Real Music, real education, real fun!
Top quality, relaxed and fun music classes for babies and children to share and enjoy with their parents or carers.
Musical Bumps classes are based on the Hungarian (Kodaly) methodology of music education. We have developed a unique repertoire including lots of traditional favourites with less well-known songs from around the world. this is supplemented with specially commissioned original material. Carefully chosen repertoire enables musical skills and concepts to be easily learnt and understood.
At Musical Bumps, babies and children also develop and practise non-musical skills including turn-taking, sharing, listening and joining in. They grow in confidence and their language development is often above average. Our activities support all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Learning that’s fun is learning that’s remembered. Musical Bumps follows the Early Years Foundation Stage principle of learning through play; games and puppets are key to our success. Although structured, the classes are relaxed and allow time for socialising and free play. Many lasting friendships are formed by children and adults at Musical Bumps!
Classes are carefully tailored to each stage of development from birth to five years. children move through the groups according to their individual needs ~ the suggested age-ranges are always flexible.
All our teachers are carefully chosen; most are experienced teachers and/or musicians who are extensively trained in all elements of pre-school music education and the Musical Bumps curriculum. If you are interested in becoming a Musical Bumps teacher please see our Business Pages. All staff hold an Enhanced Disclosure Certificate and follow the Musical Bumps Child Protection and Safeguarding policy.
Families are loyal to Musical Bumps because of the unique and excellent quality of classes along with the friendly and approachable attitude of our teachers. Parents and childminders often return with younger children and recommend us to friends and relations!
