Old Lyme, CT (PRWEB) June 22, 2011
There’s no denying the value that music learning brings to a child. Now, for the first time, your child can learn – really learn – music skills at home with The Tuneables! This new DVD/CD collection, sponsored by the Music Intelligence Project, takes a unique approach to music education by introducing fun characters that encourage children to participate in songs and activities that provide rhythm, tonal, and voice development in a carefully sequenced approach. It provides critical learning experiences at a time when schools and other traditional sources are cutting budgets for music programs.
Typical music DVDs/CDs encourage kids to sing and dance along, or passively listen—not to learn music fundamentals. Real music learning provided by The Tuneables requires focused attention and active participation. Based on years of proven practical experience and research, The Tuneables is a 30-minute interactive animated DVD and CD series that teaches key music skills in the most enjoyable way, with great animation, engaging characters, entertaining story lines, and beautiful original music. The educational level is such that the program can be used at home as well as in schools.
“We are thrilled to introduce the most comprehensive program on the market designed to teach the fundamentals of music to children,” said Jill Todd, president and CEO of the Music Intelligence Project.
“The Tuneables is a great tool for cultivating music learning in preschoolers and an ideal way to share the wonders of music with your child.”
Todd , the daughter of parents who have doctorates in music and education, understands the process and the importance of learning music. She has guided the development of this program that goes well beyond simple enjoyment, and introduces kid’s to the building blocks of comprehensive musical skills and understandings.
With The Tuneables, music learning never looked or sounded so good! Children enjoy watching and listening to the magical world of Tuneville as the delightful Tuneables characters encourage them to hear and sing tonal patterns in songs, develop their rhythmic skills, expand the range of their singing voices, and become immersed in the sounds and melodies of classical music. Each character resembles a musical instrument and displays a distinct personality that thoroughly engages children ages 3-8 in age-appropriate music development. With The Tuneables, kids “hear it, do it, and name it,” which builds on aural perception, kinesthetic response and verbal association.
With The Tuneables, adults don’t need special knowledge about music in order to teach it to their children. Parents and educators can download free companion guides that provide in-depth information about their child’s learning and how to expand the musical experiences provided in the DVD.
The Tuneables is a great way to keep little minds learning over the summer, help youngsters succeed during the school year, or delight them with a holiday gift that both kids and parents will love.
The Tuneables 2-disc set is available online at http://www.thetuneables.com/ for $29.99. Downloadable versions, including HD, are also available. A Music Box CD is sold separately, for $14.99 and is available for download.
