“Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music” – Sergel Rachmaninov
Rachmaninov was one of the most influential composers of his time, but is is 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 because while the symbols are different, the systems are comparable.
Not all children are born into households that are saturated with music and that is completely natural but that shouldn’t mean that music should be a foreign concept that 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, and the likelihood that they will learn music quickly or adjust to music theory and tactile practical application is greatly reduced!
Open up a world of possibility for kids to experience Music FunTime artistically. When kids are excited to grasp new concepts, new concepts are easier to grasp.
Music FunTime, an amazing program taught throughout the United States and Canada, offers preschool music classes that are unique and proven. Music FunTime is a multi-level, structured, comprehensive, progressive curriculum that incorporates music theory (teaching how to read staff music, rhythm, note values, time signatures, etc) and application (rhythm instruments, keyboard work, sing along, music appreciation, movement), while accessing learning through the “play” center (themed games, accessible visual and auditory aids), beginning at age 18 months, It is a fantastic system predicated on the notion that condescending to children accomplishes nothing, but meeting them where they are, gives them the wings to blossom.
Open up a world of possibility for kids to experience Music FunTime artistically. The preschool music program is a precursor for learning an instrument, joining band, orchestra or choir, etc., because the kids already read music and are less likely to be intimidated by aspects of performance. We exponentially increase their ability to learn, period. When kids are excited to grasp new concepts, new concepts are easier to grasp.
We are living in a really scary time for education right now, with Common Core and extreme standardized testing pushing the classroom teachers to reduce creative projects, take away play aspects in the public school and push kids down a conduit of learning that has already been scientifically and categorically proven to be unsustainable and to be less advantageous for their future learning. Less creative kids become less creative adult thinkers and therefore less innovative contributors to a workplace, particularly in an increasingly freelance, creative solutions, entrepreneurship based economy.
But there is a choice and that part is learning…Music FunTime graduates are exceptionally well prepared to continue into private lessons and have music be a part of their lives.
