Philosophy & Concept - Music and The Mind
Rhapsody’s philosophy of “Education Through Music” is underscored by findings on Music and the brain. Music activates a greater proportion of the whole brain, and has been shown to be highly effective in impacting both immediate and long-term memory of a child. Academic mapping of subject concepts (Mathematics, Sciences, Social Sciences, Languages including English Learning) to musical exercises, activities and songs has resulted in a syllabus which has about 460 lesson plans (from Kindergarten to Class VIII). Lessons in the Rhapsody methodology also cover a spectrum of age-appropriate songs from a variety of genres and contexts.
