About Me

Hi, I’m Mez and I run Caterpillar Music classes in Guildford. I am a Mum of 2 and have worked with children for over 20 years as a swimming, diving and trampoline teacher and for 5 years as a paediatric physiotherapist.
Watching and helping children learn new skills is a passion for me and as music ignites all areas of child development, Caterpillar Music Classes are the perfect choice for me now my children are at school.

Singing with your child is one of the most beneficial things you can do. Music helps the mind and body work together and promotes a child’s intellectual, emotional, social, motor, language, concentration and memory development (to name a few!). Most importantly though it is FUN!

My Caterpillar Music Classes always provide a friendly environment and a warm welcome for children from Birth - 4 years. Weekly themed sessions are carefully planned to ensure stimulation and excitement, but repetition of favourite songs and activities provides familiarity and allows for maximum involvement.

Classes are relaxed and children can join in as much or as little as they want, though the use of puppets, instruments, bubbles and a parachute mean that no one is too young (or old) to participate and enjoy the fun.

Mummies, Daddies, Grandparents, Childminders and Nannies all love coming to Caterpillar Music Classes and I’m sure you will too.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

The highlight of our week!

I was first recommended by a friend to try out Mez’s classes with my first son back in October 2016 and it was brilliant! So we continued and i returned in 2018 with my second son and loved every single class all over again, it was sad to ever have to miss one! Mez is so engaging from start to finish and every baby and child is made to feel significant and special. The themes and puppets were always thoughtful and encouraging and it was so lovely watching the babies’ reactions to Chris the Caterpillar :) Mez, you are fantastic in every way and i’m grateful for ever getting wind of you, we still miss the classes now!

Absolutely Brilliant

Mez is so engaging and amazing at remembering all the children’s names. I was on the waiting list for Mez’s classes, and after a term I got in. It was well worth the wait. Both myself and my child absolutely love her class, it’s very interactive, different topics every week and bubbles to finish with ( which all the kids love). I’ve been to other music classes and this is by far the best. Thank you Mez for your energy and positive vibes,all of which contribute to an engaging and fun class.

The best children's class around!

I have taken both my daughters to Caterpillar music since 2015! Firstly Lilia and then Rosie - both of the girls couldn't have enjoyed the classes more. Mez's classes are highly organised and so entertaining for children and parents alike! I found the classes helped boost their confidence and Mez just has a way of making everything fun and exciting. I will so miss our classes every Monday as Rosie is now off to Preschool. All I can say is thank you so much Mez & Chris the Caterpillar - please keep up the songs on social media (for me if not the girls hehe) xxx

We would recommend this class to everyone

We have been attending Caterpillar Music on a Wednesday morning since our daughter was just under three months old. She is now seven months old and loves the classes, showing more and more excitement for them each week. She LOVES Mez and Chris and is mesmerised by the pair of them. We would recommend this class to everyone and at any age!

Thank you!

My son Max who is 3 absolutely enjoyed our Wednesday class and it was great relaxation for myself too :) We both would sing the songs that we learnt there for the whole following week. Mez is amazing, full of positive energy and great ideas. She could easily work on some TV program for kids. She is just brilliant. We will miss her and Chris a lot.

My 2 yr old daughter absolutely adores Mez and Chris! Caterpillar Music is the highlight of her week. She can be a little shy but you'd never know it when she's in this class! Initially intended to attend for half a term but we just keep coming back!

Mez's class is single handedly the best baby class my daughter and I have attended and we've been to quite a few! We've been going since she was about 3 months and it's been such a joy to watch her development over the last 5 months. She is completely mesmerised by Mez who is full of energy and enthusiasm, and she has a lovely singing voice too! Every class is fun and engaging and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone wanting some musical fun for their little one.

My baby is completely mesmerised by Mez, who has such a lovely voice and engaging presence that she can silence a roomful of babies just by jingling a tambourine. Her classes are really enjoyable for the adults and the babies and I think that singing together has really helped my baby and me to form a close bond. Mez remembers every single baby's name and makes each of them feel welcome and secure so that they can join in confidently; she's pretty much a baby whisperer!

My mum takes my 1 year old daughter to Mez's class and both her and Granny absolutely love it. It is from these classes that she has learnt how to dance and whenever she hears music she bounces away!
We also recently asked Mez to do the music at my daughters 1st birthday party and it was a big hit with all the kids and mummies alike.
I think we will be doing these classes for a few years!

My daughter and I attend Mez's class and we love it! My little one enjoys the classes so much that we asked Mez to provide the entertainment for her 1st birthday party. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a mix of ages attending the party from 6 months to 3 1/2 years and they all enjoyed the party. We would definitely recommend this. Mez provides a fun and enjoyable experience which holds the attention of all the children whilst enjoying themselves immensely! Thank you Mez!
