Eric Liddell Centre

At Monkey Music, we know that music is fundamental to a pre-school aged child's development. Our progressive and educational four stage curricula are designed to nurture a lifetime of music: from rock 'n' roll to ding-dong, classes are a 'good fit' for each separate age group. By the time our little monkeys 'graduate', they have a sound base from which to build a musical future.... have a look!

Our classes are rich, nourishing and great fun!


Rocknroll (for babies from 3 months)...

Pave the way for your child’s future emotional and intellectual development with:

- A stimulating musical environment
- Gentle songs and fascinating sounds
- Absorbing activities and precious shared moments

Designed specifically for Mums, Dads and very young babies to share together. During each class the babies and adults are engaged through gentle songs, fascinating sounds and absorbing activities.

Heigh-Ho (for toddlers from 12 months)...

The Monkey Music Band is toddlers’ favourite place to be:

- They are up on their feet exploring their own space
- They learn to respond to the music that they hear
- They benefit from lots of interaction with themed classes and colourful props

Jiggety-Jig (for 2 and 3 year old's)...

These little monkeys develop a strong sense of rhythm through:

- Dancing and singing in their group
- Composing their own music
- Playing percussion instruments

Ding-Dong (for 3 and 4 year old's)...

With their ears 'finely tuned' our wisest monkeys also use their eyes:

- To recognise written music
- To understand musical patterns
- To learn more about instruments of the orchestra

Monkey Music classes in North Edinburgh are a wonderful way to watch your child’s musical interest and ability flourish. There are loads of opportunities for the children to experiment with percussion instruments and to have fun singing original songs as well as popular nursery rhymes, musical games and exciting movement ideas.
