We have been out in the garden this week. Using our beautiful props with our littlest students we are encouraging eye tracking and listening to animal sounds, bees, mice, frogs, cats that we found in the garden. Our Heigh Ho students were feeling brave enough to help make the animal sounds and come up to the front of the class to help tidy away. In Jiggety jig we used different animals and counted how many legs each have and found the correct number for each. Sequencing the numbers in order of size. With my older students we expanded this to ‘What numbers are missing in the sequence’ We noticed the animals all had pairs of legs 2,4,6,8 so the missing numbers we discovered were all the odd numbers 1.3,5,7,

Kodály method: what it is, its benefits and how it helps children learn music 02/03/2024

I am always very excited when we start with our Ding Ding students on the first steps of the Kodaly method, we are just starting this term with basic ‘stick notation’ and will expand over the coming months. I studied this method at music conservatoire and it is amazing for improving musicianship. This is a great article.

Kodály method: what it is, its benefits and how it helps children learn music As arts education strains under the pressure of cuts, the Kodály method for teaching music has never seemed more important, suggests Helen Wallace.

Happy Shrove Tuesday everyone

As a professional musician, I always get a bit excited when we start to introduce Kodaly notation into our lesson plans. By the time my oldest students leave for school they will recognise and be able to play most simple crotchet/ quaver rhythm patterns, making up their own 4 bar sequences to play for the class. We also learn about the different families of the orchestra and the main instruments in each. Today we were using the boomwhackers for Rhythm and exploring how the different lengths change the pitch. We discovered that the shorter the length the higher the pitch of each boomwhacker. Clever students.

Our smaller students have been exploring different ways of travel, some stranger than others. Today we have been riding on bumpy camels and slow plodding elephants, moving around in time to the music. Monkey brought his friends to help. It’s wonderful to see little people getting the confidence to come out to the front of the class. Who is in the box is a fun highlight of a class as we all knock on the box to wake up the friends inside.

Our Story

Award winning music classes held in Guildford, Godalming, Bramley and Shalford for children from 3 months to 4 years.

Established in London in 1993, classes are now a weekly treat for 1,000s of families across the UK.

Rock 'n' Roll – from 3 months:
Designed specifically for Mums, Dads and very young babies to share together.
During each class the babies and adults are engaged through gentle songs, fascinating sounds and absorbing activities.

Heigh Ho – from 12 months:
Young toddlers love being up on their feet so lots of dancing and moving encourages the children to explore the space around them and express the music they hear.
The children thrive on the 'steady beat' and are very enthusiastic young members of the Monkey Music band. Themed classes and bold colourful props captivate the children and encourage everyone to get involved.

Jiggety Jig – from 2 years:
By this stage, children can really express the joy that music brings them. They sing, dance, play, move, tell stories, speak, and listen to music together.
Monkey Music teachers make sure that the children develop their sense of rhythm whilst playing in time to Monkey Music songs and games. Hoops, parachute games and circle dances are always popular Jiggety Jig activities.

Ding D**g – from 3 years
Up until now the children have been listening and responding to music they hear. Now that their ears have been ‘finely tuned’ Monkey Music teaches them what music means when they see it written down.
Reading simple traditional musical notation comes easily to Monkey Music children as it is integrated into the final part of our interactive curriculum
