About Me

After many years of teaching babies and young children music, Tim and I started Caterpillar music Kingston and Richmond in November 2010 following the birth of our little boy Frankie. We have a great reputation in the area for providing fun, relaxed and magical music classes for little ones and we are proud to announce that ALL OF OUR CLASS LEADERS ARE PROFFESSIONAL WEST END PERFORMERS EXPERIECED TEACHERS AND ALSO MUMMIES!!


Tim and I and all the team are professional performers and have performed in numerous West End and touring productions. Our careers have also taken us all over the world. Some credits include: Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, Mamma mia, Saturday Night Fever, Joseph and My Fair Lady to name but a few. We have performed alongside many well known faces including: Rowan Atkinson, Lee Mead, Gareth Gates, David Essex, Russ Abbott, Brian Blessed, Bodger and Badger and many more.


As professional performers we think it’s important to make our music session really special and exciting. The use of colourful percussion instruments, amazing puppets, great music and exciting weekly themes mean it’s not just the little ones who have a great time, but also the parents and carers who can’t wait till the next week to be taken on yet another musical journey!! The classes are highly educational and are fantastic learning experiences for the little ones. This early introduction to music encourages language development, listening and social skills, coordination, confidence, and much more. But most importantly our classes are FUN.


If you would like Caterpillar to come to your party we offer fantastic entertainment for your childs special day with parties tailored to suit each child.

A standard party lasts for 45 mins. This is usually enough time especially for little ones, but we can do a longer party if required at a small extra cost. We can do parties at your home, or at a hired venue and we will cater as to what party props are included in the party depending on the size of space. We can incorporate any sort of theme and cater for all different age groups. Please note if you are enrolled in a 10 week Caterpillar music course we can offer a great discount off our parties so if this is something you might be interested in let us know and you can attend a free trial class at any of our weekly venues to see if you might like to sign up and receive the discount.

Included in the party can be fantastic puppets (Caterpillar of course!!), party props, lots of dancing, the parachute (if space) giant birthday card, instruments, bubbles, a pass the parcel (each child wins a small gift) and a present for the birthday child too. Our parties are a really lovely way to make your childs party really special and one to remember!! Special rates for Caterpillar music customers.

Emily did my daughter's 4th birthday party and it was brilliant, all the children loved it and had such a great time. Emily had eighteen 2-6 year olds and kept them all engaged throughout. We have been going to Caterpillar music classes for over two years now so we knew Emily would be good but she really was amazing. If you're thinking of having a caterpillar music party I would highly recommend it.

Our little girl has been attending the classes since she was 9 months old and has grown to love music and dancing. She asks whether every morning is caterpillar day. Thanks Emily for the fabulous work!

My daughter has really enjoyed these classes. Emily is really engaging with the children ...as well as having a fabulous singing voice! The classes are great fun and very well thought out. Thank you!

My little girl Emily has just completed her first 10 sessions and we will definitely by going back for more! She loves the music and the different themes each week. It's a lovely relaxed atmosphere and you can tell all the other children love to be there too. Highly recommend these classes!

We have been going to Caterpillar Music since Chloe turned 1. She enjoys every minute and it is the highlight of our week. I like the way there is a different theme every week - Chloe gets such a lot out of it. We have also been to the drop in class on a Saturday so that Chloe can take her daddy which he thoroughly enjoys! Thank you Emily for providing such great classes!

My son Ben and I have only been going to Caterpillar Music for a couple of months but we love going. Emily is very relaxed and welcoming and doesn't push anything on Ben, who likes the sessions but is sometimes reluctant to join in. Emily always includes him but doesn't pressure him and he is slowly getting more and more into it, and he lives the Hokey Cokey best. I like the mixture of music that Emily brings and the different themes and songs each week so it's never boring and always inventive. My 9 month old daughter lives watching it all too and is increasingly joining in.

Tom and I have been going to Emily's Friday morning class for several
months now. It's the highlight of his week and he loves singing and dancing along with the other children. Emily's classes are structured enough that children have a sense of what's coming next, but they are also relaxed. Emily is brilliant at interacting with the kids and her skill and enthusiasm makes each class a fun learning experience. Her classes are a great way for children to learn about music and to socially interract with one another - I'd recommend them to anyone.

Alys and Ifan my 22 month old twins have been going to Caterpillar music since they were 13 months old, they have very different personalities yet they are both fully engaged and stimulated in every class. Emily's enthusiasm is infectious and she really lights up our Tuesday mornings. It is clear she has a background in performance as she is able to keep up the pace and project her beautiful voice throughout the entire session; a truly magical experience is created for everyone in the room. We love it!!

Grace has been going to Caterpillar music classes for about 18 months and she loves them - she gets very excited waiting for Caterpillar to come out of the box and Emily is brilliant at keeping the little ones attention and getting them involved. The classes are really unique with a different theme each week and lots going on... They have even taught Grace to tidy up! Grace even had a Caterpillar party recently for her 2nd birthday and it was excellent - everyone loved it! I can't recommend Caterpillar music enough!

Isabel has been going to Caterpillar Music classes with Emily for over 6 months now and loves every single class. As she has developed she has got more and more from the classes and now has a love of music and dancing. She has so much confidence from going regularly and just adores kissing Caterpillar. Emily has always been very welcoming and completely understands when the little ones will just not sit still! Caterpillar even came to her first birthday party making her the envy of all her friends

Review by Edith (age 3 1/2)

I LOVE Caterpillar music, I ask my Mummy most mornings if it's caterpillar day! I have been going to Emily's classes for nearly two years, I love choosing things to take to show Emily and Caterpillar and I love joining in with the class (especially the Hokey Cokey). Emily always has lots of interesting things to show us and lots of great songs. My Mummy likes taking me because it's different every week and she can see how much I enjoy it.

Emily's Class

We have been going to caterpillar music for over a year now and we look forward to our class every Friday :) it's great for me and my daughter to socialise, sing and play and we love Emily's singing too!!

I love coming to Emily's class on Friday mornings and see all the children having such a great time. As well as having fun they learn so much about music, rhythm, co-ordination, imaginative play and how to tidy up! Emily and Tim are very professional and fun. My grandchildren love the classes, little Bibi only 8mths joins in banging away with her shakers, I have bought her some for Christmas and some instruments for Ben also.. Can't wait for the party on the 18th!

Isla's first teeth came through on the day we came to the free trial with caterpillar music - I think it's a testament to how great the classes are that she was laughing and smiling. I love the flexibility, that you can miss a week or change which class you go to ... we've even been more than once in a week as Isla enjoys it so much. As well as getting great ideas for entertaining her at home. I look forward to enjoying stomping to the caterpillar music with Isla for a long time to come.

Caterpillar music

My son Josh and I have been going to Caterpillar Music in Teddington for about 6 months now. The classes are small, friendly and relaxed and I love the way he can explore the music and props freely rather than having to sit still (which he hates!). The weekly themes are great and Emily is lovely- definitely the best class we do!

It's a great class for learning through music and play and has been an excellent environment for early socialising. Evie has learnt to share and communicate with the other children

We really enjoyed every week and the different topics, each class was full of laughter and fun and relaxed

It's easy to tell she loves the class by the big grin and twinkle in her eyes as soon as the music starts
