Music with Mummy | Katie & Ali
Hello, we are Katie and Ali and between us we run Music with Mummy in and around Newbury. As well as Newbury we have been running classes in Hungerford, Didcot and Wallingford successfully over the last few years and can say with certainty it is the BEST job in the world!
Between us we run sessions on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and hope that you can join us for some of our amazing music session happening weekly in and around your area.
Here’s a little more about us…
I started my journey with Music with Mummy when my little girl Mabel was just 6 weeks old. I found the classes to be such a lifeline for me as a new mum, firstly the joy of spending precious time bonding with my new baby but also to simply get out of the house (we all know that struggle) and socialise with other like-minded parents.
With a background in singing and a passion for children’s education in early years, I felt starting my own Music with Mummy franchise an easy decision to make. I am privileged to be able to share so many firsts with families – first word, first step, first clap… and getting to know groups of children and their carers is so rewarding. I have seen first-hand with Mabel the wonderful development stages she has gone through whilst attending classes and now can’t wait to share that same journey with you and your little ones!
Since I left my post as a Drama Teacher, there was something missing from my life. Joining a choir helped fulfil some of this, as I love to sing. But I still needed a place to be creative, to be active and work with children. Then I remembered my time with my two children at Music with Mummy. I took both Eli and Ava to Music with Mummy, and it soon became a highlight of our week.
It was a time to just be with my babies, not worry about chores or other responsibilities, but just delight in their smiles and curiosity. My son loved the noise he could make and the energy of the sessions. My daughter loved the singing and learning the actions, in fact she still remembers nearly all of them 6 years later!
I loved the most welcoming, safe and joyful atmosphere. I remember watching in awe as both children settled down for a cuddle at listening time and stayed still for a whole minute! I feel so lucky to be part of the team. I am really looking forward to this new adventure with you all.
