Tadpole Tunes is a carefully devised music class created to support your child's early development with gross and fine motor skills, social communication, and early musical skills, whilst having fun!
Our fast paced weekly classes last approximately 35 minutes. Each is packed with a welcome song, puppets, topic based action songs and dances, percussion, instrument demonstrations, bubbles and sometimes 'musical box' and story time. After the class there is time for a biscuit and free play for the children while the adults enjoy a hot drink and yummy homemade cake. This time at the end of the session is a valuable opportunity to meet friends and for everyone to socialise.
The topics covered in the classes are designed to be relevant and inspiring and can also be used at home. Popular topics include 'My Body', 'Exercising' and 'Animals'. Each topic uses catchy original songs and movement, dances and traditional songs with groovy Tadpole Tunes recorded backing tracks with live instruments and music technology.
Fees are paid termly in advance and terms will vary to follow the school calendar. An individual class calculates at £5 per child plus £1.50 per sibling over 9 months old, therefore a typical termly fee will be £60. The fee includes a biscuit for the children, hot drinks for the adults and homemade cake. (The same price as going to a cafe but having a quality music class for your child beforehand!).
Why termly ? Because these classes are built for development. Children learn routines, gain confidence, make friends and learn songs. (And we also like having small consistent groups to add to our well known cosy and relaxing atmosphere).
