Seimpi Education

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.

Age Group (for MIM classes):  from 12 mths to 7 years old

When: classes on weekdays and weekends in 4 centres

Did you know that many geniuses such as Mozart and Alexander Graham Bell have music backgrounds?

As Albert Einstein puts it,
 “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.”
Benefits of Music & Movement
Through music and movement, young children are able to develop coordination and social skills, learn to express themselves. Music stimulates the part of the brain that learns; develops and promotes creative thinking; provides opportunities for problem-solving and decision-making. It is a means of communication, expression and helps to develop motor skills.
Hence, children are encouraged to attend classes regularly instead of hopping from one enrichment to the other. Routines are important to children especially in their early years as they need to be secure in their environment. Once they are familiar, children will be more positive to the learning process.
Enrichment hopping will not allow children to grasp routines and reap benefits of the respective enrichment programmes that they are in. Children may lose their interest in the programme. They too will be unable to bond with their friends and teacher of the programme.
Music teaches discipline which may translate to a positive habit into adulthood. In piano lessons, a child learns to set aside a specific time each day to practice usually for a minimum of 30 minutes, and to follow instructions. They learn to use their time responsibly and take care of their instrument. The downside of not being disciplined in the long run is that one loses focus. As a result, things are done slower and not on time.
Music teaches children delayed gratification, even at an early age. As a child, in class, they get to learn about turn-taking. As they get older, they will need to practice on a piece of music before they are able to play it well. The rigour and discipline is definitely the process before the performance.
Through spontaneous play, children learn how to increase their imagination, self-regulate their emotions. This contributes to their cognitive development and helps them learn how to handle different situations with a variety of different people.
Parents are able to see their children grow and have fun. A happy child also results in happy parents.
