Tiny Tots

Tiny Tots On Demand (6-18 months)

12 classes, £84 - start any time!

At this early stage of musical development we focus on the interaction between child and carer. Musical concepts are introduced through play and exploring different sound sources. This lays solid foundations in the brain for the development of speech and language: but above all, music-play helps babies feel happy and connected to the world!

Toddler Tunes

Toddler Tunes On Demand (18-36 months)

12 classes, £84 - start any time!

At this stage, we begin to build solid foundations for our future musicians. Children start to engage with spontaneous music making, are encouraged to discover new instruments and explore all their different voices. With the help of puppets, musical concepts are gradually introduced. Listening, imagination and fine motor skills are all enhanced, offering developmental benefits beyond music.

Little Maestros 2

Little Maestros On Demand (3 & 4 yrs)

12 classes, £84 - start any time!

With their motor skills now developed, children continue to experiment with new instruments while musical concepts are consciously integrated. Music is now introduced in such a way as to support Phase One of the Letter and Sounds national teaching programme. Teaching is also designed to enhance and promote other areas of learning set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage national curriculum. Children will be able to copy and recognise rhythms, improvise their own musical patterns and create their first compositions. Our future musicians are now independent and confident enough to be Little Maestros… at least for 45 minutes!

Tutor: Joanna Girdlestone, Jo Barwick, Hilary Dolamore, Anna Ter Haar
