About Me

Hello!

My name is Shumi and I run Caterpillar Music classes across Clapham and Wandsworth.
My classes are fun, friendly and lively and will engage your babies and young children through music.
This is an exciting way to enhance learning through play, spark their imagination, practise their listening skills and encourage confidence and the ability to socialise.

Each 40 minute class has been carefully designed for children between the ages of 0-4 and has been a hit with parents and their children since 2001.
An exciting new theme is introduced each week, such as the jungle, farm and pond life. We explore these using fun nursery rhymes, energetic action songs, captivating puppets and colourful instruments. It's lovely to see your little ones having so much fun!
I have always enjoyed music -singing and performing in particular. So when friends (some are teachers) asked me to run singing and drama classes at their school summer holiday camps, I happily joined in . I have volunteered in many school camps over the last 12 years across London and have mainly worked with children between the ages of 3 and 6.
I have also organised a camp myself in North London where the main focus was to have lots of energetic fun through music, sports and games and to encourage team work and good sportsmanship.

My main experience with babies, however, comes from being mum to my twin boys, now aged two and a half. When they were little, I wanted to find a class that had everything, something visual and musical with lots of variety - a tall order, but we found it with Caterpillar Music!
I have two very different children and I found these classes suited them perfectly as my older twin loved to have a good old bash with all the instruments, but my younger son enjoyed all the actions that came with the songs and loved how animated we all became. I use the 'tidy up' song when we clear up toys at home and sing the 'hello' song to them when I see them first thing in the morning.
I enjoyed the classes so much, that I decided to run my own.

So come along and have some fun with your little ones and enjoy a FREE trial ..... Look forward to seeing you!

My son has been going to Shumi's group now for the past 13 months. She is energetic and enthusiastic at every session. Both my son and I look forward to the group, such a lovely way to spend a morning together.

Shumi always has amazing resources and a huge variety of songs which my son loves. The children are encouraged to dance sing and move about the room freely, a real plus for my energetic son.

We have tried other music groups but Shumi's group is the best by far. It really show that She cares a lot about each child's individual experience.

I could not recommend her more highly.

My daughter Polly has been coming to Shumi's Caterpillar class since she was 3 months old and loves it 2 years on. She gets excited every Monday morning when I tell her we are going to music. Offering a wide range of songs, new themes each week, puppets, toys & props as well as musical instruments Shumi has it covered. Polly has developed so much over the classes I remember trying to get her to lie down for sleeping bunnies which seemed impossible now she is straight down on the floor no hesitation!!! We will continue to come for as long as we can and look forward to introducing Annabelle her little sister to Shumi's great class. Highly recommend giving it a go.

We've been going to Shumi's music class for over two years now and it's still one of the highlights of our week! Shumi has so much energy and enthusiasm and manages to captivate the imagination of children of all ages. I'm also amazed at how she remembers the names of all the children in the group! My eldest son is almost 2 and a half and it's a joy to watch him dancing, singing along and generally having a fantastic time each week. I'd definitely recommend Shumi's classes!

Shumi takes each class with so much energy and she manages to entertain children of all ages. My kids have been entertained by Shumi since they were 6 months old and they are still loving her at over 3 years old!

Shumi 'performed' at my daughters 3rd birthday party and she had over 15 children enthralled by her activities!

I cannot recommend Shumi more highly, not only is she a lovely person to deal with, but she obviously loves what she does and it shows in each class. There is also a discount for twins and siblings which is a huge bonus for our family!

''Thankyou so much for making my son's 1st birthday such a fun day!! The entertainment you provided was exactly what I had in mind - the babies/children loved all of it and the parents loved seeing their babies have fun . You obviously have a special rapport with children but a couple of my friends also commented on your incredible voice and your acting abilities! ''

"My daughters LOVE Caterpiller Music! It is so much more than just a music class as the children let off steam in the big space of the hall and jump about to the music and learn about colours, numbers, animals and new songs. Each week the different theme keeps it exciting and Shumi is great at including all of the children, even the more timid ones and always remembers all of their names! It is a really uplifting class for children and adults alike as we all join in!

The tidy up song is my personal favourite, I have attempted it to introduce it at home in the hope of a tidier playroom - doesn't seem to work so well there though without Shumi's dulcit tones!

Another added benefit is spotless brand new loos with changing facilities and it is always easy to find a parking space too! Oh and it fits in so well with the lunchtime naps!"

Caterpillar Music Customer, UK,

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

Caterpillar Music Customer, UK,

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

Caterpillar Music Customer, UK,

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