Music is a source of fun and happiness for many, children included. That’s why Pomelody has just launched a home-based e-learning music platform for preschoolers.
Pomelody is a comprehensive online music education system which aims to give children ages 0-6 years the chance to learn and develop through music. Parents can also enjoy the experience of having fun and bonding with their children through music, no experience necessary.
The clever idea was the brainchild of professional musicians Adam and Anna. Knowing how powerful the effect music can have on a child’s development, they set out to look for something that would let them interact with their children using music. Unable to find anything, Adam and Anna set about creating their own interactive music series, they recorded songs, music theory tutorials for parents and animated stories for kids.
The result of their hard work is a fantastic and simple to access platform for parents to embrace music along with their young children. In fact, the series is the first music-making classes for families ever put on video.
The production of the platform is nearly finished, and now, Pomelody is turning to Kickstart to secure funding of $30,000 to help develop further seasons (delivered quarterly) and to complete creating the platform.
As a series backer of Pomelody (Earlybird discount $69) you would receive the following:
- 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
Pomelody also has a second goal of $55,000 on Kickstart. This will enable Adam and Anna to develop an institutional version of Pomelody, giving free access to orphanages around the world.
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.”
