Music FunTime™ is more than a playgroup where children sing, dance, jump, and play instruments
Music Classes for Preschoolers engineered by Music FunTime is an innovative, structured, and progressive curriculum derived from Johns-Hopkins Research exploring the magical connection between math & science through music for children newborn thru 7 years of age. Children learn to read music notation, rhythms and symbols, and play the instruments of their choosing.
Through small preschool, kindergarten & early elementary group music classes in a classroom atmosphere, children use musical crafts, worksheets, games and instruments in a fun exciting way to explore and nurture a strong music foundation which becomes a way of life, thus, gaining all the benefits of uniting both hemispheres of the brain.
Did you ever consider the skills your child uses when he/she sings a song such as "This Old Man?"
Your child is:
Matching and comparing (through pitch, volume and rhythm)
Patterning and sequencing (through melody, rhythm and lyrics)
Counting numbers and adding
Music is considered a right brain activity, while Math is a left brain activity. When combined, the child is holistically engaged not only in the realm of thinking, but in all the other domains of social, emotional, creative, language and physical development. Together they make a complete developmental package.
Parents are constantly amazed at how their children develop these skills so quickly. Children become more confident, communicative and attentive, in addition to a growing appetite and appreciation for various types of music and musical instruments. You and your child will look forward to continuing on the journey of discovery and learning with Music FunTime.
