Babies and Children all over the UK and beyond have been enjoying Music with Mummy since 1992. I have been running classes in the Thornbury area since 2000.
Music with Mummy, Jolly Babies and Three Four Time have all been designed specifically with the changing needs of the children in mind. The classes are small in size, and whilst you might recognise some nursery rhymes and folk songs, the vast majority of the songs have been written specifically for us... hooray! Lots of new stuff to sing!
With a mixture of action songs, percussion and good old fashioned singing, classes are a lively and happy place to be! We spend time developing the child's confidence and aim to make music part of everyday life. MOST OF ALL... WE HAVE FUN!
The classes I run are: JOLLY BABIES aged 0 - approx. 14 months, MUSIC WITH MUMMY for children aged approx. 15 months - 3yrs and THREE FOUR TIME for children aged 3 and 4 years old.
For more information please call or email me. I look forward to hearing from you.
