Music in our house has always been a big part of our lives. Both my husband and I played musical instruments during our younger years and Shilts was previously a DJ with a love of music running through his veins. This of course has transferred to our son, Olly who loves nothing more than spending half an hour listening to music whilst he’s relaxing after a busy day at school. There’s always a CD on in the car or the radio is on in the background at home whilst we’re getting some jobs done around the house.
As music has so many benefits for our family, I was really interested in hearing more about a new e-learning platform for children, Pomelody.
What is Pomelody?
Pomelody is a comprehensive music education system for infants, toddlers and preschoolers and their families. It’s the first in the world e-learning platform for children. Music education brings countless benefits for young minds and Pomelody was designed to make it easily accessible for everyone.
Pomelody believe their music education system is a similar to a combination of both Netflix and Spotify. There’s filmed classes, songs, song books, animated series and animated lectures all designed for families to access when they can. There’s no classes to join and you don’t even have to leave the house.
What benefits are there of using Pomelody?
There are so many benefits for the whole family of using Pomelody;
- It’s a chance for the whole family to have some quality time together to enjoy music, dancing around and making their own music whilst exploring their creativity. This time together can help build bonds and improve non-verbal communication.
- Music stimulates children’s brain activity resulting in increased IQ, creativity and language skills.
- The filmed classes and animated series are fun for children to watch and will encourage them to learn through play.
- Pomelody is easily accessible on your phone, laptop or tablet. There’s no rushing to make a class, no worrying about ‘not fitting in’ with the rest of the class as your class will be wherever you watch it. Invite your friends around and make your own.
Adam, Weber founder of Pomelody, said:
“Music is such a powerful medium to stimulate a child’s imagination. Its benefits stretch way beyond childhood with many reports suggesting that it can boost an individual’s adult IQ by up to 18%, compared to children with no early years music exposure. Whilst this is motivation in itself, it’s the sheer joy and bonding between a child and its parents that makes interacting with music so magical. With Pomelody we have a created a unique opportunity for families to bond, to learn, to have fun and to stimulate the next generation. We are very excited to bring this project to market and, fingers crossed, we can achieve our stretch goal and give free access to underprivileged children around the world.”
