The classes are led by professional musicians who are charismatic and energetic teachers, skilled at engaging grown-ups and children alike. The entire staff works tirelessly to ensure the highest levels of instruction. Equally important, they take fastidious care with hygiene and cleanliness; all toys, props, mats and instruments and meticulously washed after each class.
Monkey Music has a fantastic music curriculum delivered by professional musicians, written within the Early Years Foundation Stages Framework. Children learn about pulse, instruments, pitch; they sing sonorous melodies and by the time your child starts school, they will be little musicians. Having gone through the Monkey Music curriculum, your child will enter primary school with a wealth of musical knowledge including the ability to read music and tonal hands signs. Equally important, you both have great fun learning and sharing with your infant while meeting local families.
Rock’ n’ Roll music classes are designed for babies from 3 months. They have a stimulating musical environment with beautiful songs with engaging sounds. Infants are exposed to a wide variety of musical instruments, resources and hand-crafted props to captivate little ones. It is really a lovely time for both grown ups and babies.
For toddlers from 12 months, Monkey Music offers Heigh-Ho, a class which extends your child’s ability to concentrate while supporting language development, visual memory and listening skills. Music is introduced in a way they can easily understand and enjoy; the lessons are filled with gorgeous, hand crafted puppets, percussion instruments, dance, movement, fun and laughter.
Jiggety-Jig is the class for 2 and 3 year olds. Here, Monkey Music builds on the foundation of the infant classes by expanding on music activities while helping children compose their own music. Children will build on their music knowledge by focusing on finding the beat, playing quietly and loudly, learning about pulse and tempo while exploring basic music theory. This class is great preparation for nursery as there is lots of taking turns, making friends and saying “please” and “thank you”.
Once children are school-age, Monkey Music offers Ding-Dong classes for 3 and 4 year olds. In Ding-Dong children learn the basics of reading music, the different sections of the orchestra and children compose their own simple pieces of music. In their weekly Monkey Music class, children will learn to clap, read, play and conduct written music and will be encouraged to sing individually and as a group. Children take part in fun music games and discuss differing kinds of music they are hearing.
