Not every child wants to be hugged, but every child wants to know that we can handle their big emotions and be a calming presence whenever they need us. 💗

This is such a great visual of co-regulation. Of course sometimes your child won't want to be held and don't force it. But if we can stay calm, meet the feeling not the behaviour then co-regulation can happen. When we hold our child there is a physical change. Their nervous system will mirror ours. We just have to wait for the fire to go out.

Our Story

Happy beat is a culmination of our passion, joy, experience and love of children and music. We would love to take you on a journey of how Happy Beat started and to where we are now. Catherine has always had a love of music and has expressed that through her journey in teaching children, she has taught various music and movement programmes alongside a music career involving a background in classical and jazz piano training as well as performing professionally as a percussionist. In 2012 Catherine drew form her passion and experience and created Happy Beat. Soon after Catherine branched out on her own she partnered up with Nicola and together they spent many hours creating a beautiful curriculum and still today continue to grow it. Nicola has always found joy and love in working with children and has many years of experience teaching and caring for children. Nicola has a degree in psychology which has infused into creating our curriculum and gaining a greater understanding of children and the impact of music and movement in their world. We’ve been around for many years but for us it’s just the beginning, let the music begin!
