KinderFlute® is a music program designed especially for children aged four to eight, which taps into a child’s amazing ability to learn through play. Fast-paced group classes and fun-filled private lessons keep youngsters engaged and motivated as they learn breathing exercises, rhythmic movement, note reading, music theory and flute technique as well as basic keyboard skills. Each child's innate curiosity and eagerness
to explore are engaged throughout each session and skills are reinforced through active play. Kids have so much fun, they don’t even realize they’re learning! These early music lessons help to develop skills such as
team work, communication, dedication, confidence, social interaction, and more.
KinderFlute® teaches young children to love
music and learn to play the flute---but that is only the
beginning. We have an intense desire to see each child
realize their potential in all areas of their lives. Through
learning to listen, finger, produce a beautiful tone, read
music, compose, and creatively express themselves;
students are firing areas of the brain to make learning in
all areas more productive. The group lessons are carefully planned to maximize learning potential. Movement and games are a major component in the group classes so that students maintain a keen sense of alertness.
Many of the tenets of the class are based on recent research in neurogenesis (see below) and learning potential."Neurogenesis" literally means "birth of neurons". Neurogenesis is most prevalent during pre-natal development and is the process by which neurons are created to populate the growing brain. Contrary to what was believed 10 years ago, new research has shown that neurogenesis also can occur throughout life. Key factors that have proven to stimulate significant neurogenesis are exercise, a loving and supportive environment, and new and enriching experience.
