Music training enhances brain function. Studies have shown that early experiences of childhood determine how well brain cells (neurons) will connect with other brain cells. If stimulated correctly during early childhood, these neuron connectors develop rapidly, and at Seimpi they are thus looking at ways to develop the whole brain.
Music for the Intelligent Mind (MIM®) programs aims to do just that. With the proprietary and carefully planned syllabus, at SEIMPI MIM they gradually guide students from a tender age of 12 mths to the age of 7 to explore the richness and excitement of music through interesting play, activities and musical games. Unlike other early childhood music courses that only emphasize listening and music movement, at Seimpi they also incorporate eye and ear training, speed reading, pitch training, memorizing techniques, concentration training, proper playing techniques, music theory. All activities at Seimpi MIM involve stimulating the inter-connectivity between the two hemispheres of the brain by engaging in holistic and all-rounded music training. MIM ® provides a seamless transition into music graded studies.
MIM ® progression levels:
- MIM ® Jumpstart (12 to 23 mths)
- MIM ® Playtime (2 years old)
- MIM ® In Me (3 years old)
- MIM ® Encore (4-7 years old) (pre-Grade 1 level)
In Seimpi, they also conduct individual lessons (for all ages) in piano (classical/pop/jazz), violin, guitar, ukulele, vocal, musical theatre, performance diplomas. In addition, Seimpi also conducts an accelerated music program SMART & Teaching Diplomas (including Early Childhood Music) under Seimpi Academy.

“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”
