A little bit about our classes:

At the heart of every class are Tock the Clock and Brown Bear, they feature in core songs and provide structure within the weekly classes. Children love to wind Tock the Clock and watch him choose the special song of the week.

All classes combine familiar and new elements in a structured way, so that our weekly sessions feel familiar yet fresh, featuring core songs, topical songs, music and movement, instrument time and sensory moments.

Four separate age groups are offered using age-specific curriculum, written and delivered by qualified, experienced music teachers.

Monkey Music

Thursday mornings - Award-winning classes for babies & young children (from 3 months – 4 years) that are both fun and educational!

Award-winning classes for babies & young children (from 3 months – 4 years) that are both fun and educational!

Monkey Music understands that music is fundamental to a pre-school aged child’s development. Based on an innovative and progressive curriculum, our classes introduce music to children in a way that they can easily understand and enjoy.

One of the first pre-school activities to launch in the sector, our unique teaching curriculum was written by classically trained musicians. Classes are small and encourage children to learn with their carers and friends through catchy songs, games and dances that you will all remember for years to come.

We will initially offer the following age-specific classes:

  • Rock ‘n’ Roll – babies from 3 months
  • Heigh-Ho – toddlers from 12 months
  • Jiggety-Jig – 2 & 3 year olds

You can book a complimentary taster via our website:www.monkeymusic.co.uk/area/oxford  or email us if you have any questions [email protected]

We are delighted to be bringing Monkey and Mo back to Thame, and can’t wait to meet you!
