ABOUT

Our goal is to build up a solid musical base for the next generations.

 

Little Genius Music  is based upon the philosophies of Zoltán Kodály and Jacques- Dalcroze.

 

We firmly believe that music education should be taught from a very young age as the cornerstone of every child development. 

 

Music education has a particular formative power.

Songs and games have a positive effect on a child’s emotions and develop their imagination and confidence.

 

You learn to speak, then to read=You learn how music works, then you play an instrument.

 

Before considering any formal tuition in a musical instrument, a child has to be able to understand how music works. Little Genius Music is aimed to be a space where music concepts as Pulse, Rhythm, Pitch, Dynamics and Improvisation can be felt and lived through singing, movement and imagination.
