About Us

Bea Couch

is a fully trained professional singer and piano teacher. She has sung to hundreds of children, parents and nannies as Baby Music has grown, through personal recommendations, over the last 17 years. Her courses are continually evolving, enriched by each new musician who becomes involved and contributes. Bea always works with talented accompanists who share her gift for connecting with children and her passion for giving your child the best musical start in life.

Bea works for the love of children and music, not simply for the money, and runs Baby Music as a thoroughly ethical business, charging fairly, renting premises from local charities to provide them with secure income and helping gifted musicians through hard times.
