Symphonic Tots and Kids was created by professional cellist, musician and teacher Marianne Tyler Brown. Live Cello, Kodaly Method, Hand Bells, Percussion and Visiting Professional Orchestral Instrumentalists are central to each class.
Symphonic Tots Weekly classes and one off workshops and concerts available to the general public for preschool aged children cover all areas of the early years foundation stage, promote school readiness , as well as providing information for parents with an inspiring team of musicians string, brass and wind. Class sizes are small (usually 12 and under) to maintain quality and interaction with every child and carer. Interesting and varied concert programmes with different musical instruments , basic musicianship training based on the Kodaly Method. The courses currently available to the general public (Sept to Dec 2016) offer one off workshops by popular demand. Please see our Classes and Bookings pages for details.
Symphonic Kids classes and courses are arranged through schools, organisations and community groups supporting the primary school curriculum offering a range of courses from instrumental tuition, musicianship classes and children’s choirs. Symphonic Kids have recently received support by Arts Council for their community outreach work with women and children living in hostels.

My daughter enjoyed it so much! A great day! Arts Council funded Community String Day – Outreach Projects London
The music was fantastic, you took all the pressure of me having to entertain every one away.
All the other Mums loved it – a real treat for babies and parents we have all been on a post party high.

After last weeks session with the harpist Luke really enjoyed announcing to us all that the Nutcracker
might sound like music but it’s actually a story and then proceeded to tell us all what a harp sounds like.
He’s really enjoying the group .Thanks very much for your approach. He really enjoyed the ukuleles and
your cello (even though he didn’t show it to you!). Thanks very much for making the effort with him.

Would just like to say how much we enjoyed the Russian Ballet session on Tuesday with Melissa and her
beautiful harp! We are looking forward to the easter theme!

Today’s session was great, lots of variety and movement. The kids had smiles on their faces and they
clearly enjoyed it. I’m not sure why Asim gets more shy each time he comes, but he really enjoys the
classes as he talks about them afterwards. Look forward to next week.
