Please note the St. Thomas' class at 10am on Fridays is run by Simon Bailey.
My name is Alison Sneddon and I run Caterpillar Music Classes throughout West Lothian and Edinburgh West. I have been running Caterpillar Music for the last 5 years. Simon Bailey joined as a class leader in Oct 2011 and we both look forward to meeting you all at a Caterpillar Music class near you.
I am Married to Graham and we have three children,Hannah 16 years,Aaron 12 years and Aimee 5. I came across Caterpillar Music when I was looking to go back to work part-time after having Aimee. I have had a lot of experience working with children in nursery's, creches, running rainbows and brownies and also working with children with special needs. I also have a real passion for singing and music and I have played the piano since I was younger and achieved my grade 6 and also passed my standard grade music with flying colours. I thought how wonderful it would be to combine working with children with doing singing and music thats where Caterpillar Music fitted the bill. I have now being doing Caterpillar Music classes since April 2009 and we have several classes open now.
As from August 2011 I would like to introduce Simon Bailey who is coming onboard with Caterpillar Music as a Class Leader. Simon has lots of experience working with children and has managed a number of nurseries since qualifying as a nursery nurse in 1994. He is also a qualified registered nurse. Simon has joined Caterpillar Music as he wishes to start a new career and step down from his managerial positions back to what he loves the most being engaged and interacting with the children. He has a passion for singing and making music come alive and is looking forward to bringing his own personality to Caterpillar Music. I am sure Simon will be an asset to Caterpillar Music and allow more classes to take place. What do we do at Caterpillar Music Classes......
Caterpillar Music classes are based around different weekly themes each session is fun, relaxed and full of surprises. We use amazing puppets and props which keep the children engrossed and with our fantastic instruments everyone loves our band. We also do active action songs where everyone no matter how small joins in and has lots of fun.
Caterpillar music sessions are not only educational but help children gain confidence, develop language and listening skills. The children bond with the other children in the group and all our classes involve adult participation. It has been shown children benefit more from activities in which their parents or carers interact with them, it also helps develop social skills and confidence as children love learning, playing together and making new friends. Our classes are suitable from birth to 5 years old and all our equipment is suitable for the age range.
Please contact me by phone or email and come along and experience Caterpillar Music for you and your little one. Book your FREE trial now. You do not need to wait until the start of a new term we have new customers joining every week.
Caterpillar Music Birthday Party
Alison came to do our son’s 2nd birthday party earlier this year, and WOW! She had everybody singing and playing along with the musical instruments which were a big hit with everybody – including the adults! It was brilliant to see a group of 2 year olds so engaged in the activities and songs. Alison was so brilliant and so enthusiastic and made sure everyone felt part of the party. I would highly recommend Alison and the caterpillar music parties and we cannot wait till next year to book again! Thank you for a brilliant experience.
