Every Child Can Class at the Center – Friday 9/6 at 9 am


The Center is hosting an ‘Every Child Can’ Suzuki introductory class on Friday 9/6 starting at 9 am (to 4 pm with one hour lunch break). The class will be taught by the SAA Certified Teacher Trainer Françoise Pierredon, a fabulous piano teacher, a teacher trainer. Her bio on SAA site is: http://suzukiassociation.org/people/francoise-pierredon/

‘Every Child Can’ class includes an introduction to learning styles, history of the development of Suzuki education, the role of parents, the importance of Suzuki pedagogical training, and an overview of the SAA’s role in supporting teachers and parents. It is a great course for all parents – and not just for Suzuki parents – and is appropriate for any person who is interested in the methodology and psychology of teaching very young children. It transfers to many aspects of learning in a child. More information on Every Child Can is found here: http://suzukiassociation.org/teachers/training/ecc/

The cost for the class will depend on how many people sign up. Thus, the more people sign-up, the less it will cost per person to do the class. There are already 4 people signed up. So, the $300 fee FOR THE ENTIRE GROUP will be split evenly, plus $30 per person for the SAA registration fee and the book. Thus:

 –          Person 5 would make the class cost 60+30

–          Person 6 would make the class cost 50+30

–          Person 7 would make the class cost 42.86+30… etc…

 The class takes 7 hours (6 hours for the class and 1 hour lunch break) and the class is scheduled for:

 Friday    September  6        9:00 am to 4:00 pm (6 hours class, 1 hour lunch break)

Please email Director at MusicArtDance dot org. Subject: “ECC Training on 9/6′ and include:

Music Lessons are good for Brain Development!

There are various studies showing connection between music instruction and increase test scores. An analysis of the U.S. Department of Education NELS:88 database of over 25,000 students, followed over a ten year period, found that students who were involved in instrumental music scored significantly higher on standardized tests, reading and reading proficiency exams than those students who were not involved in musical instruction; regardless of their socioeconomic background. (- Catterall, Chapleau, Iwanaga. “Involvement in the Arts and Human Development: General Involvement and Intense Involvement in Music and Theatre Arts.” Los Angeles, CA: The Imagination Project at UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, 1999.)

Music lessons at the Center can be started as early as 3 or 4 (Suzuki Violin and Suzuki Piano programs), or even earlier with our Musikgarten program (Musik Kids)

Also, Science Daily published an interesting article about the effect of music lessons on childhood brain development. So this which we all thought to be common sense now has some research behind it.
