MUSICAL MAYHEM is an award-winning live music experience giving babies and toddlers in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire a lively introduction to traditional, modern and original children's songs. 
We run regular term-time drop-in classes in Princes Risborough, Haddenham, Chinnor, Thame and High Wycombe and we are also available to hire for private bookings and toddler parties.

We are called Musical Mayhem for a reason - we embrace the chaos that comes with little people! The children don't have to sit still on your lap - we let them wriggle, dance and express themselves and we do love a bit of cheeky heckling from the audience. 

Our 45-minute drop-in classes are run by a team of friendly local mums with musical talent. Live musical accompaniment is provided on various instruments including guitar, keyboard, harmonica, melodeon, ukulele and (occasionally!) trumpet. 

The classes are suitable from birth up to school age and are highly interactive with colourful props, hand puppets, masks, scarves and parachute games to bring the songs to life. The children get to try different percussion instruments including egg shakers, tapping sticks and jingly bells.

There is a different theme every week with a mixture of new songs and old favourites. Children love repetition and knowing what comes next so there are some songs we sing every week. 

We're always busy doing something silly like posting letters for Postman Pat, cooking knitted sausages, drinking pretend tea, catching fish, waking up the badger, getting nibbled by our croc, squashing bumblebees and digging up felt carrots. We also have a magic chicken who can lay eggs if you sing nicely! 

As well as stimulating the cognitive development of babies and young children, we aim to make Musical Mayhem a special, shared experience for you and your little ones that will inspire in them a lifelong love of music and give you many happy memories of singing together.  

We always encourage the grown-ups to interact with their children during the session but there is time to chat after the music when we serve up free tea and coffee with drinks and biscuits for the children. 

All our sessions are drop-in so you don't have to worry about signing up in advance - just come whenever you like and we'll always be very happy to see you! 
Tickets are £6 per family and this includes the drink and snack.

Musical Mayhem is owned and run by Monica Nelson and Emma Voss.

Research has shown that babies who take part in interactive music sessions smile more, communicate better and show more sophisticated brain responses to music.

Singing together in a group is also good for grown-ups and has been shown to help ease the symptoms of post-natal depression.
