Benefits of the Early Childhood Program

Children love music. Children learn best through moving and listening. Music awakens and stimulates neural pathways in the brain that are associated with language and higher forms of intelligence such as abstract thinking, empathy, mathematics and science.

 

Music's melodic and rhythmic patterns provide exercise for the brain and help develop memory. Studying music helps children establish good listening habits, which are essential for achievement in school.

 

Overall, music activities are perfect for child development. Music immerses the child in language, evokes movement, stimulates the brain and fosters physical coordination - all in a group setting that builds community - a holistic experience.

 

The Suzuki Early Childhood Music curriculum is unique among movement and music classes. The curriculum is based on a mastery of concepts and developing ability.

 

The Suzuki Early Childhood Music program helps parents embrace their role as their child's most significant teachers by helping them observe and celebrate their child's social, emotional, mental, physical, and musical development.
