More Information

Philosophy
Children learn best when they feel loved and nurtured. This fact is the core of the Sound Beginnings philosophy. Sound Beginnings provides the structure for natural play between a parent and his or her child. Taking us back to days before electronic stimulus, buttons and screens, Sound Beginnings gives the parents the tools to connect with their child on an intimate, playful level. These tools, both musical and literary, provide a solid framework for a child to learn, thrive and flourish.

The Music Window
Sound Beginnings provides research-based music experiences proven to create connections in the brain that will make children more intelligent! The music learning window is age 3-9 years and the language window is from birth-9 years. A young child’s brain, eyes, ears, arms and legs are ready to experience music! This means that the earlier a child is exposed to music, the more fully they will comprehend it, and the easier it will be for them. Students who have attended Sound Beginnings graduate to Let’s Play Music singing in tune, understanding the difference between beat and rhythm, loving classical music, knowing colors, numbers, and having an enthusiasm for music!
Full Body Movement
Children learn best by doing! Lessons are structured with minimal talking and explaining which leaves plenty of time for playing, dancing and singing! Research has shown that the more physically involved a child is in the learning process, the more he/she will internalize the concept. That’s why we involve the full body!

Fun, Fun, Fun
Children learn most effectively when they are playing! If you were to peek in on a Sound Beginnings class, you would see jumping, singing, skipping, storytelling, and laughing! Music educators have long taught that the young child learns best through play, experience and discovery. As musical concepts and skills are explored in a playful, joyful setting, children absorb knowledge and ability.

Further Benefits
Researchers, teachers and parents are discovering that music education promotes:

  • Excellence in math
  • Increased ability to read
