The Music Scientist revolutionises the way Music is learnt!
We supplement Music with intriguing Science concepts. The child’s brain being stimulated to build connections across both hemispheres. We design a medley of activities to complement both subjects. The children’s mastery of Music and Science are developed and strengthened.
We are very honored to be featured in:
We are dedicated to introducing your children to a world of beautiful phenomena through science and sensory that inspires and music that excites. The Music Scientist aims to revolutionise early childhood education and champion an even closer integration of music and sensory/science, to create the most fruitful learning experience for all our students. Ultimately, we hope to inspire children to
move it, love it and learn it.
At The Music Scientist, we believe in the long-term development of the children, even beyond their preschool years. By integrating music and science, we break traditional confining boundaries of left brain and right brain subjects, thereby elevating the learning experience to an even more holistic one. From an early age, we effectively utilise the element of fun to engender the love for learning, paving the way for a lifetime of exploration.
Whole Brain Learning Approach
The left brain is analytical while the right brain is intuitive. Yet, the most complex problems are solved when both hemispheres are utilised. The Whole Brain Learning Approach was developed based on Dr. Roger W. Sperry’s research on the two hemispheres of our brain and the learning that occurred across them. With music and movement, we prepare your children for the ever-changing future by developing their entire brain.
In 1983, Dr. Howard Gardner put forth his findings that human intelligence can be divided into 8 forms. Today, his findings have evolved into the Multiple Intelligences pedagogical approach for which Dr. Gardner has won numerous awards. To develop your child into a well-rounded individual, we target as many forms as possible – Logical, Musical, Kinesthetics, Naturalistic and Verbal.
Experienced educator Loris Malaguzzi founded the Reggio Emilia approach to champion progressive and cooperative early childhood education in Italy. This approach places emphasis on experiential learning and problem-solving. We effectively utilise music, movement, visual aids and the power of observation to give your child the most powerful understanding of science.
In designing our curriculum, we studied and consolidated the Whole Brain Learning Approach, Multiple Intelligences and Reggio Emilia pedagogies to create a well-rounded approach that we believe suites the needs of the children today.
Music and Movement
Using renowned Music and Movement pedagogy of Carl Orff and Zoltan Kodaly, our Music curriculum is built on Music fundamentals of Music and Movement, solfege singing, rhythmic learning and auditory training, which is then tiered onto sight reading and song improvisation. This strengthens your child’s Musicianship and sets a strong Music foundation to tackle Music learning at higher levels.
Through our purposeful in house songs and choreographed Music and Movement, it enables your child to absorb the embedded science facts easily while internalizing various musical elements. In addition to the catchy songs, abstract science facts are made into fun and interactive visuals and characters, which will help your child understand and remember better.
Often, science education only begins when children enter formal schooling. In Singapore, science is not part of the curriculum until primary 3. Almost immediately, these young minds are forced into memorising facts, drilling questions and sitting for high stakes streaming examinations. Many students struggle with science in primary school. It is thus important to provide the students an earlier start to learn and love.
In our curriculum, we cover topics from human biology to basic physics and even more complex topics such as environment and space. Our unique classes give an insight of what it takes to be a/an Doctor, Astronaut, Arborist, Marine Zoologist, Scientist and many more.
In The Music Scientist, we create illustrations and analogies to explain the science, and provide opportunities for the child to hands-on activities like interactive card and board games, obstacle courses, role-play, crafts, experiments and demonstrations are specially designed for them. The child is then able to connect, explore, problem solve and spark interest in science, resulting in experiences that are fun, enjoyable and lasting.
The Music Scientist's Programmes - A Holistic Approach
In designing our curriculum, we studied and consolidated the Whole Brain Learning Approach, Multiple Intelligences and Reggio Emilia pedagogies to create a well-rounded approach that we believe suits the needs of children today.
Our programmes are based on the MOE Science Syllabus for Lower Primary School and in conjunction with the education philosophies of renowned music educators Carl Orff, Émile Jacques-Dalcroze and Zoltán Kodály. We work hand in hand with the Early Childhood Educators and Music Teaching Professionals to create a holistic curriculum.
The Music Scientist programmes engage your child to explore the world beyond while stimulating his/her brain development through the fun music, movement, visual aids, science crafts and experiments.
(8-36 months old) focuses on exposing your child to various forms of sensory stimulation, which boost brain development through the stimulation of multiple senses.
(3-4 years old) exposes your child to various science and general knowledge at a young age to nurture their curiosity and observational skills.
(5 -8 years old) incorporate the MOE Science Syllabus for Lower Primary School and beyond, while in conjunction with the education philosophies of renowned music educators Carl Orff and Zoltan Kodaly.
Still unsure how science and music can go together?
Check out some of the themes we have and groove to some of our featured original music below while learning various interesting science facts.
Educational song for kids and learn to protect ourselves against the Coronavirus (Covid-19)! Sing along and join the fun movement with Teacher Axel and friends via this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwuCAnc7G8Q!
The Pumping Heart
The song lyrics incorporate many key features of the human heart. Difficult biology facts become more interesting and so much easier to remember when in catchy tunes. The children can sing and dance to learn them.
Move and groove
Move it, move it, groove it and groove it! We move and groove with our bones!
Learning human anatomy in a novel, fun-filled way. We use music, together with dance and movement to explain the functions of our bones.
Mother Earth is getting sick
To combat climate change, we educate our future leaders about the importance of environmental conservation, and empower them to do their part by reduce the use of plastics and conserving energy.
We turn science facts into musicals. Featuring the different species of Sharks!
