Mini Beat Music by Caroline is a fantastic local music group for young children and toddlers. It has been running in the Hampstead/Belsize Park/NW3 area for years. The children absolutely love it!

Relaxed alternative music group, if you are looking for something a bit different. Been running for years! I sing accompanied by guitar involving both children and adults, drawing from all the music I have ever loved across the years. 

Music is my passion and although my sessions are for young children I aim to make them fun, lively and unforgettable for everyone. Always learning new songs, keeping the vibe fresh and exciting. Love to accommodate individual requests and no two sessions are ever the same! 


Caterpillar Music has been offering exciting fun music sessions across the UK since 2001. Montessori teacher and mother of two Anita Anand has recently brought these classes to North West London. Music classes encourage language, confidence, social interaction and musical skills in a fun and relaxed environment. Exciting puppets, colourful percussion, music making and favourite songs provide captivating 40 minute classes for babies and young children. Classes are held in Swiss Cottage, St. John’s Wood, Finchley and Mill Hill.
