IN-HOME LEARNING PODS

General Music Education for families

     My music enrichment classes are based on the most popular and proven music curriculum for young children (preK -2). Weekly classes include an engaging mix of playing instruments, singing, dancing, listening and writing. As an experienced elementary school music teacher, I would love to help your family out during these unpredictable times. My music classes are a fun and innovative way to help children stay active, social, and learn music.

If your family has created a pod with other families and would like to add high quality music curriculum feel free to contact me.

In the course of these fun and exciting classes, I will assist students in learning: how to read music, instrument technique, approaches to practicing, music theory, critical listening skills, and lots more. Get your pod together and share one of my customizable music arts education packages.

There are limited slots available for the coming semester so

don't hesitate to reach out to me today!

Benefits of music in your child's life...

Simply....“Music connects people”.  It may be a cliche' phrase, but in this case it does wonders for keiki minds. Young children love dancing, singing & pantomime. They repeat what they hear and see, and usually like to share it with others. Music develops children’s verbal and motor skills, it gives them confidence and energy to explore the world around them and share it with others. Perfect way to get those shy kids out of their shell.

Giving your keiki the opportunity to learn an instrument can be highly beneficial for their motor skills. Music education that starts at a very young age can do wonders for brain development. Learning a string instrument, for example, can improve left and right hand coordination in children. Similarly, playing the piano, while simultaneously pressing the pedal and reading notes, is an excellent practice for hand-eye coordination and agility. On the other hand, just dancing and singing develops children’s overall body coordination along with socialization.

One of the more surprising benefits since it's usually seen as opposite subjects is... music and math. These are two sides of the same coin. Reading and counting music actually requires understanding of fractions, division and keeping rhythm. Ongoing music playing improves these skills and develops logical thinking. What’s also interesting is that the same part of the brain is responsible for spatial skills, also required for understanding math.
