LEAP Success Stories
Bambino Beatz was created and is run by Shirley Sweet and Mike Wilson, both musicians and previously music teachers. They provide music classes along the Sussex South Coast from Hove to Seaford for 2 age ranges, birth – 2 years old, 18 months old – 5 year olds using traditional nursery rhymes, pop songs, classical and world music.
The music is chosen to link to their weekly themes, each week is different and they will take you and your little ones on a visual and audio adventure to many places, including outer space, under the sea, down in the meadow, exploring colours, birds and animals from around the world.
Bamino Beatz currently has music sessions in Peacehaven and Newhaven.
“LEAP has been a huge amount of help in so many ways, it’s impossible to list them all. The workshops are really informative, it’s great working with other people who are starting their own business so you can support and encourage each other. The help after completing our business plan has been invaluable and I doubt my business would have survived without LEAP”
