Kindermusik Offers Unique Learning For Young Children

Kindermusik at Lirico Music School announces the launch of its year-end semester classes of Kindermusik, the world's leading music and movement program for children from birth to seven years of age.

(Press Release) November 16, 2011 - Kindermusik fosters the total development of young children through a combination of music and movement. Parents with newborns, toddlers, and 4 through 7-year-old children can participate in Kindermusik activities -- jingling bells, pounding drums, floating scarves, "hooting" owl sounds and little feet moving in time go music -- for a valuable learning experience for both the child and the parent or caregiver.

Kindermusik at Lirico Music School offers a complete development program where both children and parents learn through music and movement. Lirico Music School, the leading Ipoh Music School established in 1997 in Malaysia is owned by Eliz Kuek who also has been a licensed Kindermusik Educator since 2002.

Eliz strongly believes that each Kindermusik class is a world of discovery and adventure. "In every class, you'll witness your child's developmental evolution in language skills, literacy, listening, problem solving, social skills, self-esteem, and musicality. And it happens within a nurturing environment-full of energy, imagination, music, dancing, and playful delight," explains Eliz. "By adding new concepts and challenges along the way, each age-appropriate programme acts as a stepping stone to the next-paving the way to a musical journey that can last seven magnificent, musical years."

Classes being offered this session are Kindermusik Village, newborns to 11/2 years; Kindermusik Our Time, 18 months to 3 years; Kindermusik Imagine That!, 3 to 5 years; and Kindermusik Young Child, 5 to 7 years old. All classes are 15 week sessions except for the Village class, which is eight weeks.

Classes meet at Lirico Music School, 21 & 21A, Jalan Sri Ampang 1, Taman Seri Ampang, 31350 Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia.  Contact : 605 - 313 7395 / 6012 - 353 7395

Issues & Insights Regarding Your Baby ~ Nov' 2011

Babies and Music

"Musical awareness is observable very early in life. [Howard Gardner, educational theorist who developed the theory of Multiple Intelligences] states that it emerges the earliest of all the different kinds of intelligence. The Papouseks, highly respected developmental researchers from West Germany, report that infants as young as two months can match the pitch, intensity, and melodic contour of the mother's songs, and at four months infants can match the rhythmic structures as well. These researchers feel that infants are even more predisposed to these aspects of music than to speech (Papousek, 1982)."

---"Theories of Child Development and Musical Ability," by Sally Rogers from Music and Child Development, ed. Franz L. Roehmann and Frank R. Wilson, pp. 2-3.

Your Baby's Musical Life

You may have already noticed that your baby is listening attentively to music. He may react to different types of music in different ways. He may become alert, move excitedly, relax, or even doze off depending on the nature of the music. By filling the spaces of Baby's day with music we are teaching him the many roles that music can play throughout his life. Music can help him relax, cope with feelings, celebrate, create, and express beyond verbal capabilities.

Musical Variety in Kindermusik Village
( newborn to 18mths )

Kindermusik Village introduces a great variety of music, representing diverse cultures, styles, and tonalities, as well as varied instrumentation and voice types. Cock-a-doodle-MOO! features Cantonese Lullaby, a soothing, traditional Chinese song; Hey Diddle Diddle, a simple, traditional English rhyme and song; Ritsch, Ratsch, a lively Swedish folk song, and Armenian Lullaby, a relaxing song in the minor mode. Not only will your baby enjoy reacting to these different styles of music emotionally and physically, but intellectually it is important that your baby experience this music. We tend to appreciate and enjoy listening to music that is familiar. By exposing your baby to a broad selection of music at an early age, you will help him have a rich "repertoire" of familiar sounds and styles that will make more music accessilbe and interesting to him throughout his life.

Music at Home

Allegro! Andante! Adagio...
Choose your favorite tempi for you and Baby. Pick a song from Kindermusik Home CD and sing it to baby slowly and then quickly. See if you can tell from Baby's response which tempo he prefers. Which do you prefer?

Play a track from your Kindermusik Home CD and dance with Baby using fast, pointed movements. Then play another track and slow dance with her. Try continuous, sweeping motions.

What Time Is It?
Play different types of music for different times of the day. Perhaps you could play a track when it is time for a nap, and play another track when it is time for active play.

A Musical Treasure Hunt
Explore everyday objects with Baby to see what sounds they make when you strike them with a spoon or shake them. Does there seem to be an object or sound that Baby is particularly interested in or finds humorous? Did you find something that you never expected to be musical?

"Children must receive musical instruction as naturally as food and withas much pleasure as they derive from a ball game... and this must happen from the beginning of their lives."
---Leonard Bernstein
