Little Starz Philosophy
We believe young children should:
Experience music in a variety of ways that will bring pleasure and enjoyment to them throughout their lives.
Experience musical activities and materials appropriate to their developmental needs and age.
Be allowed to develop their musical potential to the fullest.
Be encouraged to express themselves musically and often in an environment which nurtures and reinforces in a positive manner.
Adults working with Children will:
Provide musical activities, whether planned or spontaneous, as a part of daily life.
Offer musical opportunities—listening, singing, creating, moving, and experimenting with sound.
Emphasize enjoyment of the experience, rather than an 'expected' outcome.
Participate in musical activities that enhance further learning—language acquisition, listening skills, auditory discrimination, and social skills.
Supply an environment in which children can freely explore and engage in musical experiences.
A main goal of music is to enrich lives through music by developing aesthetic senses.
Balanced musical activities will contribute to the development of every child.
Music can support developing concepts and skills in children enjoyably and without pressure.
Children are natural musicians! Given the opportunity, they will express themselves musically in many creative ways. Nurture this.
