‘Heigh-ho’: Stage 2 (12-24 months)
October 17 @ 10:10 - 10:40
An event every week that begins at 10:10 on Thursday, repeating until 19th December 2019
About the class:
Monkey Music are award-winning music classes for little ones. Heigh-Ho, for toddlers from 12 months, is an exciting and up-beat class that is bundles of fun! Our little ones love to move so this class gets us in the mood for dancing and expressing with our whole bodies the music that we hear. Amongst hundreds of our own original songs are catchy action songs written especially to support language development and we theme our classes with a different focus each half term, using engaging and colourful props that help our visual memory. Then, of course, it’s time to play! Every child always has their own instrument, with enough of each type to go round, and we use real instruments, not toys. Our hand-held percussion instruments are designed for the little monkeys in each age-specific class to make sure that they are safe and the right size for their little hands – and they are cleaned thoroughly between classes so there’s no need to worry as they explore them! Come and have fun with us in your free first class – I can’t wait to meet you!

“Edward and Eleanor both love Monkey music. Alison is amazing. The music really helps them get a sense of rhythm and I can see how it could help language development.” – Monkey Music mum
“Ali from Monkey music came to do a session at our preschool and had children aged 2-mesmerised! There was plenty to keep them entertained including singing, dancing, musical instruments and parachute games, we would highly recommend her sessions!” – Pre-School Manager
What to wear / bring:
I provide everything you need to enjoy our classes, so just bring yourselves. Wear whatever feels comfortable and allows you to move around freely. We sit together on floor mats during class and we ask everybody to take off their shoes to keep the space nice and clean for the little ones. If you enrol onto regular classes, your child receives a Welcome Pack which includes a lovely t-shirt to wear to class.
Hi, I’m Ali – I’m an ex-Early Years teacher, now teaching the classes I loved the most myself as a mum! I taught in Surrey for 15 years and then started my Monkey Music classes in Summer 2019 after relocating to Somerset.
Monkey Music’s 4-stage curriculum has developed over 25 years and has been written with a sound understanding of how children learn best. Classes are age-specific and in small age-bands, tailor-made to meet the needs of the little ones in each group and support them at each stage of their early development. We begin with Rock’n’Roll from 3 months, then Heigh-Ho from 12 months, Jiggety-Jig for 2-3 years and finally Ding-Dong for 3 and 4 years.
First class is free.
