Music concerts for the Under-5s
Listening to professionally performed music is one of the joys of life. Whether you are interested in Early Church music, Baroque, Classical, Romantic or 20th Century music, the stimulation and sense of enjoyment that comes from hearing music skilfully played by professional musicians is almost unsurpassable. It has the capacity to move us emotionally and generate an overall sense of well-being that is beyond our understanding. These wonderfully positive reactions to music should not be confined to people who have learned to sit still in formalised rows for extended periods of time.
Here at Westbury House, we think that listening and responding to live music plays such an important part in a child’s development that we would like to give your babies and toddlers an opportunity to share in this stimulating experience.
- Playing classical music such as Beethoven and Mozart to young children boosts their concentration and self-discipline, a new study suggests.
- Youngsters also improve their general listening and social skills by being exposed to repertoires from composers including Ravel, Shostakovich and Mendelssohn.
- In addition, they are likely to appreciate a wider range of music in later years, according to a study from the Institute of Education, (IoE), University of London.
Westbury House School offers you the opportunity, free of charge, to bring your babies and toddlers to a concert aimed at the under-5s in an informal setting.
So, if you want to meet with other parents/carers, enjoy classical music in a relaxed atmosphere, allow your little ones to respond to excellent music, book the dates and bring them to Klassical Kids.
