Katie Andrews took over Music Bugs at the beginning of March, after the Peterborough franchise went up for sale.
However, lockdown was announced on March 23, meaning no classes could meet, and since then Katie has been running the music sessions virtually, with a Song of the Week video posted every Thursday.
In a post on social media, Katie said: "Thank you, thank you, thank you! Taking over Music Bugs just before lockdown hasn’t been easy but you guys have been amazing and shown me so much support, whether it be liking and sharing my posts or joining in with my Song of the Week sessions. Not to mention the gorgeous photos and messages of encouragement I get! Feeling very grateful for you lovely lot and can’t wait to get the green light to start classes for you all."
Research has shown that music and singing are an excellent way to develop language and communication skills in young children.
Information about the Music Bugs classes - when they can return - will be posted on the Music Bugs Peterborough Facebook page.
