Pedagogy and philosophy behind the teaching
In our society there is great emphasis, pressure and value placed on the on the development of the intellectual side of our brains.
So much so, that little recognition is given to the importance of the development of the creative side of the brain. Research has shown that resolving this balance has led not only to swift development of latent skills, but to an increased self-confidence and awareness which in turn leads to success in many areas of a persons life.
The Children’s Music Centre works with the Latin term for education ‘educare’ which means to draw out. In this way we provide the creative outlet necessary for balance (and ultimately success), then nurture the desire to learn and create more, while making the necessary skills required for the effective self-expression readily available, thus preparing solid foundations for future music learning.
We believe that music is accessible to all!
Studies have shown that babies still in the womb are receptive and react to music. It is said that music is an international language and is often the first language we learn! Therefore comments such as “I have no musical ability” are not allowed!
Balanced whole brain learning is the way forward, and promoting a positive self-image through the freedom of creative expression, promotes a healthier lifestyle, both now and in all future personal endeavours.
Parents and children from many different walks of life have gained from this successful and enjoyable recipe and we hope you will too.
