Sensory music classes for your baby, toddler or pre-schooler in Romford
Including Gidea Park, Ardleigh Green and Hornchurch.
Hello and welcome to Music Bugs! My name is Sarah and I run classes in Romford and Hornchurch.
At Music Bugs we provide gently structured, play-based sessions for children aged newborn to five years where they can learn and have fun in a multi-sensory environment. Our forty five minute classes are full of fun and excitement with a large variety of musical instruments and fantastic props such as puppets, hobby horses, floaty scarves, pom-poms, parachutes and a bubble machine. We sing a wide variety of nursery rhymes, counting songs, knee bouncers and action songs and most importantly create a relaxed and informal environment where you and your child can have fun together and make lots of new friends!
Watch this space for updates on venues, session times and launch dates.
I look forward to welcoming you and your little ones to my sessions very soon!
What our parents say:
“Jack really enjoys these classes. There are so many fun props to play with, such as finger puppets, instruments and a miniature horse. The sensory sessions are also lovely with a different theme every week.
I think that the atmosphere is lovely and it is also a great way to learn new songs. Sarah is extremely kind and enthusiastic”.
Emma Gwynne – mum to Jack (Baby Bugs)
“I joined Family Bugs about 2 months ago with my toddler and baby. Sarah is absolutely fantastic with all of the children and it’s different every week which makes it fun for them! My toddler can’t wait to go back each time we leave. Thank you Sarah xx”.

I have been running Music Bugs classes in the area for seven years now and absolutely love it. The children and parents I have met along the way have been wonderful and I have loved every minute of the music making madness! Previously to this I worked for five years in various childcare and education roles including: Nursery Nurse, Teaching Assistant, Learning Support Assistant, Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Teaching Assistant, Dance Teacher in a Primary School, Primary School Supply Teacher, Secondary School Cover Supervisor and Exam Invigilator. I worked in many nurseries (private day care, children’s centres and school nurseries) and schools all over London and Essex. Outside of work I am a Brownie and Guide Leader and very much enjoy all the fun and friendship Guiding brings. I love helping the girls learn important life skills, have fun, get creative and make friends for life. Through my experience of working with children in both education and childcare settings I have seen firsthand the benefits of music and learning through play in the early years. I have always had a passion for music and dance and played the cello and piano as a child, from the age of 7 to 18, as well as attending stage school, from the age of 4 to 18 where I did ballet, tap, modern and street dance. I have loved working with children of all ages throughout my career but found that the early years have the most fun! I love this age group as I get to be very creative. I also love being part of the babies’ firsts – first smile, first wave, first time clapping, first time holding a maraca, first time sitting up, first time moving forward, first steps etc. The early years are so important and precious and I just love being part of your babies’ and children’s weekly routine and helping them on their early learning journey as well as seeing them make friends, develop in confidence and gain skills that will help them in their future lives at school and beyond.
Some of the lovely feedback we've received from Music Bugs parents
My daughter has been attending classes with Sarah since she was 4 weeks old. She is nearly 4 years old. We love Music Bugs! The classes are fun, energetic and enjoyable. Sarah is amazing with the kids. X

We joined when Thomas was 8 weeks old and to see him grow and learn, with your support has been fantastic. I have also learnt new skills (and many wonderful songs) to continue supporting and entertaining Thomas at home. Thomas has enjoyed the sing-a-longs and props, especially the light up tambourine. I was worried the Covid restrictions might limit sessions, but I have found them to be great! You have really done well and worked hard to provide an energetic, friendly and entertaining atmosphere. Thank you so much!
