Tots Tunes 

Shake it like your mama would (and papas too!)

Tots Tunes are interactive, energetic parent and baby (0-5s) classes combining learning original tunes and songs from around the world with a bit of a workout!  Tots Tunes is for local parents who want to connect with other like-minded people in the neighbourhood and have a bit of fun, listen to and sing some quality ‘non-baby’ acoustic music all accompanied by live string instruments and djembe.

Shakers say...

"I feel like I have done something creative" -  Tots Tunes Dad

“Uplifting and energising, Tots Tunes is one of the best music classes for babies and toddlers I’ve been to"  - Tots Tunes mum

"My favourite thing about this class though, aside from the fact that it wasn’t just another hour of my life lost to nursery rhymes, was how into it everyone – and that includes parents and babies – was. Between the beautiful live music, the welcoming teacher, the element of interactivity and the fast pace, there wasn’t a lot of time for anyone to get bored or feel like a tone-deaf dickhead with two left feet"  Emmy - Bablands.
