Music Program

“I believe that the main focus of music is not to play an instrument in a band or to sing in an opera.  The main purpose of teaching music is to enrich the whole child, develop their cognitive abilities, increase their learning capacity and enhance the quality of their life.” – Galina Zenin

We live in a society which is enriched by an extremely wide range of traditions and cultures represented in our world today. Everyone has a past, present and future and it’s up to us to make each of these phases in our life memorable and to live to our full potential.

Singing is one of the oldest ways of passing on traditions. And singing a capella was always the foundation of all folk music.

Throughout the day educators and parents can encourage children to follow daily routines by using songs and rhymes.

Remember, that music is like a language and should be practiced and used EVERY DAY!

The Bonkers Beat® Music Program

The Bonkers Beat® Music Program is based on the highly-regarded teaching approach of Kodaly and Orff and integrates music, singing, dancing and the playing of percussion instruments throughout the entire curriculum. Specially designed art and craft projects are linked to the themes covered in songs and are used to support the curriculum and help children learn visually.

Bonkers Beat® makes learning a joy, but above all else it enhances children’s spatial intelligence, helping them to become better learners in the early years of their primary schooling.

The entire curriculum is based on singing, dancing, moving and playing simple instruments to both develop and improve socialisation, reading skills, math skills and problem solving. The music works with the curriculum rather than as a separately taught ‘subject’ ensuring the benefits are constantly reinforcing the other elements of learning.

Every teacher and assistant contributes to the development of all children through singing, movement and playing percussion instruments. All teaching staff are trained, confident and deliver music to EVERY CHILD… EVERY DAY!

What Others Say About Bonkers Beat® Music Programs

“…When Galina approached me with the Bonkers Beat Music Program, I was immediately impressed with the range of topics covered in the songs. The manual layout was very easy to follow. Her support, advice and training also enabled me to feel confident and comfortable about holding the music sessions on my own.

The feedback from the children and parents has been fantastic. The children love having the opportunity to learn to use instruments, feel the beat, sing and move to the songs. During the last few months I have seen great changes in the confidence levels of my children. The parents are telling me that their children are singing so much more at home and sharing their new found knowledge with them.

I believe that a good music program, such as Bonkers Beat, helps children development in many areas, particularly their language, and math’s skills along with their concentration and social skills.

I would highly recommend this program to other teachers. Remember you don’t have to be a musician to use this program. You just have to enjoy music and love to sing and be with children.”Nina Lucas, Director / 4yo Teacher, Bentleigh West Kindergarten
