Share music to children

Dessin enfants et instruments de musique, animation musicale avec Charles Ostiguy

Musical awakening workshop by singing, dancing, body expression, musical instruments and music theory provides the foundation for the regenerative practice of music.

We work theoretical learning and creation. Over the course of the sessions, the child participates in the creation of rhythms and songs while integrating the basics of musical practice.

When possible, the parent is invited to participate in the musical awakening workshop in order to get together with your child, to connect through music and experience a magical moment with your family. And the cost of the workshop remains the same! 

Musical awakening workshops include the expression of emotions and feelings by the child.. The animator also relies on the sensory experience lived by the child by taking awareness of his body as a musical instrument.

Ultimately, the musical awakening workshops allow children to refocus, regain their calm and well-being they naturally possess while developing their musical abilities. 

The benefits of the musical awakening workshop

Studies show that early musical practice presents many benefits for the child such as :

  • Develop auditory perception and listening skills.
  • Promote cognitive development and memory
  • Improve coordination, balance and spatial orientation
  • Increase concentration skills
  • Develop self-expression, creativity and emotional intelligence
  • Stimulate body memory
  • Create a sense of belonging

The regenerative practice of music through the musical awakening workshop

In addition to the proven benefits of music in children, musical practice combined with meditative practice provides the child with essential tools for their inner well-being and overall development.

Thus, during the workshops, we explore different meditative practices such as : 

  • energetic singing
  • mindfulness meditation
  • breath meditation

The aim is to allow the child to acquire basics in meditation, and by extension, on self control, while allowing him to learn the theoretical basics of music.

Each workshop focuses on specific learning while including meditative practice at the appropriate time during the session.
