We want to see children reach their potential in all areas of their lives. Students
learn to listen, finger, read music, compose, produce a beautiful tone and express
Group lessons are carefully planned to maximize learning potential by using many areas
of the brain to make learning more productive. Movement and games are a major component
in the classes so students maintain a keen sense of alertness. Class size is limited to six students.
Many of the tenets of the class are based on recent research in neurogenesis and learning
potential. Neurogenesis means birth of neurons. Neurogenesis is most prevalent during
prenatal 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 occur throughout life. KinderFlute uses the Blocki Flute
