Bumble Beats

About Us

We offer a 45min multi-sensory music session for your child in which they get to experience a social and stimulating setting, as well as develop crucial communication and language skills through music, sensory and creative interaction. It is said that exposing our children to music during their early development helps them to learn the sounds and meanings of words. Their bodies and minds are encouraged to work together. Music also contributes to the major development of motor, literacy, intellectual and emotional skills, preparing your child for school.

 

Each week will see different themes, topics and age-appropriate material within the class as well as a range of musical styles from the latest pop hits to classical melodies, nursery rhymes and of course our favourite…musical theatre! We have a wide range of sensory play equipment, our very OWN mascot “Bumble”, his team of “mini-Bumbles” just for you and we guarantee smiles, knee bops and toe tapping all round! From puppets to parachutes, maracas to “make your own musical instrument”, we have something for everyone and plenty of photo opportunities. Each week you get to take away a “Well Done” Bumble Beats sticker as well as your own personalised Bumble Beats achievement sheet, which you can get stamped each week you attend and receive a very special treat!*

 

*Once you have signed up to Bumble Beats you will receive a personalised Bumble Beats achievement sheet on your first session. After completing 7 sessions and getting 7 stamps on your sheet, you will receive a special gift from all of us at Bumble Beats.

About Tracey Hutchinson

 

I was born in Grimsby but grew up in Peterborough and was very lucky as a child to attend schools which were huge advocates of music and the arts and in turn really encouraged my love of performing to develop and come through.

 

So much so that in 2006 I secured a place at the Guildford School of Acting where I studied for 3 years, graduating in 2009 with a BA Hons degree in Musical Theatre. I went on to have a 10-year professional career, appearing onstage in the West End (Love Never Dies, Adelphi Theatre. Made in Dagenham, Adelphi Theatre) and also in various UK tours, regional theatres (Legally Blonde, Hairspray, Don’t Dress for Dinner) and pantomimes. It was an unforgettable time in my life and career, of which I cannot wait to tell my children about one day. I gained invaluable experience and skills within music and performance.

 

After meeting my now husband James, I decided I wanted to settle in one place and have a family…it’s not easy living out of a suitcase! So, I bravely “hung up my performing boots” and moved back to my hometown of Peterborough. In 2018 I began working in a primary setting as a drama specialist, working with children aged 3-11yrs. This is where I have been for the past 3yrs. With my experience as a teacher and professional performer as well as recently becoming a new mother, I feel as though I have been able to put together an extremely fun, tailored, age appropriate and professional sensory music programme for you and your child and cannot wait for you to experience it with your buzzy little bees here at Bumble Beats!
