We believe that language and musical education go hand-in-hand which is why song is part of our daily routine at PINTA CAMINOS. The children learn German and Spanish songs, fairy tales, rhymes, and poems and get to participate in the rhythms with various rattles and percussion instruments.
“Wird eine verbale Zuwendung durch eine musikalische erweitert, so kann auch Musik zu einer Art Muttersprache werden” (www.musikgarten-obstfeld.de)
This quote illustrates that if the same amount of attention is given to musical development as is given to speech development, then music becomes a kind of native language for the child.
And that can be a treasure for a lifetime…
