It's lovely to see everyone after the Easter break. I hope you're enjoying the new set of songs. Do let me know if you have any favourites that you'd like me to bring back. I will be back at the Gorringe Park Pub, Tooting this Saturday 10.30 (6th & 20th May) so come along or send your other half! I get a good number of dads which is a great way of them meeting other dads if they're a bit nervous of coming to a room full of women!
It's nearly Easter but I am doing classes this week commencing 3rd April. So do come along on Tuesday 4th to The Gorringe Park Pub 10.15 for mixed age class 0-4yrs, and 11.15 for babies only.
The last class before I take a break is Friday 7th April 9.30am at Graveney & Meadow bar/restaurant on Tooting Broadway. Still only £5/£8 for 2 siblings drop-in.
There may well be a little chocolate treat for those who come along too. Yum yum!
Classes will start back on Tuesday 25th April. See you soon.
CHANGE IS HAPPENING ON FRIDAYS!
Over the next couple of weeks there are some changes happening to my Friday Graveney & Meadow class. The pub have been brilliant to me for 3 years but is finding that it's not quite working for them.
Happily, instead of having to the fold the class (which is still obviously a possibility!), we have agreed to try changing things around. They would like to be able to set up proper brunch service in the back room from 11am. I think we can all appreciate that it has to make business sense for them.
So - from Friday 10th March I will be starting my class at 9.30am so that I finish early enough for the staff to set up the room prettily for brunch service. There will also be a children's menu. You are then welcome to go back in to order food or stay in the front area to have coffees etc. I don't want to upset anyone, but it can look a bit cheeky to bring in food for children over 1 year old if they can eat off the menu (and there have even been some Starbucks coffees!)
So you can get your quick caffeine fix #beenupallnight, I will provide free filter coffee and tea set up for you to help yourself. Fancy teas and coffees can still be ordered at the bar. There will be a biscuit jar too for fair useage.
Buggy parking will be over to the left hand corner behind the bar area. The staff need to be able to get to the kitchen and sort deliveries and sadly we can't employ a lovely valet parking attendant!
I now have the facility to take card payments! Woo hoo!
I do hope that you will all be ok with these changes and spread the word.
Apologies everyone but I'm ill so I have to cancel all the classes at The Gorringe Park Pub for Tuesday 7th Feb. I don't want to pass on my lurgy to all your little ones or you.
However, I assume I'll be better by Friday and will do my class at Graveney & Meadow 10.15am. I'm also doing Saturday 11th Feb at The Gorringe Park 10.30am.
FEBRUARY HALF TERM 2017
I will do classes Tuesday 14th and Friday 17th February so come along. Older siblings are welcome if they're happy to join in. It's only £8 for 2 siblings.
Hoping this post works as the last one didn't!
I will be doing all Christmassy classes this week so dress up in your jumpers, hats and put the little ones in their Santa suits (it's the one time you'll be able to!) There may be a little chocolatey treat after too.
Classes for the rest of this week:
Friday 10.15am at Graveney & Meadow, Tooting Broadway.
Finishing for Christmas on Saturday 17th December at The Gorringe Park Pub, Tooting (near Figges Marsh) at 10.30am.
Both are great places to have coffee and/or brunch after so arrange to meet a friend before Christmas.
Classes will start back as normal on Tuesday 10th January at The Gorringe Park Pub.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL.
I've noticed that now it's getting so cold and often raining, people are queuing outside the venues. As both Graveney & Meadow and The Gorringe Park pubs don't open officially until 10am, it would seem sensible to start my Tuesday and Friday classes at 10.15am. This should give you a chance to order your coffees (and not bring in Starbucks takeaway cups which you can understand the pubs feel is a bit cheeky and could jeopardize my classes!) and not freeze! See you soon!
Excited to announce that after such an amazing turnout for my special Tootopia session, I will be starting fornightly-ish Saturday morning sessions at 10.30am at The Gorringe Park Pub, next to Tooting railway station. 30 spaces £5 or £8 for 2 siblings. Cash only.
So if you've gone back to work or want your other half to bring bubs, come along for breakfast and then join us upstairs - first come first served but you can pay early downstairs in the pub for a place. The pub opens 9am for breakfast .
The next two sessions will be Saturday 19th November and then 3rd December 2016.
Please do like my Facebook page to keep up to date. I look forward to seeing you Tuesdays at The Gorringe 10am and 11am (babies), Fridays at Graveney & Meadow (doors 10am) or at a Saturday session. Keeeep singing!
There will be:
No Tuesday classes at The Gorringe Park Pub until Tuesday 23 August.
Friday classes at Graveney & Meadow, Tooting Broadway will be on Friday 5th.
UPDATE: sorry but there will be no classes now until Tues 6th September. Enjoy the summer sun!
Welcome back to a new year. It's been great to see so many familiar faces. I particularly love seeing how the children have grown and enjoy every step in development they make. I never tire of seeing little ones faces light up in enjoyment from making music together with family/carers. Classes have been very busy too so thank you for coming along and joining in. Remember you are your child's first music teacher so show them how to sing out and don't worry about your voice.
So it's the Christmas holidays and classe will be closed until Tuesday 4th January 2016. Have a great Christmas and New Year!
Hi, I'm Sally and I've been running RnBs for over 11 years. I absolutely love seeing the little ones enjoy music and develop over time.
