Magical Musical Kingdom is a vibrant theme that uses well-known and lesser-known childhood songs to teach musical concepts with a royal flavour!
Dance like a Dragon to semi-breves, walk like a King to crotchets and queen to Quavers, as we use physical movement to express the grounding rhythms of music!
Musicaliti uses the concepts of the renowned educational approaches of Dalcroze, Kodaly and Montessori towards bringing true musicality to children.
By providing a physical grounding in rhythm and developing inner hearing through singing, children are equipped with the S.P.A.C.E. that they need to develop into the fascinating and successful adults that they will become. S.P.A.C.E. describes the activities of each Musicaliti session including Singing, Playing, Acting, Creating and Exploring, as well as summarising additional benefits:
Social: Group music introduces friends and builds relationshipsPhysical: By moving in time, children develop physical co-ordination
Academic: Music practice makes learning new things easy
Creative: Musical experience helps the brain to solve problems
Emotional: Music is a healthy form of self-expression
Musicaliti Nursery builds on children’s experiences of song in different and unexpected ways, developing their instincts in creating music, whilst building their experience of music concepts in a fun environment.
Using easy-to-follow instructions, each activity in the 20-30 minute session clearly describes apparatus needed (with alternative suggestions), suggested sequence of songs and activities, rationale behind the programme and benefits to children.
