Where are classes held and how do I get there?

Classes are held in the foyer of The Menuhin Hall within the grounds of The Yehudi Menuhin School. The car park is just off Cobham Road with a direct path from the car park to the Menuhin Hall where lessons are held. Parking in the car park is free.

Access from the carpark to the Hall is via a short set of stairs, however we have 6 disabled parking bays around the rear of The Menuhin Hall with level access if you require it for buggies/pushchairs or any other reason.

What refreshments and facilities are available?

The Menuhin Hall café/bar is open before, during& after classes if you would like to purchase teas, coffees, juice or snacks. A water dispenser is also easy to access should you wish to fill up water bottles.

We also have baby changing facilities easily accessible to the class space.

Can I breastfeed by baby at the venue?

You are welcome to feed before/after class if you need to. We have lots of seating around the Hall foyer and space upstairs on our mezzanine if you prefer a more private location.

Do I need to bring anything to class?

Please ensure all participants (adults & children) have socks. Everyone participating in the class should ensure they are in comfortable clothes, as we’ll be on yoga mats and there’ll be moments of both movement and stillness. Refreshments are available from our café/bar but please do bring water bottles.

We supply a yoga mat per child, soft toys, instruments and all the other equipment your little ones will be interacting with throughout the class.

Can I bring my other family members to classes?

The Menuhin Hall café/bar is open before, during and after classes if grandparents or other family members wish to come and watch. In the younger classes (6 months-3years) accompanying adults are asked to actively participate in class and so unfortunately other children are not able to attend classes, however in the older classes (3+) parents of pupils who are ready to join in independently are welcome to sit in the café area or get some work done in our quieter mezzanine space, if the space is available.

What is the best way to book your classes?

We recommend booking a full term of classes. The structure of our curriculum means that your little one will be building on what they learnt week after week so to get the best out of our classes, it’s ideal if you’re able to commit to a weekly class time for the full term.

If you’re not able to commit to a full term however – not to worry! We also offer one-off class tickets or you can book 5-classes in a row.

All classes and ticket types can be booked through Happity.

Do you offer anything for children 4 years+?

Yes! We are currently developing a follow-on programme known as “Mini Menuhins” forchildren aged 4–7 years old scheduled to be piloted in September 2023.This programme will expand on the songs taught in Baby Menuhins and begin to introducemore formal instruments into the classroom whilst expanding on our existingelements of yoga and mindfulness for all our pupils.

The final stage of our programme will focus on 7-11years olds, and is scheduled to be launched in late 2024. If you would liketo register early interest in our programme please drop us a message butclicking the button below.

Do you run a summer music programme or summer classes?

At the moment the school does not run a summer music programme however our site is rented out by other music organisations for residential courses and competitions.

Does my child need to learn/be planning to learn an instrument?

Absolutely not! We’d love to see many of our Baby Menuhins go forward feeling excited and confident to pick up an instrument.

Pupils who continue on to our Mini Menuhins (4 to 7 years) will begin to learn an instrument with us through group instrumental lessons, though we do also welcome pupils who have started learning already.
