Music FunTime

Music FunTime

"I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning." --Plato

For the first time, we offer a research-based program especially for young children from ages 18 months to 9 years old.  This curriculum is modeled after Johns-Hopkins research which has been shown that early childhood musical  development leads to a greater understanding of math and science early on as well. In this program, children learn how to play an instrument and read music notation and symbols while developing their cognitive and reasoning skills.   Through this program, children will have a head start for when they progress to private lessons.

The  Curriculum

‍During classes, one way children will be learning music theory  is through fun crafts. They will be learning rhythm, pitch , music notation , symbols and key signatures in a manner similar to the way they learn numbers , colors, and letters.  They will learn to play on  different rhythmic and pitched instruments to implement this new knowledge  in real time. Through this, they are  applying what they learn which enhances their ability to learn and reason.   The children will play in groups, which develops social skills, confidence and learning how to play music along with others.   They will grow with music!

The Instruments

Throughout the year in class, we will give a  bag of several instruments  to take home. These are yours to keep so that your child can practice  with you and continue the joy of learning. The instruments include: Rhythm sticks,  a Tambourine,  Harmonica, and a Flutophone.
