Get your groove on, kiddos! Pat’s Schoolhouse is hosting their first-ever Music Festival at Marina Barrage with lots of dancing, musical instruments and games
Music should be no stranger to your little one’s life, mama! Studies have shown the brain-boosting effects of music lessons on young children’s memories and executive function, which is no wonder so many preschools involve lots of song and dance for development in babies and toddlers. Pat’s Schoolhouse is one such preschool, so they’re holding a super fun Music Festival on Saturday, 6 October 2018 to celebrate their 30th anniversary!
As one of Singapore’s leading and longest-established early education providers, the Pat’s Schoolhouse Music Festival will showcase their commitment to enhancing their curriculum with music. The festival aims to demonstrate how Pat’s integrates music into learning as part of the everyday classroom curriculum, through exciting activities for all ages!
Mass Dance Extravaganza
Watch Pat’s students perform cultural dances to music from different parts of the world over three sessions! Stay on for a freestyle percussion jamming session. Grown-ups are welcome to join in a combined dance performance!
Mass Busking Activities
Practising rhythm, fluidity and coordination development begins with activities like the Parachute Dance, performed by Pat’s teachers and students! You also wouldn’t want to a teacher-led drumming session using gym balls. Everyone’s invited to sing and play along to songs using the exercise balls!
Goodie Bags & Lucky Draws
Head there early to be one of the first 2000 attendees and get a goodie bag worth $30, mama! Plus, be sure to participate in the hourly lucky draw happening from 4pm to 7pm. Prizes include an iPad, a hotel staycation, movie tickets and tickets to Universal Studios Singapore!
