MFA-Learning Experiences

Miami Children's Museum (MCM), in partnership with the New World Symphony, will redesign its Music and Sounds Gallery into a pavilion providing children, primarily ages four to eight, with a stimulating and interactive musical experience involving kinesthetic, auditory, and visual modalities. The museum seeks to provide the perfect physical environment for exposing children to musical experiences that enhance the development of their minds and bodies, while also serving their expressive, emotional, intellectual, social, and creative needs. Various studies have found that musical intelligence has a place of importance together with logical, kinesthetic, interpersonal, and intrapersonal intelligence. The exhibition will use the process of play to engage children in a variety of music-based activities incorporated into eight distinctive program components that support Florida's Early Learning Standards.
