Monkey Music follows a unique teaching curriculum written by classically trained musicians, designed to introduce music to very young children in a way they can easily understand and enjoy.
We run weekly classes across Cheltenham and Gloucester for babies from 3 months to children of 4 years. They are all small and tailor made, grouped according to age.
We start with Rock n Roll – gentle songs and absorbing activities for babies from 3 months. Toddlers then move to Heigh Ho, getting up on their feet and exploring props. Our two and three-year-olds learn to sing, dance and play instruments in Jiggety Jig, while our biggest monkeys head to Ding Dong, where they learn to understand musical patterns and recognise notes.
Each 30 minute class is full of energy – captivating the children using a winning combination of catchy music, percussion instruments, visual props, boundless enthusiasm and lots of opportunities for the children to experiment with instruments and make music of their own.
It’s about letting our children have fun with music whilst enhancing development, listening, concentration, confidence and social skills.
