Arlene Leroux (BAPsych)
Licensed Kindermusik Educator
Arlene is a mum of two who discovered Kindermusik over 10 years ago, when she attended classes with her daughter, from “Village” baby classes all through to the “Imagine That” pre-school music program.
Over the years, her daughter attended many other activities, but those Kindermusik experiences became so very dear and memorable to both of them. It has given her daughter a great start at school – socially, academically, musically, and in nurturing her creative, artistic side.
Arlene tried a different music program for her son, but it didn’t compare with the winning formula the Kindermusik program had on offer – a quality early childhood curriculum that is effective, educational and lots of fun, leading to her decision to use her passion in and knowledge of music to become a Kindermusik Educator herself.
“What I love about Kindermusik is how on the ‘outside’, our musical activities are deceptively easy, delightfully engaging and so much fun to do, but on the ‘inside’, each single one of these activities have been carefully researched and designed to optimise a child’s learning potential within their age group, addressing different learning domains – language, music awareness, vocal development, social skills, balance and coordination, and emotional intelligence.
In other words: There’s a reason we do what we do!”
Arlene hails from a family of musicians – her mum, now in her 70s, is still teaching piano. Her dad was a high school teacher who studied Opera and sang tenor, even recording his own repertoire.
Growing up in a very musical household, she wants to inspire other families to create a musical environment at home and reap the benefits of early exposure to music education for their own children.
Arlene has a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of New England, formal qualifications in AMEB Grade 7 Pianoforte and Level 4 Music Theory.
As a hobby, she sings each week in an all-women’s choir, Mothersong, and endeavours to practise Yoga regularly.
“As a mum of two lovely children, I know myself how fleeting and short these wonderful childhood times are. They do grow up so quickly! So my advice to each parent is to take advantage of these younger years, enjoy your child’s company, wallow in their beautiful presence, and strive to create a loving musical environment at home! They will thank you for it!”
