Hello and welcome to Pop up Percussion! We offer wonderfully creative music workshops for 0-6s in and around Manchester. We also teach the Ukulele for 4 - 8s as we find it is a great first instrument, sparking a love for learning music that often lasts a very long time!
Our workshops run in two forms; Saturday morning music - a monthly session, 10 throughout the year and weekly sessions throughout the term. The workshops allow children to confidently explore the world around them, tapping into the different areas of their development through song and instrumentation. Each workshop has a different theme from ‘Outer Space’ to ‘Fairy Tales and Story Time’ encouraging curiosity and imagination through musical play with our beautifully handmade finger puppets, props and our Nino percussion instruments (percussion made to the same high standard of adult instruments but for tiny hands in fun bright colours!). We tend to avoid backing tracks and play and suggest songs and music that will help engage, lift and soothe to regulate your child’s mood - we have a song for every part of the day from brushing teeth to falling over!

Our passion is early years. From a very young age children have a natural love for music. We nurture this love and use it as a tool to support as they develop and learn in the world around them. Motor and social skills, listening, memory and concentration are all areas that benefit from musical play. We have a lovely community feel to our sessions where our teachers, friends and families share and support our ethos of providing a fun, safe environment where children can confidently explore and create, becoming independent little musicians.
We currently have four locations - Heaton Moor, Chorlton, Altrincham, West Didsbury - and will be popping up in other areas soon. Watch this space!
