We are delighted to be bringing classes back to East London from September. Emma will be providing baby and toddler sessions at Prospect Hall in Woodford Green on Tuesday mornings. A fantastic venue, and hopefully one which some of our previous Woodford babies and toddlers can get along to easily.
We are thrilled to announce that the amazingly popular Story & Song sessions are returning to Essex this holiday period. Emma will be offering a drop in Story & Song session in North Weald on Wednesday 16th December at 10am. If you would like to come along it is £5 (additional siblings £2) and will be fabulously festive with lots of fun christmas songs and an adorable christmas story for 0-5 year olds.

We are soooo excited to announce that Emma Corrigan is going to be starting up Music For Baby Classes in North Weald in the Autumn Term. Emma is an amazing singer with a West End background, and we are delighted to have her on board!!
Karen and Emma first met musically back in 2000, and then lost touch until a chance encounter in a supermarket in 2008 when Emma had just had her first baby and Karen was pregnant with her first. They stayed in touch and then by chance Karen began running Music For Baby Classes in the same venue Emma worked at in Loughton and the relationship grew.
Emma has been a fan of Music For Baby Classes ever since, bringing her daughter to groups for years, and her son is a fabulous helper when he comes to special events and activities! We think Emma is going to make an amazing group leader, and we are thrilled to welcome her to the Music For Baby family xxx
Story and Song is our popular drop in session for 0-5 year olds available a variety of settings – Libraries, book shops, toy shops, baby shops, nurseries, children’s centres, festivals and events.
Listen to a captivating story by well known author and then join in with songs, and rhymes accompanied on guitar. Story and Song sessions can be themed or seasonal to suit your occasion.
If you are a venue or setting in East Devon and you would be interested in hosting our Story and Song sessions please contact Karen@musicforbaby.co.uk to discuss details.
Well, some of you who attend our classes in Essex already know, but our Music For Baby Headquarters are relocating to Devon. We are moving to a small town on the coast near Exeter, and are thrilled to be bringing our early years music to the South West.

The wonderful Mike, who creates all the superb recordings we dance, and sing and play along to, has a day job as a guitarist. He can be seen on TV on Sunday, at 5:40pm on Channel 4 in the feature film HUGO by Martin Scorsese – see if you can spot him playing his guitar (cunningly disguised in a wig and moustache!)
Mike also does a small amount of guitar teaching from our Home Studio in Loughton. He is offering some summer courses for anyone who wants to begin or boost their guitar playing. visit his website for more info – www.MikeEaves.co.uk
