Monkey Music, the award-winning pre-school music group for children aged 3 months to 4 years, currently holds weekly classes in Leatherhead and Dorking.
Founded in London in 1993, Monkey Music nurtures a child's natural love of music so that it will last a lifetime. Based on an exciting and progressive curriculum, Monkey Music provides weekly music classes that are entertaining and educational, and is imaginatively taught by specialist teachers who gently encourage social and musical skills within a fun, stimulating and friendly environment.
Classes are small and tailor-made, and teachers make full use of the lively 30 minute classes to captivate the children, using a winning combination of catchy music, percussion instruments, visual props and boundless energy, with lots of opportunities for the children to experiment with the instruments and make music of their own.
Over 300 traditional and original songs, musical games and exciting movement ideas are used throughout the curriculum, with the children grouped in small classes according to their age.
Unique to Monkey Music is a new curriculum, especially written for babies from 3 months and in response to demand from parents, who are increasingly aware of the importance of introducing children to music from as young an age as possible.
Called 'Rock 'n' Roll', each class is themed around the everyday life of a very young child and is a special time in the week for parents and carers to simply stop, look at each other and enjoy the sensory experience of sound together.
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.
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.
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.
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.

This recommendation was made verbally by a parent speaking to the KalliKids team and confirmed in writing.
Alexander has been going to Monkey Music for over 2 years now. He absolutely he loves it! It is a great introduction to music as they cover so many genres and instruments as well as encourage children to move to the music. Our teacher Carl is fantastic - he is very entertaining and is really good at interacting with the children. Alexander adores him. Attending Monkey Music classes has helped my son's co-ordination and feel for the rhythm. We also hired Carl for Alexander's birthday party and it was a great success with both children and adults.
My son asks to go to Monkey Music every day, he loves it so much. Not only is it fun but the structure of each class and the different class types mean you and your child can really see/hear/feel their progress. Teacher Carl is fantastic with kids and adults alike. I cannot recommend it highly enough!
Well done and congratulations!
