Mulberry Bush Music is a small, friendly, drop in toddlers and pre-school music group in Betchworth Village Hall.
The classes, with live piano music, take place every Tuesday morning in term time at 9.30, followed by refreshments and play time. Each weekly session is based on a different theme e.g. On the Farm or Make Believe. There are action songs, percussion, rhyme time, role play and a musical story and we have great fun with props and costumes.
The children are encouraged to listen and participate, share and take turns. Through their enjoyment of the music and movement, they develop pulse and rhythm, concentration and co-ordination. This is a drop in class, but the children benefit from coming regularly as they become familiar with the structure.
Mulberry Bush Music is run by Julie Hardy, who has accompanied pre-school music classes for 20 years, and Sarah Pearson, who is a qualified, experienced primary school teacher. Both live locally.
