An innovative and proven early childhood curriculum, has music classes for kids 18 months to 7 years old. Music FunTime is not a simple play group where children sing, dance, jump & play instruments. The program is based on Johns-Hopkins Research that children 7 and under can learn to read music notation. Including symbols, play instruments, while fostering their ability to grasp math and science.
Rachmaninov was one of the most influential composers of his time. This simple adage about that “can’t get enough” feeling that comes once one is truly addicted to music. That is possibly his greatest contribution to those who encounter it’.
Studies from top research institutions indicate that exposure to music and an understanding of music at an early age enhance learning in all spectra. Kids who are comfortable reading music learn to read language much more quickly. While the symbols are different, the systems are comparable.
Not all children are born into households that are saturated with music. That is completely natural but that shouldn’t mean that music should be a foreign concept. We hope they pick up around middle school when local programs begin to offer band and orchestra. Why would that system work?
By that age, kids neural systems are fairly well paved. The likelihood that they will learn music quickly or adjust to music theory and tactile practical application is greatly reduced! Dance Classes are a great way to start your child’s learning.
