(PowerKorea) Seeing and hearing play a great role in brain development of children aged around 5. Using a musical instrument efficiently delivers this development during the process of seeing, touching and hearing. Experts say that music stimulates five senses of children and helps them grow sensitivity, cognition, language, creativity and physical movement.
Little Fingers is a South Korean children’s music academy established in 2007. All teaching books are written in Korean and English and it is notable that they are being used in over 500 children’s schools nationwide. Behind this remarkable success lies a well-organized music education program. It helps each child find the most natural instrument that accompanies stories and history.
Piano lesson, for example, not only teaches how to play piano but tells them a story of the music they play as well as the composer to maximize their curiosity and participation. From Bach to Haydn, children can learn a piece of music in more comprehensive way and this also can build their knowledge and understandability.
In recognition of its excellence, Little Fingers received Children’s Music Education at the Innovation Winner 2021 held by Herald Corporation.
