Musical Bumps Ltd began trading in 2002. Founder Sarah Carling was unable to find a music group to share with her children that both fulfilled her high musical expectations and gave her the opportunity to combine a social time to enjoy with her babies.
So, as a music education specialist, she devised the Musical Bumps ‘formula’ using her professional expertise and belief that the Kodaly philosophy was the best possible starting point. This is now proven to be both educationally sound and commercially successful.
The first Musical Bumps classes were in Hackney in London and East Malling in Kent. They were immediately popular and very successful. Parents chose Musical Bumps classes because of the friendly environment, the opportunity for socialising and the clear musical progression as their children grew. The franchise business was launched in 2003 and classes soon expanded within Kent and to other areas of London and the South East.
