About the class:
Monkey Music are award-winning music classes for little ones. Rock’n’Roll, for babies from 3 months, is such a lovely, nurturing class, with a strong focus on giving you special time to bond with your little one. Our babies develop so rapidly in this stage and our classes are designed to stimulate and support their early development. Babies are born to love music and they are fascinated by the captivating sounds around them in class. We use engaging, bright and colourful props that the babies just love, and that relate to our half-termly themes. But, of course, our babies also enjoy making music themselves! We use real instruments, not toys, which are designed especially for their little hands and we clean them thoroughly between classes so you can relax knowing that your little one is safe as they explore with all their senses! Finally, we nurture listening skills with relaxing and soothing music as we cuddle and come to the end of each class, as well as with thousands of little bubbles..! 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.
