About Music for Miniatures

Music for Miniatures is for YOU and your little one. It is a series of short live concerts specifically designed for parents, grandparents and carers to enjoy in the company of babies, toddlers and young children (aged 0-4). Performed by professional musicians, we showcase a huge variety of music and instruments with classical music, folk, world and jazz. And yes, you'll love it!

The best thing about a Music for Miniatures concert is… we don’t mind noise! Babies can sleep, cry, babble and crawl whilst toddlers are free to  and enjoy in their own way without being told to “ssh”. Older little ones can dance, play air-instruments and we don’t even mind if the audience needs a nap!

We know that it can be difficult to find something everyone can enjoy together. Our concerts leave the participation up to you. You can sit and snuggle or get up and dance. There's no pre-learnt routines/songs and definitely never any 'Wheels on the bus"!


At a Music for Miniatures concert you can experience the magic of live music with your little one and enjoy it together.


Live music in nurseries

and pre-schools

We can give an interactive concert anywhere! Our musicians are experienced at performing in the smallest of spaces so if you're looking for a treat for your children, get in touch! We travel across the south west (and beyond) and can do themed concerts to suit you.


Schools, nurseries, pre-schools we're here for you!!

Why Music for Miniatures? 

With two young children of her own, professional oboist and pianist Julie Payne felt there were no opportunities to take her children to local concerts where it didn't matter if her 18 month old wandered around and her 4 year old asked loud questions. 


Music for Miniatures was 'born' in 2014 to give parents and carers a chance to enjoy high quality live classical in the company of their babies/toddlers/pre-schoolers without having to worry about wriggly bottoms, crawling around or the odd squeal. "Amazing music in a relaxed atmosphere" pretty much sums up Music for Miniatures. 


Julie believes that children should be exposed to high quality, live music from a very early age and that concert-going should be as common as swimming lessons for young children to help inspire them, encourage creativity and help them to listen with open ears.

Music for Miniatures started in 2014, became a CIC in 2016 and a CIO and Registered Charity in 2019. We are proud to provide live music for children and families across the south west region and beyond.
