Pomelody launches to give children the gift of learning and development through music.
Our children love music and with a husband that is the musical educator in our house we were thrilled to see a new platform aimed at pre-schoolers who love music launch.
Pomelody offers the ability to have fun and connect with their children, providing a very valuable musical education for our younglings. As a parent of 3 this type of platform is invaluable to me. With the winter coming and outdoor activity as a minimum it is essential that we have activities in the home that are engaging but also active – wearing the kids out is a must. Music is one thing that always guarentees my children are engaged. They love to dance and sing but I often find myself lost in what to sing/play with them as well as what is age appropriate for all 3. It’s a difficult task to cover all bases for all 3 and thats where I think Pomelody does very well. Fizz, 7, would be able to help lead the boys 1 &3, into bonding with not just me but her through a love of music and sometimes very interpretive dance!
“… It’s the sheer joy and bonding between a child and its parents that makes music so magical.”
The idea behind the came from professional musicians Adam and Anna who, whilst raising a young family and knowing how powerfully music impacts on a child’s development, tried to find musical content that they could use in order to interact with their children.
This great platform is now looking to extend their reach and the capacity of what they can do by launching a Kickstarter programme. They was to make sure the site reaches it’s full potential so are looking for backers that can help them finish building this fabulous platform. We have guitars and regular music sessions in our house so it will be great to be able to supplement this with the less musical parent (me!!).
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.”
The site is aimed at children aged 0-6 years of age and their families. It is a way to bond and have fun whilst also learning about music, stimulates them in how music is made and can be used in line with home or nursery education. I think this is a brilliant idea for those who struggle with set activities and helps parents increase their own confidence as well as the child’s.
You can support this great project with a backing as low as £5 which is just about a coffee and a cake in terms of parenting costs 😉
I’d love for you to go and take a look and let me know what you think!
