Symphonic Tots & Kids

Symphonic Tots is back! Well, technically we’ve always been here…as a registered charity, we have quietly been doing fantastic community music projects with Arts Council support reaching mums and kids in need. This important work continues now also extending to older age groups, encompassing Symphonic Tots & Kids. Marianne is excited to announce that in her 10th anniversary year of classes her team are planning some events for the public starting Autumn 2020! We are so excited about relaunching the original classical music concerts for 0-5 year olds and tuition by conservatoire trained musicians led by Marianne Tyler Brown. Stay tuned for more information!

Marianne set up the charity with her highly acclaimed music classes previously supported by The Arts Council, to enable disadvantaged families and children access high quality music tuition from herself and her colleagues. A brand new programme is being launched for Autumn 2020 for the whole community following this COVID19 period.

August 2020: I used to take the children to Symphonic Tots, when they were little. It was a lot of fun with instruments, and every week Marianne used to bring different guests to present an instrument and play for the children. Very enjoyable classes! Thank you for that Marianne! Gabriela

August 2020: I am a childminder and work with an Assistant. We used to take 6 children to weekly Symphonic Tots sessions. These sessions were different from other music sessions. The children had fun whilst learning. We used to sing all the favourite nursery rhymes but with a difference: using different musical instruments, for example the harp, violin etc. Marianne would arrange for musicians to come and play their instruments, eg the harp and the children would have a turn playing with a small harp. We look forward to classes starting again. Anna
