What is Mini Music Makers?
Mini Music Makers run weekly 40-minute sessions giving you and your child the opportunity to make and enjoy music together in a fun and friendly setting. There are currently 9 Mini Music Maker groups across Scotland, which have been specially developed to give babies and children, aged 0-5 years, an engaging introduction to music making.
What happens at Mini Music Makers classes?
At Mini Music Makers the main emphasis is on learning subconsciously through fun activities. Your child is sure to enjoy participating in circle games with parachutes, singing songs with puppets, tapping drums and shaking shakers with the group. You and your child will learn a range of new bouncing and tickling songs, nursery rhymes and circle games that you can take away and enjoy at home too.
How will your child benefit?
The structured NYCoS method offers your child a progressive journey through musical learning. Research in this area has shown that early musical activity can have huge benefits in many areas of child development including language, motor skills, memory and concentration. At Mini Music Makers your child will be given access to these benefits whilst having fun and interacting with other children.
How will you benefit?
This is not only an opportunity to develop your bond with your child as you explore music together, but it is a chance for you to meet and socialise with like-minded parents of other young children in a relaxed environment.
Who are the leaders?
Our enthusiastic class leaders are fully trained in the unique NYCoS method of early years music education, based on the teachings of Hungarian Composer and Educator Zoltán Kodály. Our leaders come from a variety of backgrounds but most are trained musicians or nursery teachers.
