Music-based activities increase a child’s IQ
2018-08-22 | By Zo Kinderopvang
Big Ben Kids Centre starts violin lessons together with Bloom Music House.
As of 1 September 2018, Big Ben Kids will include violin workshops in its range of after school pursuits in partnership with William and Morgain Bloom.
Children of Big Ben Kids have already enjoyed violin workshops during previous holiday periods. Now, because of the enthusiasm of both kids and parents, there is going to be a sequel.
It is always a pleasure to see the happy faces of the children at these events. But not only is making music fun, it also stimulates a child’s musicality. Scientific research has shown that music-based activities increase a child’s intelligence quotient (IQ) and greatly enhance the power of abstraction and analytical thinking.
The violin classes are to be provided from 1 September on Thursdays from 4.00 pm to 4.45 pm at Big Ben Kids (45-minute lessons). Classes will be small, comprising just three to five children. As the lessons will be given by William and Morgain together, the children will receive a lot of individual attention and focus can be placed on technique. Lessons will be invoiced monthly by Bloom Music House and this will include violin rental and insurance.
Special offer until 15 September 2018
Parents who now register their son or daughter for day care or the after school club will receive the first month of violin lessons, or any other music-based activity of choice, for free (violin lessons start from the age of four.) It’s a gift that gives your child a head start in terms of development and is worth 90 euros. The condition is that parents remain a client for at least six months. You will find the conditions here.
William and Morgain of Bloom Music House
Both tutors are academic musicians with a good deal of international work experience. William and Morgain provide high-quality lessons in small groups and focus specifically on technique. They enjoy introducing children to the violin from an early age because it lays important groundwork and affords the opportunity to pursue instrumental music studies later in life.
As you are aware, Big Ben Kids would like children to get acquainted with as many activities as possible and believes this should be a fun process. Compared to other childcare providers in The Hague, we feel our offer is quite generous. We also believe that music is extremely important for child development.
