Music for Little People provides class for under fives in developmentally appropriate age groups of 0-2yrs, 2-3yrs and 3-5yrs with qualified teachers and musicians. We offer classes for children with their parents or carers, music for nurseries, sure-start centres and preschool settings.
MUSIC FOR LITTLE PEOPLE is an original programme, developed to provide children with a fun, high-quality approach to learning about the language of music. The classes were established in 1983 by Karen Dickinson MA LTCL who designed the developmentally appropriate curriculum. Karen has a Masters degree in Music Education from London University and a Diploma in Music Education from Trinity College of Music, London and is a specialist in early childhood music.
Classes are of great benefit to your child’s general development and support learning in three “prime areas” for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.
These three crucial areas are:
? Communication and language
? Physical development
? Personal, social and emotional development.
In addition, the Music for Little People curriculum supports children in the four specific areas of:
? Understanding the world
? Expressive arts and design
Music provides huge potential for cross-curricula learning, enhancing vocabulary, assisting with reading, writing and spelling and introducing children to the sequences used in problem solving, reasoning and numeracy. The Music for Little People curriculum is a progressive one and through music your child will learn social skills, listening skills, and skills that help with reading and writing and lay the foundations for future learning. The smallest children come to understand a feeling of beat while being moved faster and slower by their carer. From the age of two they learn to recognize the puppets used in the classes and tap the rhythm patterns that their names make. The older children learn to recognize and repeat rhythm patterns relevant to that term's topic. The children also learn about notation - they learn that music is written from left to right, can determine high and low notes, and eventually "write" and "read" music on the board using the tonic sol-fa system.
MUSIC FOR LITTLE PEOPLE offers age appropriate classes for children aged 0-5 . Children, carers and the teacher are all involved in creating music together.
Classes are an ideal preparation for learning an instrument and introduce your child to the fundamental concepts of singing, rhythm and reading.
A wide range of exciting percussion instruments, puppets and colourful teaching aids are used.
