Music2Grow offers Kindermusik classes for children 0 – 7 years & their families on the Sunshine Coast. Small-group, weekly classes provide a warm, personal experience that encourages learning at each child’s individual pace.
Kindermusik is child centred, age-appropriate and fosters a love of music, rhythm and self-expression. Each week in class we combine your child’s natural love of music, movement and play with age appropriate activities that introduce early music concepts and foster language, physical, cognitive, social and emotional development – and inspire a lifetime love of music and learning!
All classes are delivered by Educator/Owner Verna Hewitt (Grad Dip Ed., MA) who has a background in teaching (P-10), holds a current positive notice Blue Card and has been a licensed Kindermusik Educator since 2003.
Verna worked in several Kindermusik studios and early childhood settings on Brisbane’s northside from 2003-2007, including Kindermusik by Cathy, Ready Mr Music and Kindermusik with Leanne/Flying Fox Studios before moving to the Sunshine Coast in 2007. Verna attained her professional certification with Kindermusik International in 2007 and launched her own Kindermusik programme, Music2Grow, in the Noosa Hinterland town of Cooroy in February 2009. Music2Grow now holds Kindermusik classes across two convenient locations on the sunshine coast – Buderim & Cooroy.
Created by early childhood music educators and informed by the latest research in child development, Kindermusik programs provide early childhood learning opportunities through innovative music and movement curricula that involve families in the joy of their child’s development. The Kindermusik curricula blend the music-education philosophies of music educators such as Carl Orff, Zoltan Kodaly, and Shin’ichi Suzuki with the developmental research and pedagogical approaches of Lev Vygotsky, Jean Piaget, and Maria Montessori.
For over 40 years Kindermusik has been and still is the world’s most respected name in musical learning for young children. Every aspect of the Kindermusik program is grounded in these core beliefs: every child is musical, every parent is the child’s most important teacher, the home is the most important place for learning to take root and grow, and that based on research, music nurtures a child’s cognitive, emotional, social, language and physical development.
From birth through seven years of age, with the caring guidance of a trained and licensed Kindermusik educator, your child can grow with Kindermusik without pressure to perform, only encouragement to explore, express and discover. You’ll see a developmental evolution in language skills, literacy, listening, problem solving, social skills, self-esteem and musicality!
