Have you ever seen a preg­nant woman play­ing mu­sic to the fe­tus in her womb? Mu­sic has been proven to stim­u­late fe­tal mo­tion, calm the un­born baby and re­duce anx­i­ety for both mother and baby. A study con­ducted at the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, United States proves that chil­dren, es­pe­cially tod­dlers, who lis­ten to mu­sic and play the pi­ano have a bet­ter abil­ity to think. Mu­si­cal notes are known to stim­u­late the brain, hon­ing the in­tel­li­gence of chil­dren. Mu­sic stim­u­lates var­i­ous senses and helps chil­dren in their read­ing and writ­ing abil­i­ties. In ad­di­tion, mu­sic also sup­ports so­cial in­tel­li­gence, emo­tions and gross mo­tor skills. Kin­der­land recog­nises the im­por­tance of mu­sic in the de­vel­op­ment of lan­guage lit­er­acy and in chil­dren’s all- round de­vel­op­ment. Its Chil­dren’s Mu­sic Pro­gram pro­vides older chil­dren with the op­por­tu­nity to play the key­board while younger ones en­joy an early foun­da­tion in mu­sic. Taught by pro­fes­sion­ally qual­i­fied spe­cial­ist mu­sic teach­ers, our five and six-year olds (kinder­garten one and two) are in­tro­duced to weekly key­board lessons to fur­ther de­velop their hear­ing, singing, key­board play­ing and no­ta­tion read­ing skills. In fact, Kin­der­land Sin­ga­pore is the only kinder­garten in the coun­try with a march­ing band! Stud­ies have re­vealed that in­clud­ing mu­sic in the school cur­ricu­lum helps chil­dren to im­prove their con­cen­tra­tion, mem­ory, lis­ten­ing skills, abil­ity to ex­press feel­ings, sense of rhythm and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of team­work. So, what are you wait­ing for, reg­is­ter your lit­tle ones at the near­est Kin­der­land cen­tre now! Visit our web­site at www.kinder­landin­done­sia.com/jakarta
