Why should I take Music Pups?
EARLY CHILDHOOD IS THE CRITICAL TIME FOR LEARNING MUSIC
There’s no easier time to develop pitch and rhythm skills than during the first years of life.
Nurturing music development in early childhood opens the door to a lifetime of understanding and enjoyment of music and greater ease when learning to play an instrument.
IMMERSION IS THE BEST STRATEGY FOR LEARNING MUSIC
Children learn music the same way they learn language - through immersion. In each class parents and caregivers learn playful ways to make music and movement a part of their daily lives. Award winning recordings and songbooks are provided that turn music time in the car and at home into learning time.
EXPOSURE TO A LARGE MUSICAL VOCABULARY IS ESSENTIAL
Playful and interactive songs are included in a wide variety of scales, meters, and musical styles from around the word. Each element of musical vocabulary they hear now expands their musical horizons.
BENEFITS OF MUSIC EDUCATION GO FAR BEYOND MUSIC
The research (link to research blog page) is in. Music helps stimulate brain development like nothing else – improving social skills, self-control, and brain plasticity. But perhaps more important than all of this is the joy families receive from the special parent/child bonding time Music Pups provides.
