Holistic Early Music Education For Children Ages 3 til 7
Classical music is one of the best things for a child to support their intellectual, cognitive, and personality development. Through classical music, children develop their sensitivity, ability to empathize, and kindness. At a young age, children are the most receptive to discovering the world of classical music.
Yulia Semenova introduces children aged 3 to 7 to the world of music. The main elements of her method are fairy tales, play, and improvisation.
Musical games target the emotional development of children, who at this age have tremendous abilities for creative and imaginative thinking.
The fairy tales used adapt to specific tasks for the group as a whole and for each child in particular, depending on their individual characteristics.
During the lessons, the children play many roles, experience many different feelings while empathizing with the fairy tale characters, expresses these feelings through movement, dance, pantomime and language. We write fairy tales together and thereby expand the vocabulary. The children discover that the same word evokes different "images" in different people. Everyone has their own idea which is not simply "right" or "wrong". If I want to be understood, I have to describe my "picture" in as much detail and as vividly as possible so that others can see it the way I do. We discuss the different thoughts in a non-judgemental way. The children are interested in their own opinions as well as those of others, activating both their thinking and attention. When children are able to easily step into an image and want to play along, they even perceive sounds as real images.
