ZINGZILLAS fans living in Horsham may have seen a familiar face in Wednesday’s show this week.his week.

Horsham-based Little Notes founder Lou Bradbury appeared on the CBeebies children’s music show with her professional recorder quintet Fontanella for the programme’s ‘Big Zing’ performance about families.

Lou teaches recorder at Christ’s Hospital School, and is a director of Little Notes with her husband, opera singer Mark.

She said appearing in the show was ‘right up her street’.

“At Little Notes, we’ve had the privilege of working with over a thousand families in Horsham since we started out in 2005,” she said.

“We’ve had so many precious musical experiences with even the tiniest of children and countless magical moments with their parents and grandparents too.

“We’ve certainly witnessed first hand that the message of the ZingZillas’ song: ‘Tiny or Tall? It doesn’t matter at all.’ is a good one.”

The episode featuring Lou and Fontanella is available on BBC iPlayer until January 31.

Litte Notes runs music classes for babies, toddlers and pre-school children, teaching music through creative play.
