Liz Gray, primary school teacher and music specialist says “I love the warm, friendly and relaxed style that each session offers, and I have found it exciting to see a grasp of the basic elements of music develop.  I have found these classes are different from other classes on offer as they really help develop a sense of pitch and rhythm, which can provide babies and toddlers a foundation that will develop into a life-long love of music.”
