Why does music play such an important role in your child’s life? Well, simply because music is amazingly therapeutic! Don’t believe us? Next time, try calming your fractious little kid with some soothing melodies, or hand over a set of drums to your upset or angry kid and see the change…it works! Because ultimately, all children express themselves through music in some way or the other (Interesting right?). Listening and joining in with songs, learning about rhythm, and playing simple instruments, all help your child learn to concentrate, recognize patterns and remember them- all vital components of learning through listening.
If you want your children to see how much fun music can be then watch The Sound of Music together – it’s a gem!
The rhythm of life
And guess what! You don’t need lots of time, money or musical ability to bring music into your children’s lives. Young children instinctively dance and sing – it’s their way of celebrating life (sadly something we adults forget to do). The heart beat and pulse are natural rhythms. And every child has their own built-in musical instrument – their voice (Minus when they are crying. That music isn’t pleasing to the ears!)
Mini Mozarts, age 3-6
Children of six and under respond to music in an instinctive way. They are still unselfconscious – make the most of it! Stock up on nursery tapes and simple musical instruments.
Make the magic of music come alive for children of this age group by watching wonderful musicals like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Oliver and Annie.
At Twizzle, we organize amazing recording studio parties for your budding performer and his/her friends to make their own best-selling records!
We also have some really talented performers who use storytelling, music and performance to communicate and explore a wide array of ideas, feelings and thoughts!
In addition, we organize music, theatre and dance workshops at Chelsea School of Performing Arts in Summer, Autumn and Winter. (Bookings for the Autumn workshop are now closed.)
