0-3s class at St Margarets, Easter Road

March 10, 2018 § Leave a comment

Hi All

Looking  froward to next weeks 0-3 class at St Margarets, I wanted to clarify some changes about the way we organise payment:

£5 per child (grown-ups free), payable on the day in cash or BACS by arrangement with Oliver, class leader. No formal booking required, spaces are available on a first come first served basis. A small number of pre-paid spaces are available through Hoop.

We are lucky to be able to keep the same prices we have always charged but we will now charge £5 for extra siblings. Adults are free.

Hope thats all ok, any questions please ask

See you soon

Hi Everyone,

Im pleased to announce we have now graduated to the main church hall at St Margarets Easter Road (with the baby grand piano) on a regular basis, It was decided that its easier for access and warmer. Handy as arctic storms are apparently on the way..! I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow 10-1050.

More good news:

The price stays at £5 per parent/child. Still a drop in. I plan to take some pictures tomorrow so please tell me if you and child are not up for being on camera.

We now have more Happy Ears 2 CDs available still only £5 also😃

See you soon


If you haven’t done so already check out our band camp page, with some releases now unavailable on CD:

“Happy Ears One” remastered

December 17, 2017 § Leave a comment

Its the end of there term and the end of 2017!

100_4993Its 6 years since Happy Ears 0-3s classes started at the Calton centre (This a picture from one of our first classes- all these babies are now in P2!). To celebrate I have remastered the debut Happy Ears album- known as The Green Album, due to the green sleeve of the original CD

The recording includes class favourites “Mandolin Chicken”, “The pirate song” and “The Spaceship song” but also less well known but well requested ditties such as “You can’t comb your hair with a ricecake” and “Trampoline”.

You can download this exclusively at the Happy Ears Bandcamp site, just follow the link.

The download includes a previously unavailable bonus song recorded with staff and learners at Kaimes school where we posed the question “Do animals make different sounds in different languages?”

Dates for the new year 0-3 classes at St Margarets will be added to the “Latest Fliers” page soon. Until then have a fantastic holiday and I hope Santa brings you plenty of presents.

See you all soon
