It has been said that music is nourishment for the soul, here at Little England school we start that nourishment from an early age thanks to the Kindermusik program.
Kindermusik is the largest program of music and movement in English for children in the world, and has more than 5,000 educators active in more than 66 countries. Little England is the largest centre of Kindermusik in Italy and has achieved the “Master status” for the high skills of the educators and the variety of the program offered.
We strongly believe in the importance of music education for children, as confirmed by the studies on the effects of music on the brain published in the Nature Reviews Neuroscience Journal: “The effect of musical education suggests that, similar to exercise and its impact on the well-being of the body, music is a resource that invigorates the brain for auditory fitness, and therefore requires, on the part of society, a re-examination of the role of music in the formation of individual development.” Music is excellent exercise for the brain, especially those areas that influence listening, reasoning and language skills. With this perspective, parents who expose their children to musical activities, such as Kindermusik, are offering them a distinct advantage in global development and in their academic success. The areas of development that begin in these young minds will increase the capacity for memory and listening and creative learning with benefits even in children with learning difficulties.
Kindermusik at school
All children enrolled in the Nursery and Preschool participate in Kindermusik lessons during school time.Each Kindermusik course helps to fully develop the child’s cognitive, social, physical, emotional and linguistic skills. All this happens in an educational environment full of energy, imagination, music, dancing and fun. As the child grows up, the courses introduce simple concepts and musical terms to prepare them for a more formal musical training path.
