                       from the Juilliard School (New York)

                 K-12 methodology, where our director

       was the Regional Lead for developing the

Studies show that nurturing minds through music stimulates neuron pathways, which accelerate your child's brain development

necessary for

numeracy and literacy.

Our Qualified Innovative Approach

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum focuses on three key cognitive areas:

Ways of Thinking, Ways of Doing, Ways of Being

Across these 3 areas, there are 9 taught competencies that we believe are essential to a holistic education:

Each of these competencies is assigned a learning outcome that is appropriate to specific age-groups, thereby extending what is a narrow set of objectives set out in the New Zealand Arts Curriculum into a holistic, transferable set of skills necessary for today's competitive, globalised world.

An example showing learning outcomes for ages 6 and 7: 

Each outcome targets the skills necessary to not only establish well-rounded musicianship, but to develop essential skills that are transferable to any other subject. 

How do these competencies benefit my child? 

Music should play a key role in a child's education, particularly as researchers are linking the study of music to better cognitive development and higher academic achievement. However, music is becoming marginalised in primary education due to teacher shortages, lack of training and constraints on resourcing budgets.

MusoMinds enables the child to address the 9 competencies with confidence, so that when they leave school, they do so with the skill-set that can tackle challenges successfully with an awareness of others.

The MusoMinds approach embeds these 9 competencies into our schemes of learning, so that the mind engages in the development of 6 essential areas for well-being at each session.

 

We believe that these 6 areas (shown below) will become prioritised as a set of attributes valued by employers and society in the future.

Creativity & Innovation

MusoMinds teaches the overcoming of failure, lateral thinking and experimentation. In other words, the mind learns through music how to create and innovate in a given situation.
