Kindermusik® For Children ages 0 - 5
At Melodia Manor we believe in the importance and joy of music education for all ages. For the 0-5 year olds we offer Kindermusik, a holistic developmental program with music at it’s core. With this program your child will not only learn the core elements of music, but also develop their emotional, physical and mental abilities. The online Home Materials means that this is not just a class once a week, but an on-going learning experience.
The study, practice, and discipline of making music gives the brain and body a complete workout. Activities are designed to encourage multisensory learning, which employs and integrates several senses at once, stimulating multiple areas of the brain. Children experience music of varying styles, genres, and cultures. They interact with other peers and engage in movement, rhythm, and vocal activities that develop far more than just music skills. Our approach to early childhood education primes children for success in school and in life.
Each week in class we combine your pre-schooler’s natural love of music, storytelling, and imaginative play with age-appropriate activities that introduce early music concepts and foster independence, social and emotional skills, language growth, and self-control. We also connect you with other parents who share in the wonder of parenting a preschooler. Parents join class for the final activities. The Kindermusik Home digital home materials bring the music, activities, and each month’s story everywhere you go. The repetition enhances the learning—and the fun!
From the moment you became a parent, you wanted the best for your child. In class, we engage your child in music and movement activities that also promote language, social and emotional skills, early math and early literacy, physical coordination, creativity, and more. Plus, your child will learn basic music vocabulary and notation—all setting the stage for future school success and formal music lessons. Parents join the fun for the final activities. The Kindermusik Home digital home materials extend the benefits all week long with music from class, activities for the whole family, and each month’s story.
