About Me

My name is Cheryl and I have run my Caterpillar Music sessions in Nottingham for over 11 years now. Although I am not a classically trained singer, nor a professional actor, I choose to run my classes with all of the energy and enthusiam of the average 4 year old !Lots of jumping around and dancing and you simply do whatever the music makes you feel !

I love working with children of all ages and singing to them on a daily basis has got to be the best job in the world !

If you come along to a Caterpillar Music session, you will see that music and singing encourages and develops children in so many different ways - in confidence, in socialising and sharing, in learning to work within a group and in just expressing how they feel ! Try it and you will see.

Cheryl is amazing

Cheryl is amazing, she has a natural infectious energy and she gets all the children involved making them all feel special and included. My son has so much fun at her classes, it is definitely his favourite baby group that we go to.

Children love it.

We have been taking our grandchildren to Cheryl's sessions now for a number of years first with our granddaughter and now with her little brother, both children love it. We would recommend her sessions to anyone wishing to take their children to a music session.

Cheryl’s energy is brilliant

Caterpillar Music with Cheryl is one of the best things I have ever done with my daughter. We have been attending her class in Bingham for about 18 months and we look forward to it every week. You can see all the children developing their confidence, working together as a team, making friends and feeling happy and safe in a wonderful free spirited environment. It’s great to see all their happy faces. Cheryl is like the pied piper - the children just gravitate towards her....she is great humoured and there’s always a giggle with the parents as well. Highly recommend - Cheryl’s energy is brilliant and her love for the children makes the class what it is.

Caterpillar Music with Cheryl is the best

Caterpillar Music with Cheryl is the best. Me and my daughter Sadie go every week and it’s become one of our favourite things to do together. Cheryl is wonderful with all the children and they all seem to gravitate towards her with her ability to unite the group. I can’t recommend this class enough.

We love being part of the Caterpillar Music family!

Caterpillar Music with Cheryl is the highlight of our week! I have just started bringing my third child along to join in the fun and have seen first hand how adept Cheryl is at making sure every child, no matter what age, is involved and feels part of the session. Each week has a different fun theme for the children to explore with Cheryl and they love sharing in the familiar songs and routines that are used. It is a joy to see my children develop and grow each week under Cheryl’s guidance; we love being part of the Caterpillar Music family!

You won’t find a friendlier welcome anywhere!

We love Cheryl’s classes! I have been attending with my little boy since he was 4 months, but we wish we had found the classes sooner. We have so much fun, Cheryl’s enthusiasm and joy is completely infectious. You won’t find a friendlier welcome anywhere! From the very first time my son met Cheryl he has adored her, beaming smiles every week! She makes sure that every child feels known and has chance to share what they’ve bought for show and tell, play with a nursery rhyme prop or choose a song. We love the relaxed atmosphere in the classes, the children are free to dance and sing if they want to, or just sit and play an instrument/explore with the puppets/snuggle their grown up. I’ve absolutely loved watching my little baby grow and develop at Caterpillar Music over the last 6 months, at the start he used to fall asleep in my arms near the end, now he just wants to crawl into the middle of the room! Along the way we’ve learnt some new songs and borrowed lots of ideas to use at home. I’d recommend Cheryl’s classes a thousand times over, she is a true gem!

A special class led by a special lady

Our son has been attending Caterpillar Music for 2 years now. Cheryl is always full of enthusiasm and fun week in week out. She is able to captivate the entire room (both children and adults). She makes all visitors feel welcome and included; mums, dads and grandparents etc. We look forward to going to Caterpillar Music every week and can’t recommend Cheryl’s sessions highly enough. Thank you Cheryl!

Five Stars!

We love going to Cheryl’s Caterpillar Music classes. She always includes all the babies and children so everyone has a great time. Cheryl’s enthusiasm makes these classes and you can be confident of a warm welcome. It’s been wonderful to see how much my two year old has grown and learnt from going to Caterpillar Music. Highly recommend - five stars!

Highly Recommended

I started Caterpillar Music with Cheryl about 18 months ago and intend to keep taking my little boy until he starts school. I think I enjoy it as much as my son does and my husband loves to come along too when he can. Cheryl has a very special gift with children and interacts with them in such an amazing way, being sensitive to each child's personality and confidence. I love how she structures the sessions and her energy is incredible. I'm pretty sure she's responsible for my son learning to count and tidy away! We love going and would highly recommend her classes.

We love Caterpillar Music!

I’ve been attending Caterpillar Music for four years, firstly with my daughter and now my twin boys. All three of my children love it. They are encouraged to interact, share, sing, play instruments and most importantly, have fun. Cheryl is a very special lady and takes time to interact and bond with every child in the class. I would thoroughly recommend it!

Love these classes

Cheryl's classes are very special. Each and every child is made to feel important and part of a lovely, welcoming group. Cheryl has a natural warmth and enthusiasm that engages the smallest babies to the most energetic pre-schooler. I have attended her classes for over 5 years with both of my daughters - who both absolutely love Cheryl. Our weekly sessions have provided a lovely opportunity for the girls to learn about friendship and sharing as much as singing and dancing. I'd heartily recommend Caterpillar Music.

Thank you Cheryl - you’re amazing!

It must be 7 years since I discovered these classes with my eldest and 7 years on i’m still going with my youngest - I think that says it all. I adore these classes and so have all 3 of my children despite all having different characters. Her energy, enthusiasm and genuine interest in encouraging each child is endless. I can’t recommend these classes enough. Thank you Cheryl.

Cheryl is amazing!

Took my two girls to Cheryl’s classes and they loved it, she manages to include all the kids in one way or another and has such positive energy! She was also great with helping me cope with a newborn and under 2 year old which made it a class I always looked forward to!

Cheryl's classes are brilliant

I am a local childminder and discovered Cheryl at West Bridgford Lark in the Park. I have been attending her classes with three children in my care over the last three years. Cheryl’s classes are brilliant, my little ones absolutely love going and have all grown in confidence over their time there. Cheryl is so good at involving each and every child that attends her classes. I look forward to sharing Caterpillars with more children in my care in the future. I highly recommend Caterpillar Music.

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!

Cheryl is a star, the way she has got to know my son Will, who has been going to Cheryl's class since his first birthday, is incredible. She puts so much effort into each and every child, and her boundless energy, enthusiasm, and complete desire to make everyone around her happy is just inspirational! I've never known anyone like Cheryl, and I doubt I'll ever meet anyone like her again, she's simply fabulous!

The highlight of our week

Me and my daughter absolutely love this class. I've been taking her since she was 6 weeks old, now she is 7 months. Since the first session Cheryl always made sure to include her, coming over to talk to her and giving her teddy's in the songs. Now Ruby sits with Cheryl to be part of it. Ruby has always been very engaged, moving her legs and arms. It has done wonders for her development. Glorious, soulful, crazy chaos that Cheryl runs with such energy and love. It's so much fun to watch all the children up, dancing and singing. Always eager to show Cheryl what they have brought. It will be a sad day when I return to work and can't take Ruby, it is the highlight of our week. Thank you Cheryl.

A lovely way for children and adults to sing and play together

I have been taking my granddaughter Jessie to Caterpillar Music now for two years, ever since she was 11 months old. Cheryl's classes are fun, vibrant and energetic and every child is able to participate at their own level. Cheryl realises that some children are a little shy and reticent at times, but encourages them,and waits for them to decide when to join in (Doesn't take too long!!) A lovely way for children and adults to sing and play together. Thank you Cheryl.

The Joy of Tuesdays

Tuesday morning has become the highlight of the week for my 18 month Granddaughter and her Nana. We enter into a world of music, dance, mime, laughter and overwhelming love. Cheryl is inspirational! 
Her boundless energy and joy for her little caterpillars is infectious. Thank you Cheryl so much.

Thoroughly Recommend

I started caterpillar music with my 6 month old this term and we have both really enjoyed it. Cheryl is brilliant with the children and includes all ages, from babies up to preschoolers in her class. I took my 4 yo along with us for one session and she enjoyed it so much that she wants to go regularly next term. Thoroughly recommend.

She's the best!

Well, what can I say about Caterpillar music with Cheryl! Well simply she’s the best! Would you believe that this is my fourth child attending Cheryl’s classes! Cheryl is inspiring, incredibly talented and both children and adults cannot fail to love her. The lessons are so much fun and she has such a gift at encouraging and developing the children’s confidence in taking part. I as an adult love going, never mind my nephew! Cannot recommend highly enough!

Wonderful

This is by far mine and my sons favourite class. Cheryl is so welcoming. She has such a lovely nature with the children. The shyer children that stay on their parents knee, she mentions their name so they feel included and part of the class. My little boy took about 10 sessions to finally leave my side, but now he’s up dancing, playing instruments and even holding Cheryl’s hand! I find myself singing and bopping along too! A lot of the children have obviously been going to the class a long time, which is a real credit to Cheryl.

Cheryl makes it magical

We recently joined Caterpillar Music with Cheryl and although my daughter is only 12 weeks old, she absolutely loves it! She is mesmerised by Cheryl and loves all the singing. Her focus is amazing and she is so intrigued by everything. Cheryl has a natural way with children and teaches them so much during a session; not just music but also how to be kind and share, how to be helpful and how to tidy up! It is such a worthwhile experience for the children in so many ways and Cheryl just makes it magical.

Bursting with energy,excitement and love

My daughter and I have been attending Cheryl’s class since she was 1 and she is now almost 4. She is always excited when Monday’s come around again. Cheryl works so hard and makes every week a fun and exciting place to be for the children. They all love her and she equally loves them. She gives her all, week in, week out. Each week has a different theme and the children love doing their show and tell. I would highly recommend this class to anyone and am almost certain that once you’ve been to one you’ll be hooked.
