How to help your Children learn with music!

Friday, 29 September 2017

For those of you that don't know, Pomelody is a comprehensive online music education system for children 0-6 and their families. In short it is the world’s first music education e-learning platform for infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers.

Designed from the ground up to stimulate a child’s music potential while giving parents (even those of us with no music ability!) an opportunity to bond and have fun.


Having reached its Kickstarter target in just 10 daysPomelody is now targeting its stretch goal of $55,000 on Kickstarter which will enable the development of an institutional version of the platform giving free access to underprivileged children, such as in orphanages, around the world. Music can have an important therapeutic effect for children escaping from war or natural disasters and offers a positive escape.

Pomelody the world’s first music e-learning platform for infants, toddlers and preschoolers, managed a Kickstarter campaign with the aim to bring fun, family-bonding music education to children and parents everywhere.


The idea 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. There was very little musical content available and what was available was unstructured. They set about designing, testing and recording a series of specially recorded songs, music theory tutorials for parents and animated stories for kids. The result is the first simple to access (online via PC, laptop or tablet), fun and engaging platform for parents to embrace music along with their young children. Indeed, the first music-making classes for families ever put on video.

The production of content (season one is finalized) and building the platform is nearly finished. Pomelody has used Kickstarter to successfully secure funding of $30,000 to help develop further seasons (delivered quarterly via PC, laptop and tablet) and to finish the platform build.



So, what exactly do you get as a series backer of Pomelody, firstly a Kickstarter special price $109 instead of $149, but also

· Collection of 25 songs - composed, recorded and produced with 12 different bands / artists
· 10 Pomelody classes recorded
· One songbook
· 3 animated lectures with music theory for parents
· Animated stories

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.

I absolutely believe this yo be true. I am a huge music lover so Liv has been brought up around music her whole life, from singing nursery rhymes to making up her own songs with her musical instruments, I feel music has had a big impact on her learning. Also it is fun which means it is a great way to bond, best of all your little ones don't even know they are learning! I can't wait to give Pomelody a try!
