Tin Pan Annie Music

Music & Singing for 2 – 4 years

Fun, exciting, interactive live music classes accompanied by real guitar, with songs, stories, props, puppets & bubbles

Classes are jam-packed with action songs and rhymes, both well-known & Tin Pan Annie originals, composed to introduce children to the shape, timbre, dynamics and rhythm of music, so important in the development of language and speech. We encourage jumping, clapping, dancing, singing & lots of fun.

Annie has 22 years experience of making fun music with children, whilst playing guitar & hopping up & down. She is a music therapist & passionate about the importance of quality live music education for all children. Each week she introduces a different theme, which aided by giant colourful posters, props, puppets and stories that emerge from Tin Pan Annie’s special box, helps to stimulate children's imagination. Children become absorbed by all the visual & aural stimulation. Confidence & social skills develop as toddlers are encourage to join in, share, interact. The highlight of your week.

Annie is just great. The babies - and mums! - love her. A good singalong too

October 2018


Attended a single session with an 8-month-old


Annie is great and has lots of enthusiasm however the class is very expensive for half an hour. More instruments would make the class more fun so the children are not just watching.

I cannot rate Annie's classes any higher. She has that very special magic that makes children love her. I can't walk past St Barnabas without my children wanting to go in to to see Annie and her lovely bright puppets, costume and guitar, and my son's little bed is covered in her stickers.

My second daughter absolutely loves seeing Tin Pan Annie every week just as much as her brother and sister did. and often Her first word every morning is "Annie Guitar"and we constantly have Tin pan Annie on Spotify. These classes are so full of fun and jam packed that the children are hooked from the moment they run into the hall.
