A recent study by the Institute of Education brought the very good news that playing classical music to young children improves their listening skills, concentration and self-discipline.
We love to sing at Little Notes and often notice how the natural rise and fall of song leads to children becoming expressive in their speech and, later, reading. With an emphasis on musical pulse during our sessions, children are given a natural boost in fluency when speaking and reading.
At our newborn classes, parents have a lovely time singing simple songs, perhaps to a repeated syllable (often of the baby’s choice!). This communication develops as the children grow, with many of our songs based on questions and answers, creating vital interaction within families. Most importantly our musicians communicate with an international language using their instruments. You will be amazed at your child’s response.
