Music kindergarten classes
Musical kindergarten or musical playroom is intended for children from 4 to 6 years old.
By listening to shorter pieces or excerpts of larger pieces of music, the sensibility for music develops. Due to the age of the children, listening often involves movement.
Music speaks in a language that children instinctively recognize. It puts them in a world of theirs, inviting them to connect its parts, unite its words, move them to its rhythm, and explore its emotional and melodic dimension in all its beauty and depth.
The program is in the service of the child's development, which means that everything is achieved through their experience - story and play. Children at that age do not become musically literate, but learn a large number of songs, counters, get to know musical instruments, listen to beautiful music and interesting stories. However, it is more important to develop voice and ear, motor skills, abstract intelligence, sensibility for music and children around you (socialization), and of course, love for music itself. Through designed musical activities, children get to know the possibility of musical speech, express themselves through sound means - voice, body sounds and percussion. They get to know a certain number of musical achievements from the field of artistic and folk creativity. Musical culture contains musical education and influences the formation of children's positive attitude, behavior and need for musical art.
The children's counter has its well-deserved place in the musical heritage, which is characterized by the wealth of diversity that encompasses the coastal, island and continental belt. Each area often contains different influences in musical creation. It has always been nurtured equally in all our regions and is a real musical pearl in folk creativity. For example, there are many complex rhythms hidden in musical counters, which will only become aware of in later schooling. The counter has a very significant educational weight. Helps the child to choose a game,
players, roles in the game, sequence of performances in different forms of the game. It can introduce a wide variety of contents and forms of games. Play is the most natural activity for children and the most natural way of learning. It is a pleasure, a need, an activity in which the child develops emotions and himself. The child in the counter experiences himself in space and time, not only in relation to the people and things around him, but in the space and time of the music itself. This is why the counter helps in the development of musical abilities, primarily in the development of a sense of musical rhythm, memory, intonation, or musical hearing.
The basic task of the program is to support and intensify children's interest in music through all its segments (rhythm, singing, playing, listening, movement and dance, creating) through activities. Numerous studies, which examined the impact of music education on learning in children, support the theory that music education contributes to the development of intellectual and emotional skills and has a positive effect. Music is a natural part of children's lives. Introducing a child to music at an early age is more than entertainment. It can encourage learning, serve as an important part of a child's routine, and can offer many benefits.
Songs are much more fun than books because they are multimedia and teach children important facts and skills. For example, counting songs will help a child master a series of numbers, as well as letters, the alphabet, not to mention colors, animals, parts of the body, etc. It is important to understand that the child will not learn to read, but will develop memory and understanding of order words, rhythm and tones, and these are skills that are closely related to the later learning of reading and mathematics.
