Learning Through Music at Genesis Preschools

In addition to the other centers that we use to encourage learning through play, we encourage our students to express themselves through music. Music has been consistently shown to provide skill-building on a level that other subjects do not–but our preschoolers simply love the opportunity to play loudly with instruments, voices, and dancing.

 

Students at Genesis Preschools, through their musical expression:

  • Increase fine motor skills as they manipulate instruments
  • Work on gross motor skills like balance, rhythm, and coordination (air guitar is HARD!)
  • Apply their senses to differentiate between sounds
  • Increase their vocabulary, phonological awareness, and attention span
  • Use math skills like counting, patterning, and tempo
  • Develop all their cognitive areas, as musical expression fires neurons
  • Encourage communication in multiple forms
  • Sing songs about what they’re learning, which forms the backbone of learning at Genesis Preschools
