Live music for babies and toddlers

Joyful music for under 5s and adults in Bedminster

I’m glad you found me and my guitar. I’m Esther, and I’d like to introduce you to a host of wonderful songs for your family to sing and move to together. Come to my Rhymetime music sessions for babies, toddlers and preschoolers in Bristol. and listen on Spotify. I’ve been making music with Bedminster’s toddlers for twenty years and love meeting families of all shapes and sizes. I run Rhymetime for under 5s, and a Singing in Harmony group for adults who learn by ear and want to sing a range of music. All abilities welcome!

Join in the fun!

My sessions are all at Bedminster Methodist Church Hall.

My regular groups are at 10am, Mondays (except on Bank Holidays) and Thursdays. Rhymetime IS on over Easter so come and give it a go!

These sessions are for under-5s so we’ll be getting up and moving around but babies are also very welcome to come along. However, if you have a baby who doesn’t walk, you might like to try the baby Rhymetime on Thursdays at 10.45am.

Occasionally, I’ll be running sessions on other days, and I’ll be letting everyone know about those through my mailing list. If you sign up I can tell you about extra sessions or any last-minute changes.

Where to find me

Rhymetime sessions for toddlers and babies are in Bedminster Methodist Church, Bristol, in the main body of the church. There’s lots of room to bring your buggies in and run, jump and dance. We’ll start the session by sitting on the floor (grab a chair if you’d prefer) and singing lots of familiar songs, along with modern classics. At some point we’ll get up and move around, but it’s a relaxed session and it’s fine if your child doesn’t want to sit still. Find out more.

Good to know

All sessions are drop-in and you can pay with cash or card. It’s £5 per family and you are welcome to bring supporting adults if you want to. There is no extra charge to bring twins, siblings, grandparents or anyone else in your family.

Listen to my music through through Alexa by saying: “Alexa! Play Esther Steward.”

Other singing sessions

If you come to both Singing in Harmony at 9.15am and stay for Rhymetime too, it’s just £7.50
