Free Family Party – 2nd July

We are delighted to announce that we are performing at Camp Bestival this year!

About Ukeboxbaby

Hi! We are two local mums, Honey and Zee, who love music and are on a mission to spread the joy of music to growing minds.

Honey is a singer who has performed with the likes of Saint Saviour, the lead singer of Groove Armada, Shlomo, the world famous beat boxer, has sung at festivals and nightclubs in London including Lovebox Festival as well as doing a variety of backing singing on albums.

Honey learnt to play the ukulele 8 years ago at London’s world famous ukulele shop in Old Street, ‘The Duke of Uke’.

Zee is also a local mum who is passionate about the arts and learnt to play the ukulele with Honey. Zee is an expert props and costume designer for our baby and toddler classes which adds something truly magical and brings our musical stories to life.

In our baby and toddler classes we perform ukulele children’s songs as well as your favourite pop songs, whilst telling a variety of famous children’s stories.

Early Years Foundation Stage

We work to follow EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) in these classes. Our classes incorporate EYFS guidance on Communication and Language, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the world, Expressive Arts and Design, Communication and more.

Why learn the ukulele?

Making music has been proven to be so good for your well being. In fact, research has revealed that it:

  • Boosts brain function (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
  • Strengthens speech processing (North Western University)
  • Magnifies memory (Frontiers in Neuroscience)
  • Promotes empathy
  • Fosters maths and science ability (The journal of Educational Psychology)
  • Improves motor skills (Concordia University in Montreal)
  • Elevates mental health
  • Relieves stress
  • Boosts immune function

We could go on…the benefits to children and adults alike are endless. It’s important to highlight that it is making music, not listening, that causes these positive effects.

The ukulele is a small, portable, relatively cheap and relatively easy instrument to master. It’s a great instrument to start to learn.

Playing the ukulele makes me happy. It might make you happy too, so why not have a go today and release your happy?

Quotes from happy parents

“My 2 year old LOVES Ukeboxbaby and really looks forward to it.There is plenty of interaction and lots of instruments provided to keep the little ones engaged. We practice at home and it is really encouraging his love of music. Honey and Zee are great facilitators, I highly recommend coming along!”

Kate & Lennox

“This is Robert’s absolute favorite music class! He truly enjoys playing the instruments and listening to music with other children, the sessions are interactive and loads of fun. We are looking forward to attending the next term.”

Lilly comes home buzzing about her uke lessons. They are, hands down, her favourite after school club. We can’t wait to see her and the rest of the group perform at the end of term
