The benefits of introducing music to a young child at an early age are immense. Music is one of the few activities that use both sides of the brain at the same time. So why not give your child a head start whilst having great fun at Rhythm Time?

- Baby – birth to 14 months
- Toddler – 14 months to 3 years
- Pre-school – 3 years to school age
Our baby classes offer a total multi-sensory experience, stimulating all your baby’s senses and this helps vital brain connections to be made. Babies then move onto our exciting and varied toddler and pre-school sessions. This is where we help their confidence, creativity and co-ordination to grow. All courses have been written by a music teacher.
Come along and join in the fun today! You’ll even get to meet our very own Rat-a-tat listening bunny who delights our children every week! Book in for a free trial session by calling us or going to our website.

The sessions will begin with a warm-up followed by fun games and exercises which are designed to help the children become familiar with the correct techniques, rules and etiquette of football. The sessions will always end with small-sided matches.
