Maria Montessori once insightfully stated that “play is the work of the child.” Play has countless benefits which, according to pediatrician and professor Kenneth Ginsburg, make contributions to “the cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being of children.” In our Kindermusik program here at Piano Central Studios, we realize the enormous worth of letting kids be kids and guiding them in creative exploration, play, and discovery as the way we teach them to learn and love music.
Here are several of the ways your child will enjoy playing to learn every week in our Kindermusik classes.
From going on a boat ride, to splashing in puddles, to exploring the jungle on a safari, our classes transport your child to a different time and place with each new unit. As your child continues to develop his pretend-play abilities, his imagination and cognitive abilities will stretch and grow with the creative and inventive activities every week in class!
Alternating between sitting and standing in class is important for keeping your child happily and actively participating as well as helping develop her spatial awareness. Your child will enjoy playing peekaboo with scarves, rolling and spinning hoops, jumping like a frog, and even joining hands with friends for a circle dance. Your active mover will be working on refining gross and fine motor skills and responding musically, all while engaging in outrageously fun play!
Kindermusik classes spark your child’s creativity by encouraging his ideas for varying an activity. Your child might try shuffling around the room during a dance, playing instruments high and low, or singing both quiet and loud. Your young Einstein will be inspired by the endless possibilities of playing and moving with music!
Every Kindermusik class provides something interesting and exciting for your child to explore through an engaging variety of instruments, songs, movements, or rhymes. Your child will love learning more about the world, about music, and about himself as he discovers new things every time he steps into class.
Week after week, you and your child can eagerly anticipate Kindermusik classes knowing that there’s always fun to be had, valuable lessons to learn, friends to meet, and sweet memories to make – all in a playful environment that brings out the very best in your child.
