Mums, Dads and very young babies to share together.
During each class the babies and adults are engaged through gentle songs, fascinating sounds and absorbing activities.
Heigh ho – from 12 months
Young toddlers love being up on their feet so lots of dancing and moving encourages the children to explore the space around them and express the music they hear.
The children thrive on the "steady beat" and are very enthusiastic young members of the Monkey Music band. Themed classes and bold colourful props captivate the children and encourage everyone to get involved.
Jiggety jig – from two years
By this stage, children can really express the joy that music brings them. They sing, dance, play, move, tell stories, speak, and listen to music together.
Monkey Music teachers make sure that the children develop their sense of rhythm whilst playing in time to Monkey Music songs and games. Hoops, parachute games and circle dances are always popular Jiggety Jig activities.
Ding dong – from three years
Up until now the children have been listening and responding to music they hear. Now that their ears have been "finely tuned" Monkey Music teaches them what music means when they see it written down.
Reading simple traditional musical notation comes easily to Monkey Music children as it is integrated into the final part of our interactive curriculum.
Monkey Music and Parenting Without Tears are delighted to offer you and your baby/pre-school child a life enhancing, interactive musical experience. Visit Monkey Music, find a class near you and quote Parenting Without Tears when you book.
