What You'll Get
Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata was crafted after he witnessed a beautiful nocturnal scene, just as the celebrated waltz "Chopsticks" was composed after Euphemia Allen enjoyed a particularly satisfying plate of sashimi. Explore the savory side of inspiration with today's Groupon: for $40, you get four sessions of kodomo music instruction from Suzuki Institute of Dallas, located in Richardson (an $81 value).
The Suzuki Institute of Dallas hosts Kodomo Music classes, designed for mini maestros age 18 months–4 years to join aural forces with a parent and explore the enriching avenues of music. Pitch, rhythm, and movement activities dominate the curriculums of these 45-minute classes, enlivened and underscored by the presence of live piano accompaniment. The Suzuki Institute's supremely qualified staff builds a strong start towards a sonicscaped future, infusing baby Brahms with foundational musical concepts such as high and low, soft and loud, slow and fast, and glam rock and indie pop. Kids and their parents will improvise and express themselves with a variety of instruments in whatever way they feel most comfortable contributing; komodo music does not emphasize performance, which results in a fun, energetic environment devoid of obligatory can-can lines.
The Suzuki Institute of Dallas employs the Suzuki Method, a means of musically educating youngsters through positive reinforcement and interactive fun in a learning-fostering environment. The kodomo music classes are a tuneful extension of this holistic approach, placing the focus on free expression rather than structured technique. Besides encouraging creativity, additional benefits of the classes may include an improved response to group settings, better direction following, and a stronger appreciation for the early work of Peter Gabriel–era Genesis.
