Music has an extremely positive effect on a child’s development in many ways. Research has proven beyond doubt that singing and repeating rhymes with movement has an extremely positive effect on a child’s development.
In weekly 40-minute sessions, you and your little one will have the opportunity to make and enjoy music together in a fun and friendly setting in an engaging introduction to music. The emphasis is on fun: tickling games, bouncing songs, play songs and lullabies which bring music to life for our young musicians. It is never too early to start singing with children – they will listen and learn.
EMMA, MINI MUSIC MAKERS PARENT
“My son started these classes as a baby and loved them so much we continued attending until he started nursery school. I am in no doubt that his love of music and song started here. I also saw real benefits in terms of his language development and him learning to share and interact with others.”
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.
Benefits for your child
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.
Benefits for you
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.
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 and are a mix of nursery teachers, music specialists and freelance professional musicians.
