Why musical experiences for the very young?
Dr. John Feierabend, a leading authority in early childhood music, comments:
“During these years, when the mind is making sense of the world, musical syntax is developing.
Beat, meter, rhythm, tonality, and expressive sensitivity should be presented.
Would you not talk to a baby simply because he/she cannot talk?
Then why should we wait to introduce music until the child can sing and move?”
Music is the medium through which PRELUDE uses Dr. Jill Stamm’s Brain Boxes® and the S.T.E.P.S. to Early Brain Development® within the context of First Steps in Music, a curriculum for infants and toddlers created by the well-known early childhood music educator, Dr. John Feierabend. Our classes offer musical activities to encourage positive one-to-one interactions between the parent or caregiver and child and increase quality time for bonding and learning.
Music Works Community is proud to announce that
our instructors have attended facilitation with Brain Boxes®
and have permission to integrate The Early Brain Development® Curriculum
with PRELUDE’S EarlyBirds Musical Explorations for the Very Young
Brain Boxes® incorporate the S.T.E.P.S. to Early Brain Development® Training Modules developed by Jill Stamm, PhD, well-recognized early childhood brain development expert. Dr. Stamm is the co-founder of New Directions Institute for Infant Brain Development and was a professor at Arizona State University. New Directions Institute (NDI), now under Arizona’s Children Association, provides neuroscience research on how the brain wires up for early learning in the important first five years of life. Dr. Stamm, a member of the National Advisory Panel of the Learning & The Brain Conference series, is an author and international speaker on early brain development and the connection of healthy brain growth to later learning and school achievement. “Boosting Brain Power: 52 Ways to Use What Science Tells Us“ is her best-selling book for parents and caregivers.
