At Wizard Music we have three aims for our classes:
- Early education through music and singing – a fun way for children to learn about colours, shapes, counting, listening, language, turn taking etc
- Learning all about music – exploring musical concepts and sounds through singing and playing instruments
- Enjoyment and having fun – quality time with your child, whilst experiencing activities which you can replicate at home.

All babies are born with the potential to become musical and they often react to songs and music with enthusiasm. They benefit greatly from a musical environment in which to stimulate their neural pathways in their brain.
In our 3-12 month group, we’ll show you lots of special bonding and musical development activities that both you and your baby will love. You’ll sing nursery rhymes, play with instruments, hum and dance together through a sensory experience. All these activities contribute towards a happy, healthy, sociable baby.
At these classes, we encourage musical development through exposing babies to melodies and rhythms which have a lot of repetition. Babies interact by shaking maracas and bells along with the music. We develop basic rhythm with a simple 4/4 beat and of course, lots of active movement along to the music! Activities like this will delight and engage your child, as well as developing their self-confidence.
In these classes, your child will explore different sounds, develop their listening skills and a musical ear. We will practise rhymes to help develop speech and move around in time to the music.
In our oldest class we focus on building skills in preparation for learning an instrument. Your child will learn musical symbols and concepts including notes, dynamics and rhythms.
