The Concerteenies – big music for little people!

We present experienced, professional musicians, playing music never dumbed-down for developing brains

About

The Concerteenies is the brain child of Katie Pryce, an experienced French horn player, as well as jazz and cabaret performer.

The Concerteenies introduces babies and toddlers to the exciting sounds of classical, jazz and world music.

Study after scientific study illustrates that these kinds of music help with children’s brain development – but that’s no excuse for being boring. The Concerteenies are first and foremost entertaining.

Katie hails from the United Kingdom and has played with orchestras as diverse as the London Sinfonietta and Britten Sinfonia, to ground-breaking work playing with jazz innovators, Snarky Puppy and the Bill Laurence Project.  She also has led thousands of children in music workshops since graduating from the Royal Academy of Music, London.
