More musical fun on way

A POPULAR music group for parents and their children is expanding.

Musical Minis is launching an extra class in Wolviston due to popular demand.

The group has run classes from Wolviston Community Centre for the last two years and has decided to introduce a new class starting on Wednesday, May 4.

Musical Minis uses a variety of songs, music, instruments and puppets, to help babies, toddlers and children improve their co-ordination, and communication skills.

Katherine Munro, started the Musical Minis franchise for Teesside and South Durham after attending a class in Durham with her eldest son Archie.

She said: “Seeing how much my son enjoyed the classes and watching him develop and become more confident was a pure joy to watch which inspired me to become a franchisee myself.

“Children and babies respond naturally to music and the sessions are designed in such a way to encourage early communication, promoting confident, sociable and creative children.” She has already received a number of enquiries from parents, who want to attend the new class.

Karen Sherr, founder of Musical Minis, said the sessions are structured to encourage children to discover sounds, explore instruments, and make friends in a relaxed group setting.

The new class will meet at Wolviston Community Centre, Old West Hartlepool Road, Wolviston, every Wednesday at 11am.

Places are limited to 15 per session.
