Our kids love music just as much as we do – most kids do, right? So we were more than happy to have the chance to do a Pomelody review after hearing about the campaign.
What is Pomelody?
Pomelody is described as the world’s first “music education system for infants, toddlers and preschoolers and their families”.
It’s aim is to give children an easily accessible platform to nuture their natural abilities. They don’t need to be Mozart, this is to help all kids have the benefit of music education!
The Pomelody founders, Adam and Anna, are passionate about how music can truly benefit children in many ways. In their early years, their own parents provided them with music education. However they understand that this just isn’t possible for all families. In fact, their initial dream was to provide orphaned children the gift of music education for free.
So they created Pomelody and composed their own music for kids to enjoy that assists their developments too. They truly believe in the benefits of music education for kids.
Why is Pomelody good for kids?
It promises to:
- stimulate kids brain activity
- build strong family and community bonds
- help build communication skills
- help kids express themselves through sound
- be fun!
- be convenient for parents – it can be accessed anywhere
How you can help Pomelody reach more children
For Pomelody to become available to the masses, the founders need to build an additional version of their platform. It needs to have a new set of Pomelody classes dedicated to kids education institutions. This would have instructions for teachers and caregivers in orphanages to learn skills to provide music education.
To fund this, they have created a Kickstarter campaign. They need to raise $30,000 US to build upon and finish the platform. If you believe in what Pomelody promises, you can support them! They also have a stretch goal of $55,000 US which would mean they can offer Pomelody free to orphanages around the world. This dream could be ready to go live as early as December. Just in time for Christmas!
By supporting the Pomelody kickstarter campaign, you will get:
- a $69 US earlybird discount
- 10 Pomelody classes
- 25 songs from 12 different bands or artists
- 3 animated lectures with music theory for parents
- animated stories
- 1 songbook
What do we think of Pomelody?
For me, the founders mission to help orphaned children hit a nerve for me, in a very good way. In 2007, I worked for a month as a carer at an orphanage in Xi’an, China. The time I spent there, with babies and very small children, was life-changing for me. It put so much of my life and the privileges I have in perspective.
It also made me realise how very simple things bring joy to children and of course I’ve learned that so much more since becoming a mother myself.
Music is a very big part of our family’s life – we all love to listen to music and to sing. My kids love to create their own ‘music’ and despite the noise, I love seeing them experiment and express themselves.
I strongly believe in the power of music to bring joy to people of all ages.
I love how Pomelody can be used by anyone, anywhere. It just isn’t possible for all families to attend, or afford, music lessons for their kids. I’ve listened to some of the songs and they’re so beautifully done.
