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 that inspires and music that excites. The Music Scientist aims to revolutionise early childhood education and champion an even closer integration of music and 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.
Music and Movement
The concept of music is a “whole brain” experience.
In The Music Scientist, through the music movement and play, it stimulates and speeds up the development in every area of the brain. Apart from these, children also grasp the skills of playing various percussions and instruments.
We develop a structured Music curriculum to the developmental milestones of the children, that is bridging towards and subsequently in line with Orff, Kodaly and ABRSM, where children are actively engaged and skilled towards the mastery of Music. And we aspire to nurture future song composers, drummers, musicians and many more.
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 science experiments and crafts. The child is then able to connect, explore, problem solve and spark interest in science, resulting in experiences that are fun, enjoyable and lasting.
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.
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!
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.
