Amarant Music

Kindergarten 2016

Benefits Overview :

  • World-class music education for a small fraction of the cost, both in time and money, of traditional methods.
  • With regular assessments and a data-driven design, districts using Amarant programs can be sure of their schools’ music education quality, and its consistency from school to school.
  • Studies show that students who sing with each other each day connect with each other better, have fewer fights, and fewer disciplinary issues.
  • Encourages and supports parental involvement with any-time access
  • With any-time access for parents, children and their families share music in the home, which has been shown to bring the family closer together, and foster education.
  • Following our World Music program, students will be exposed to many cultures and languages, gaining a better understanding and appreciation of both other world cultures, and their own.
  • Amarant Education’s goal is to see every child achieve true and superior music literacy by the end of 5th grade.
  • With a fully music-literate student body, middle and high school bands and choirs will see their programs set ahead by years
  • Every moment traditionally spent teaching students the basics (and the advanced parts) of music can instead be spent training them on instrument and choral technique With a much greater exposure to music, more students will have the chance to feel connected and drawn to music, increasing the enrolment rates in band and choir
    Early and constant ear and voice training will provide deeply-ingrained musical skills at the most impressionable ages
  • Famous studies on the cognitive benefits of learning music, such as a measurably increased IQ, are predicated the type of musical literacy generally only seen in later middle and high school band and choir students; with superior music literacy achieved in elementary schools, these benefits will now be enjoyed by everyone, and from an earlier age.
  • E.g. Students who took music lessons in grades 8-12 increased their math scores significantly, as compared to non-music students; even better, their reading, history, geography, and even social skills improved by an average of 40%. (Gardiner, Fox, Jeffrey and Knowles, 1996) E.g. Children given piano lessons significantly improved their spatial-temporal IQ scores – important for mathematical reasoning – compared to children who received computer lessons, casual singing, or no lessons at all. (Rauscher, F.H., et al., 1997) E.g. High school music students have been shown to hold higher GPAs than non-musicians in the same school. (National Educational Longitudinal Study, 1988)
