Hello, my name is Alex and I run Music Bugs classes for ages newborn to 5. I’m a mum to two gorgeous children (Harry and Annabel) and am passionate about the benefits music and singing can bring to our children’s lives.
I can’t wait to welcome you to my classes!
Did you know? “Singing songs to your child widens their vocabulary and improves listening skills, both of which make learning to read easier” (Professor John Sloboda, Keele University)
Singing with your child is one of the most important and enriching activities that you can do and research has shown us time and again that music and singing are an excellent way to develop early language and communication skills.
At Music Bugs, we provide gently structured, play-based sessions for children aged newborn to 5 where they can develop and grow and have fun in a multi-sensory environment. Our 40 minute classes are full of fun and excitement with a large variety of fantastic props such as puppets, parachutes, pom poms, bubble machines, floaty scarves and teddies. We will sing nursery rhymes, counting songs, finger play rhymes, knee bouncers and action songs and allow you and your child to relax, have fun together and make lots of new friends!
Why not book a taster session with your child and join us for some serious fun and music making? We offer a range of family-friendly discounts for siblings, twins and childminders and can’t wait to welcome you to our classes.
Some of the lovely feedback we've received from Music Bugs parents
“We love Music Bugs! The class is fantastic and the props are amazing – the hobby horses are Jacks favourite. I personally love all of the musical instruments and we’ve learnt so many new songs we sing them together at home. If you are looking for a baby/toddler group, this is the one to book”.
The Hobby Horses are our favourite!
Prior to joining my daughter wasn’t comfortable being around other children or strangers. Since joining Music Bugs, she is now very confident in all social situations and has discovered a love of instruments and anything musical. I cannot recommend this class highly enough especially if you want something relaxed, creative, educational for your little one which guarantees full adult participation every week.
