Happy Beat based in Johannesburg is a music and movement programme with many added educational aspects which encourage the overall development of children.
Children are taught in a creative, fun way that helps them to absorb and retain what is learnt in class. The skills that children learn, develop them as a whole. Physically, children develop flexibility, muscle strength, balance and body awareness. Mentally, integrating both sides of the brain for focused learning and emotionally building children's self confidence and self awareness. They are encouraged to be individuals and are given a voice and an opportunity to express themselves. It is equally important for children to participate socially in activities and learn to work together as a group. We provide a wonderful platform for your child to grow and learn in every way.

Happy beat is a culmination of our passion, joy, experience and love of children and music. We would love to take you on a journey of how Happy Beat started and to where we are now. Catherine has always had a love of music and has expressed that through her journey in teaching children, she has taught various music and movement programmes alongside a music career involving a background in classical and jazz piano training as well as performing professionally as a percussionist. In 2012 Catherine drew form her passion and experience and created Happy Beat. Soon after Catherine branched out on her own she partnered up with Nicola and together they spent many hours creating a beautiful curriculum and still today continue to grow it. Nicola has always found joy and love in working with children and has many years of experience teaching and caring for children. Nicola has a degree in psychology which has infused into creating our curriculum and gaining a greater understanding of children and the impact of music and movement in their world. We’ve been around for many years but for us it’s just the beginning, let the music begin!
