Musical Babes (<1.5 years)

Best first class for babies is music and movement

Music stimulates growth in the brain that can result in better motor skills, advanced auditory and language skills and a smarter adult.

Babies bond with their care-givers through vocal play, instrumental exploration & creative movements in a colourful yet hygienic environment.

FAQ

Your child’s safety is our main priority. As such, some adjustments have been made for our classes due to the current regulations, in addition to our regular practices.

 

- Mandatory temperature screenings for all students, parents and visitors at our centre.

- A max of 8 pairs of parent and child per class.

- Each pair of parent and child will be seated in an allocated space, 1 metre apart from the other pair    of parent and child.

- There will be no partnering activities involved. Eg. No sharing of instruments or holding hands.

- Each child will be provided with a set of percussion instruments to be used throughout the lesson.

- Accompanying adult to wear socks in the studio.

- All instruments are cleaned with Milton Sterilising Fluid after each class.

- The studios and waiting area are sprayed with Milton Disinfectant Spray at end of each class.

Only ONE adult may accompany the child in class, so as not to distract our little ones. Imagine having 8 students with 16 accompanying adults, there will also not be ample space when we do movement activities.

The majority of OMS teachers have been teaching music and movement to young children for many years. They are ORFF-SCHULWERK trained. Orff Schulwerk or simply the Orff Approach, is a developmental approach used in music education. It incorporates music, movement, drama, and speech into lessons that are similar to child's world of play. It was developed by the German composer Carl Orff and his colleague Gunild Keetman during the 1920s.

Our Teachers also go through regular in-house trainings. Our senior Teachers are music curriculum writers, composers and arrangers themselves.

She/he can join the Young Musical Babes Class. Babies’ neural connections develop rapidly in their first year.

With a million neural connections being produced each second, baby brains change rapidly. There’s a big difference between the first two months of life and the span from 18 to 24 months.

The earlier your baby is introduced to music, he/she will have a better head start.

Develop a keen sense of listening.

- Gain exposure to a wide repertoire of music genres.

- Express the learnt skills through body movement (dance, body percussions), instrument play and exploration, vocalisation (singing, chanting) and ensemble play.
