Classes for Children aged 0-12

Babies, Toddlers & Preschoolers

Our 0-3 and 2-4 Classes

Engaging songs & activities, movement and stories to encourage children to make the music their own.


Reception & Key Stage 1

Classes for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2

Learning the language of music in a fun and playful way, the ideal foundation for later instrumental tuition. Children acquire a good sense of rhythm and tuning, and learn to read basic music notation – no home practice required.


Key Stage 2 - Applied Musicianship

Classes for children in Year 3 and beyond

Children continue discovering and mastering increasingly advanced concepts, learning the nuts and bolts of music practically through continued whole-body movement, singing games and instruments. All children learn to play the recorder, and also have the option to bring other instruments they play to the lessons.  Learning to play by ear, sight-reading and harmonising are all covered, developing well-rounded musicians


Home Ed

Weekday morning classes for home-educated children 

Classes for home-educated children and their parents covering a range of ages and enabling families with several children to all attend the same class

Fun - Sensory - Structured

The Coronavirus crisis has changed life as we know it - so we're going with the flow, offering live online music classes for babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers, primary school-aged children and children with special needs.

Our classes run throughout the week during term-times and will continue on the online platform Zoom for at least the first half of the Autumn '20 term - view our timetable here. Also, do make the most of our free online resources


Passionate about children and music, we are solidly rooted in the Kodály method to bring you the best teaching practices from around the world.

Classes at our venues the Harlington in Fleet and at the Spire Church in Farnham will resume once restrictions have been lifted.
