About Music Bugs - Brighton, Hove & Eastbourne
At Music Bugs, our aim is not to teach music, but to allow and encourage young children to develop, grow and explore the world around them through music and song.
Participation in music and singing classes is a great way for your child to socialise and develop in a creative and stimulating environment. In addition, research has shown that singing songs and rhymes on a regular basis helps to widen your child’s vocabulary and listening skills which are an essential part of learning to read, write and communicate. During a typical 40 minute class, we will sing nursery rhymes, counting songs, knee bouncers, action songs and finger play rhymes. A wide range of props (pom poms, puppets, scarves, bubbles, percussion instruments, hobby horses, and teddies) help to engage your child’s attention and bring our sessions to life. The classes are split by age:-
Baby Bugs (0 - Crawling)
These multi-sensory classes provide a perfect introduction to music and singing for your baby. From a very young age, your baby will be able to recognise and respond to the pattern and rhythm of music and will enjoy being held, rocked, swayed and soothed as you enjoy the class together. We will introduce you to lots of new songs (plus many old favourites) that you will be able to continue to enjoy together at home.
Mini Bugs (6-24 months)
In our Mini Bugs classes, your baby and toddler are encouraged to interact and move around during the class as we explore a wonderful range of tactile and exciting props and get to grips with finger play rhymes, counting songs, knee bouncers and action songs.
Jumping Bugs (1 1/2 - 4 years)
Often our most lively classes as children make use of every opportunity to express themselves through music and movement. Rhythm work, counting songs and activities designed to develop confidence and independence.
Family Bugs (Mixed Ages)
There’s a real community feel to our Family Bugs classes as siblings, grandparents, childminders and friends come together to sing and share the music making experience. Our Franchisees and Class Leaders work very hard during these sessions to ensure that everyone is included and it’s no wonder that our Family Bugs classes are very popular.
