Concerteenies is an award-winning producer of musical events and activities for young children and their adults in South Yorkshire and beyond. We present concerts, creative music projects, and online events in early years settings (nurseries, schools, childminders), within the community (in cultural and education spaces), and at home, in addition to providing training and resources. Young children are at the heart of our work, with everything we do about bringing generations together to share, enjoy, and have fun through music.
We believe music:
engages and entertains supports learning and developmenthas a positive effect on wellbeingenhances the lives of children with special educational needsbuilds bonds between children and their adultscombats isolation and connects communitiescan be fun, relaxing, exciting, calming and everything in between!
Concerteenies provide high quality musical experiences from classical, contemporary, and pop to folk and jazz. Polly and her team are great at engaging both children and parents in the session through a mix of stories, music, and sensory experiences. I found the company to be very professional and highly skilled at what they do. The session was well organised, and we received some lovely feedback from the families that attended:
“Beautiful storytelling, babies were mesmerised.”
“Beautifully talented musicians entertaining the babies and maintaining their attention perfectly. Amazing setting with very friendly staff.”
“Really, really lovely session – enjoyed the music – both me and my baby. One of the best sessions we’ve been to.”
Grimm & Co very much look forward to working with Concerteenies again in the near future.

Recently we had a visit form Concerteenies. They performed a musical version of the story ‘The Dinosaur Department Store’. The children loved listening to the story, joining in with the actions and finding out a little about the cello. The performance was well prepared and delivered beautifully. In advance we were able to learn the songs and watch an online version. This meant that children were well prepared for the visit. I loved that there are online supports for children with SEND so that they know what to expect. On the day, one child was very anxious and members of the team were happy to meet him and talk him through what would happen – this meant he could enjoy the performance with his peers. This was a lovely experience for our F2 and Year 1 children.
