Greenwich Early Years Music

Greenwich Early Years Music is the programme for young children and families from Greenwich Music School - a registered charity and centre of excellence in music education.

We’re passionate about helping each child grow a life-long relationship with music. Our carefully structured weekly music classes form a curriculum which progresses through to school age and beyond.

We encourage each child’s natural musicality - together we learn through play, exploring music through movement, singing, instruments, puppets, storytelling and games.

Founded by pianist and educator Bethan Scolding MMus, our programme for babies, toddlers and young children is based on our in-depth understanding of how music skills develop, years of experience in teaching and professional music, and is informed by the latest research. We also provide training and CPD for those leading music in childcare and education settings.

What do parents say about our classes?

"My little girl has been going to Greenwich Music School since she's 11 months and we absolutely love Bethan and her class"

- Diana

"At GMS they have a fantastic method of teaching music to toddlers. We are so lucky to have found them. We use a lot of our imaginations in class, have learned many new songs and are now familiar with a lot of different instruments."

- Olga

"Unlike the other activities I do with my daughter, Cradlesongs is something I enjoy just as much as she does.
I love having the opportunity to do a bit of singing every week, adn the breathing exercises in particular bring me some much needed relaxation. Eleanor is a warm and enthusiastic teacher and makes us all feel comfortable.
The class has also widened the repertoire of songs I sing
at home to my daughter."

"Fiona was perfect! So kind and so professional"
