Frequently asked questions
WHY MUSIC COURSES FOR SUCH YOUNG INFANTS AND TODDLERS?
Infants and toddlers are highly intelligent social beings who absorb everything in their environment. Language acquisition begins long before the utterance of first words and similarly do infants adjust to the musical culture they are born into. Music provides opportunities for growth and development in multiple important areas in early childhood. Musical practicing and participation in group musicking is a unique experience for young children discovering the world. In Tónagull we apply effective musical methods appropriate for the very young.
WHAT IS DONE IN THE CLASSES?
Each class lasts 45 minutes and the main emphasis is on community and enjoyment. The classes are diverse, albeit follow a predetermined structure. This frames each class and helps the children learn what to expect next. We use structured games and improvisation.
In the beginning we always begin with a welcoming song and we end with a final good-bye song. In between we work with finger games and rhymes, games on the lap, movement games, song-dances, baroque-dance, circle-dances, egg-shakers, colourful scarves, drums and kids-instruments.
