Nautanki - Music and Rhythm for Kids (Age: 6 to 12 years)
Music is a fundamental part of every society. It is present everywhere around us - it is in the sound of rain, in our heartbeat and also on every corner of the most crowded streets of Mumbai. It is a shared experience and invites coming together.
Music and rhythm have always played an important role in our culture. Through music, we express the full range of human emotion - love, joy, anger, hope, despair, the pleasures, and sorrows of being alive. Music ignites all areas of our development: intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. Children also learn cooperation, sharing and compromise, creativity, and concentration - skills that become invaluable as they enter school, face new challenges and begin to form new friendships.
Music and rhythm help in the development of:
Fine motor development and hand-eye coordination
Language development and listening skills
Rhythm, beat, and tempo
Creative thinking and problem solving
