Why should your child join the Little Flower Choir?

The Little Flower Choir is a choir specifically designed for children aged 3-7, aiming to inspire their interest in music and lay a solid foundation for their future musical learning.

The ages of 3 to 7 are the golden period for learning music. Singing not only brings joy but also has beneficial effects on both the mind and body. It is also the easiest way to introduce children to the world of music. The benefits of joining a choir are numerous and extend beyond music to various aspects of social and personal life.

In terms of music, choir singing can train their auditory skills and develop a strong sense of music perception, laying a solid foundation for their future singing, instrumental playing, and ensemble participation. In terms of child development, singing can help them with proper pronunciation, introduce them to different cultures through music, and build their self-confidence. Additionally, learning choir singing can cultivate children’s social skills and teamwork spirit.

The Little Flower Choir firmly believes that choir singing is an ideal activity for nurturing children’s growth. We look forward to collaborating with like-minded parents, creating an environment filled with music and joy, and fostering the healthy development of children.
