Musicality Kids is a fun, flexible and interactive music class run by a local musician and mum, which introduces little ones to all aspects of music.
Suitable for babies, toddlers and preschoolers, each themed session uses a variety of props, instruments, lights and sensory toys to explore the four things that make music interesting; different beats, high & low, loud & soft and fast & slow.
Children also get to meet some orchestral instruments along the way.
Classes also explore different types of music (from Beethoven to the Beatles) and music from around the world. Although classes do incorporate some of the well-known children’s favourites, Musicality Kids uses a variety of material which makes each session different and engaging.
Musicality Kids runs a super flexible system, recognising the challenges of family life. Parents and carers can sign up for a 6 week flexipass that can be used any weeks over any term meaning you don’t lose your sessions if you can’t attend. Numbers are also capped meaning there’s no need to book each week. Siblings also get an incredible discount as Musicality Kids loves to see families bonding over music.
It’s just £39 for a 6 week flexipass.
Siblings are and £14 each.
The first session is always free to ensure the classes are right for you and your child before you commit.
Now in its fourth year, Musicality Kids has seen children go on to school and continue with music in a confident way, often picking an instrument with a great understanding of rhythm and pitch.
You can read an official Mumbler review of Musicality Kids here.
