Rattle & Roll Music Sheffield: Baby and Toddler Classes

Rattle & Roll Music was founded in 2003 by Anne, a new mum who had tried a number of music groups in the area and realised a new style of music class for the under 5’s was needed. And so… Rattle & Roll music was born! Rattle & Roll Music classes follow a different theme every week such as under the sea, transport, space and have great fun learning through music all about it. Classes are so engaging for little ones, packed full of percussion playing, dancing time, bubbles, parachute time and much more. Rattle & Roll Music Sheffield: Baby and Toddler Classes

What to expect

Rattle & Roll Music Sheffield: Baby and Toddler Classes

First of all expect a warm welcome from Sue, Amy or Anne who will talk you through where everything is and how it all works. You have time before your class to settle in and have a play in our fantastic playroom. Listen out for the bell, this means it’s music time which is set in a separate side room.
Each class is structured just like a good kids tv programme. The main points of the class are in the same order so the children gain confidence with familiarity but the themes, instuments and songs change so it’s not boring for the grown ups.
Each class consists of a warm up, instrument time, dancing, bubbles, parachute time and finally relaxation.
After the session, a snack is offered out in the playroom which is a biscuit, rice cake or piece of fruit. There is then time to have another play. The playroom is open from 9.30 -12.15 so dependant on class time you can stay and play all morning.

It’s important to know that…

The first class you attend is a taster which can be booked and paid for as an individual session. You are not required to sign up for an entire term and there are even pay as you go options available on selected classes. Please see the timetables as the pay as you go is not available for all classes.

Get to know Anne from Rattle & Roll Music

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

My name is Anne and I am mummy to 6…. That’s right 6 amazing children from 6 months – 15 ½ years old. I have 4 girls and 2 boys one of which has ASD, which has been a learning curve!

What was your inspiration to start Ratlle & Roll?

From a young age I was trained in theatre arts and performed up to the age of 16 on stage. I left home when I was 16 and ended up working at a call centre to pay the bills but my heart was always in performing. When I was 17 I had my first child Lily and went to a few music groups in the area which were not for me so I asked a group of friends to come and give my group a go and from there it grew.

Why do you recommend your classes & what makes them different?

My classes are upbeat and have a real feel good factor, not only for the children but for the adults too. They are educational following a theme each week and with use of the playroom it’s a real hub for meeting new friends and getting to chat and have a cuppa while the kids play. I always felt annoyed when I went to a class but had to leave after the session.

Could you tell us about your favourite thing to do with your family in Sheffield?

Not technically Sheffield but I really love Chatsworth it’s a big hit with the kids especially the younger ones. They love the farm part and also the play area,  the big kids would much rather be at the cinema with friends these days.

If you could give some advice to anyone who is interested in starting their own baby or toddler class, what would it be?

I have run Rattle and Roll for 15 years in September, it is the most rewarding and joyous thing to do with my life. I’m never bored and I’ve been using some of the lesson plans since I started, I really love what I do and am so lucky to work with ladies as passionate as myself.

I would say to anyone thinking about setting up any business in general its not for the faint hearted. You live and breath your business and I always say to people it’s like having a baby.

If you’re not passionate about what you do it just won’t work.


Thank you Anne!
