Music with Monica

Welcome to Music with Monica. We are a Gold Coast based Music Early Learning Program, offering music classes for babies, toddlers, young children and their grown ups. Our programs are based around live, developmentally focussed musical play, delivered by Registered Music Therapists. We pride ourselves on fostering a positive, nurturing environment where children are the centre, praise is paramount, inclusion is embraced and FUN is a must! Music with Monica also offers a professional Music Therapy service to young children with special needs.

Our Services

We can’t wait to meet you and your little ones at our Gold Coast based music classes. Our classes are for babies and young children aged from 0 to 4 years (and their grown-ups, of course).  We are Registered Music Therapists who use live music (we sing and play guitar for the whole session) to engage your children in musical play that is designed to be developmentally focussed and responsive to your child’s requests. Research suggests that children thrive in a setting that is child-led and, while we follow a session format, we are not bound by a curriculum, so we can follow your child’s lead.  We nurture and encourage learning in a safe, positive environment where children are the centre, praise is paramount, inclusion is embraced . . . and FUN goes without saying!!
