Welcome to Mumo
where music and movement merge
Baby and Me workshops
Development classes for parents and young children
“Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart.”
Mumo's music, movement program
is not a music class where children learn to
play instruments or a dance class where children learn to be great
dancers but are developmental classes called "Workshops" taught using music and movement. Each workshop last 6 weeks and is filled with music, movement, learning and fun. Mumo' s curriculum is built around the fundamental aspect of growth and
learning in young children and is the building block of the program.
Mumo's curriculum is all inclusive and has purposely made sure all areas are adaptable to provide
flexibility for each person’s developmental abilities, needs and
interest. The curriculum also considers the three domains of development
focused on by early childhood professionals such as, physical,
cognitive, and social emotional. In the realm of early childhood
education it is believed by many professionals that the constructive
facilitating of a child’s development in these three areas can
enrich their overall development in many areas of their lives.
intention is not to teach children formal education but to give
children and families the opportunities to strengthen and enhance
their developmental skills of learning and growing together through music and movement.
relationship between music and language processing has been examined
on a neurophysiological (or brain structure) level in several
studies. 20 Various techniques reveal that both words and music tones
cause similar activity in specific regions of the brain. It has been
shown that the primary auditory regions and supplementary motor areas
respond similarly to linguistic and musical sounds.Further,
research suggests that correlations exist between music training and
both reading acquisition and sequence learning.
Babies need plenty of opportunities
to exercise their bodies and their brains in order to move on to the
next stage of development. They also need time on their tummy’s to
practice important skills that will eventually lead to crawling and
unaided walking. Baby's that are learning to sit up are learning
essential balancing and stability skills. They also need to reach out
for things which they can only do when given plenty of opportunities
also provide sensory integration although many are familiar with the
five senses such as sight, smell, touch, hearing and taste. There
are also other senses the workshop will make familiar like the sense of
vestibular which has to do with
balance and staying up right. The sense of proprioception which is
knowing where all of your body parts are. That's why we can walk up
and down stairs without having to look at our feet. This sense helps
with clumsiness. Children who over react or even
react to certain feelings, textures or surfaces might may need help
with sensory integration.. Mumo wants to help facilitate all of these
senses which aids in developing the overall sense of
