News: Rhythm Time Music Franchise Owner Celebrates 1st Birthday

Michelle and her Rhythm Time teachers celebrating their first year

Successful music franchise owner and teacher to babies and young children, Michelle O'Grady, is celebrating her first successful year as a Rhythm Time franchisee.

Last week, all of her babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers in her classes helped her to celebrate with special birthday songs, a cake sale and raffle.

Michelle, previously a teaching assistant for 15 years, set up her local Rhythm Time music franchise in the Tamworth and Sutton Coldfield area a year ago. In that time, the number of babies and young children enjoying her music classes has seen significant growth.

It's been a wonderful year meeting all the children and their parents," she quotes. "It's amazing to be able to see how music can help a child's development, from babies right up until they start school. Many of them will go on to learn a musical instrument. I'm also very excited to be introducing additional music classes in Tamworth and Sutton Coldfield and expanding my team further," she adds.

Rhythm Time's unique set of music courses have been specifically written by Kathy Doolan (previously Head of Music at a Scottish school and graduate of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama). The courses have been created to help every child's development and are aimed at different age groups, specifically: music classes for babies (from birth to 15 months), music classes for toddlers (15 months to 3 years), and music classes for pre-schoolers (3 to 5 years). Kathy is a strong advocate of music being crucial in helping to develop a child's speech and language from an early age and this forms a key element in all the classes.

Parents are invited to enjoy a free trial session before they decide whether they would like to book up for further sessions.

Rhythm Time is an established company with franchises all over the UK. All of Rhythm Time's franchisees share a passion for music and a love of working with children. Owning a Rhythm Time music franchise also enables them to enjoy a career that fits around their own family commitments.

Approximately 10,000 children currently attend Rhythm Time classes all over the country.
