Providing LIVE music to babies, toddlers & preschoolers to enhance both physical and social development and helping them to build a musical foundation for life!
At Melody Tots we enjoy singing familiar nursery rhymes and fun interactive action songs LIVE led by Ruth from Melody Tots. Every song features either percussion instruments, fun actions or sensory props for your child/children and you to enjoy TOGETHER! It's never too early or late to enjoy music!
We offer sessions for 0-5s in Fareham, Stubbington & Portsmouth (Hampshire). We also have a session each week just for 1s & unders on a Monday. For our session times click here. For our prices click here
Mostly pay as you go sessions
We meet during term-time and also some holidays too.
Most of our sessions are pay as you go, no need to book our music group in advance. Just turn up & enjoy! See 'Prices.
Our only bookable 0-5s sessions are for parties (such as Easter and Christmas) and our holiday sessions. We always provide plenty of notice when our bookable sessions are coming up! We often provide Early Bird Discounts for our holiday sessions! We also welcome older primary aged siblings at our holiday sessions so they can see what their younger siblings get up to have fun making music as a family.

Ruth also has lots of experience organising events...she has worked for several charitable / not-for-profit organisations as an Events Organiser which is handy for organising Melody Tots Parties (established 2016).
