Thank You for The Music -Rhythm Time Wakefield and South Leeds
Christmas is quickly creeping up on us and I for one, as a mother of three, am excited, yet full of dread at the amount of dare I say it ‘tat’ that I will be left to store once Santa is long gone.
This year I’m trying to think outside the box and give gifts that can be enjoyed throughout the year, namely vouchers and experiences.
Grandparents in particular love to watch their grandchildren participating in activities, whether it is dance, swimming music so why not encourage them to buy activity vouchers for Christmas and even get involved in attending a class or two?
Saves space for you and spreads the joy of Christmas throughout the year.
Rhythm Time vouchers are a great choice as we offer classes for very young babies right up to children of reception age. The benefits of music have been well researched.
Why Music Classes?
During the first five years of a child’s life, it is important to establish singing and music as a means of communication and expression.
Research shows that babies, in particular, need to have all their senses stimulated and Rhythm Time can really help to enhance a child’s natural development through multi-sensory musical activities.
To enjoy music it is important to nurture and foster an interest in music as early as possible and this is where an award-winning group like Rhythm Time can play a key part.
Children who are exposed to a wide variety of musical concepts and experiences will enjoy music for the rest of their lives. Speech development, social skills, confidence and many other areas will also be enhanced.
It is most important for children to experience music at this early age since they are at their most receptive. It can be beneficial to them in three ways: emotionally, intellectually and physically.
Music is such an important influence in a child’s life. It helps develop vital self-confidence and give them a sense of achievement. It also helps develop language skills, co-ordination and listening.
Children making music together, even at a young age, learn to co-operate and gain pride in their achievements. They learn to express themselves through music and in turn, this can increase their vocabulary and communication skills. Above all music enriches children’s lives and it’s great fun too.
Why Rhythm Time?
Rhythm Time provides a set of unique music courses specially written by a music school teacher for four different age groups: Young babies, older babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. Each course helps with development and learning and provides continuity of skills achieved at each stage:
For young babies, Rhythm Time’s specially created courses are designed specifically to help the development of newborns up to the age of 6 months. There is a variety of sensory activities that are beneficial for both the baby at this tender age and their carer.
For older babies, class activities aim to stimulate vision, listening and sense of touch. This helps with eye tracking, balance, development of the inner ear, speech, language and small motor movements.
For toddlers, the musical activities aid listening and concentration. Hand-eye coordination and motor skills are strengthened by using musical instruments. Language and vocal chords are developed from singing.
For pre-schoolers, the music classes will help improve communication, language, literacy, maths skills and creative development.
Subsequently, children can enjoy a wonderful introduction to music and to future music making. Give your little one a lifelong love of music this Christmas with a Rhythm Time gift voucher (Minimum value £10).
