KinderFluteTM is designed to teach students to love music and learn to play the flute---but that is only the beginning. We have an intense desire to see each child realize their potential in all areas of their lives. Through learning to listen, finger, produce a beautiful tone, read music, compose, and creatively express themselves; students are firing areas of the brain to make learning in all areas more productive. The group lesson are carefully planned to maximize learning potential. Movement and games are a major component in the group classes so that students maintain a keen sense of alertness.
Many of the tenets of the class are based on recent research in neurogenesis (see below) and learning potential.
"Neurogenesis" literally means "birth of neurons". Neurogenesis is most prevalent during pre-natal development and is the process by which neurons are created to populate the growing brain. Contrary to what was believed 10 years ago, new research has shown that neurogenesis also can ocurr throughout life. Key factors that have proven to stimulate significant neurogenesis are exercise, a loving and supportive environment, and new and enriching experiences.
New Online KinderFlute Teacher Training Format
Wednesday, September 14th, 2022, from 11:30-1:30 EST
We are excited about the new format of dividing the class into shorter segments. (Thank you to who made this suggestion!)
The shorter classes will make it easier to absorb and process the information without being overwhelmed.
Our goal is to ensure that each teacher grows and becomes wildly successful!
Key Points and Benefits of the New Model:
1) Each month (September – June) we will have a 2-hour class
2) Recordings will be available for 30 days online.
3) Teachers will become part of the online Facebook group to ask questions in between classes.
4) The shorter classes will especially be helpful for teachers whose primary language is not English.
5) We will get to know each quite well by the end of 10 months!
6) Teaching beautiful flute tone is central to having a successful studio. If you have a student who is struggling, the best way for everyone to learn is to have a micro-tone masterclass with the student. You are welcome to ask for a micro-tone class with them. This would be recorded so that it can be shared with the other teachers.
7) The Flute Zoo books will be used throughout the class. The scope and sequence and concepts of the Blocki Flute books and the Flute Zoo books are the same, so the content will not change. Any questions specifically for Blocki Flute books will be addresses.The New Online Course begins Wednesday, September 14th, 2022, from 11:30-1:30 EST
This time makes it possible for people on the east coast, Europe and even Asia to attend without losing a lot of sleep. The longer sessions are especially difficult for our flutist whose primary language is not English. (If we have enough teachers from Asia, we will open up a separate class.)
Each of the 10 sessions will be on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.
