New at Wordculture: Music lessons for kids. We combine language learning with great leisure activities!
I think it’s great that Wordculture is expanding the children’s program. My daughter is learning French here with enthusiasm, even though she had big problems with the language at the beginning. We will certainly try other courses at Wordculture!
Find out more about our music lessons here:
Our music lessons are focused on learning an instrument, the recorder, based on the Diandoalino method.
Diandoalino flute lessons are a new form of music education for children from pre-school age to primary 3, which awakens joy in music making. Elementary musical education, instrumental technique, perception and ear training, music history, acoustics, sound physics, colour theory, composition and improvisation form a unit in the musical learning process. These elements are taught in an interdisciplinary and integral way. Music theory is taught with the help of extensive illustrative material, physical experiments and games, which serve to deepen the learning process. Sensory perceptions play a major role, especially in acoustics and sound theory. The history of music is conveyed vividly and audibly through the repertoire of classical, contemporary, folkloric music and jazz, rock or pop.
In this way, the children are given their first taste of the wonderful world of music and musical expression in a playful, vivid and child-friendly way. Of course, in small groups of max. 6 children and accompanied and guided by our trained music teacher Michaela.
My son is in the child care with Alessandra and I appreciate her kindness and patience a lot. He is really enjoying his time with her.
