Happy beat is a culmination of our passion, joy, experience and love of children and music. We would love to take you on a journey of how Happy Beat started and to where we are now. Catherine has always had a love of music and has expressed that through her journey in teaching children, she has taught various music and movement programmes alongside a music career involving a background in classical and jazz piano training as well as performing professionally as a percussionist. In 2012 Catherine drew form her passion and experience and created Happy Beat. Soon after Catherine branched out on her own she partnered up with Nicola and together they spent many hours creating a beautiful curriculum and still today continue to grow it. Nicola has always found joy and love in working with children and has many years of experience teaching and caring for children. Nicola has a degree in psychology which has infused into creating our curriculum and gaining a greater understanding of children and the impact of music and movement in their world. We’ve been around for many years but for us it’s just the beginning, let the music begin!
Little Earth Kids Preschool absolutely loves Happy Beat! From the moment Nicola walks in the gate the kids are in awe with the happiness and excitement she brings. The little ones absolutely love her class and it has been such a pleasure having Happy Beat a part of our school! Thank you Nicola and the Happy Beat team for the amazing and wonderful service you offer.
We have had Catherine and Happy beat at the school for 13 years. She has always been enthusiastic and excited about her music lessons. Catherine is always well prepared and uses a wide range of musical instruments with the children and the children always have their own instruments to play. Her lessons are fun and very interactive. She engages well with children of all ages and the children respond well to her. Happy beat is one of most popular extra murals and I would not hesitate to recommend Happy beat to all school as an extra mural.
