Early Years Workshops – Shake, Rattle & Roll

Monday Morning Music Workshops for babies and under-5s

Interactive, creative, and fun – our Shake, Rattle and Roll music workshops for early years are a great way to introduce your little ones to the world of music-making. Move and grove along to new sounds and songs, and get up close to the instruments of the orchestra. With no more than 15 children in a group, your child will receive individual attention as well as taking part in whole group activities. 

Monday morning sessions:

Crawlers to Climbers (aged 1–2): 10–10.45am 
Toddlers to Tinkers (aged 2–4): 11–11.45am 
Wrigglers to Rollers (newborns–up to 6 months): 12–12.45pm 

We also offer workshops for parents and babies from newborn to 6 months. This workshop is designed to enhance the connection between parent and baby during this exciting yet challenging time. The sessions will include singing, listening, relaxing and anything else that could help you during these early stages. You will be able to meet other new parents and chat through your experiences in a supported, relaxed environment. 

'It was great to have music and singing as a support for the early months of motherhood. The songs we learned together have become an important part of our daily life'

'Vanessa has the most wonderful manner with the children. She captures their attention with her humour and wit, encourages them to express themselves and gives them a feeling of confidence, worthiness and freedom'
