NYZ: Little Bodhisattvas Music Program

February 20 @ 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm

Zen Meditation, Music, and Movement Classes for Early Childhood

(babies, toddlers, preschoolers | Ages 0 – 5 years)

With Parent/Caretaker

This is a 45-minute meditation, music, and movement class for 0-5 year-old children with adult participation (caretaker or parent). In each class we introduce temple percussion instruments and incorporate them in the music. This is an age-appropriate class where children get their energy out with music and movement but also learn to regulate their emotions by short meditation.

Instructor:
Dewi Puspita earned her music degree in classical composition from Showa University of Music in Japan. She also earned a degree in Early Childhood Education from BMCC CUNY. She is a registered Music Together Teacher. Representing women composers from Indonesia, her music was performed in Rome, Italy, in 2009 through Fondazione Adkins Chiti, a member of UNESCO International Music Council. She also won an honorable mention from USA Songwriting competition in 2009 and was a finalist in the UK Songwriting Competition 2013. She created Bali Healing Music, a collection of music mainly inspired by Buddhism and Childhood Music Library — a collection of classical rearrangements of nursery rhymes — as an inspiration from the research of Mozart Effect in children. Currently she is an early childhood professional at a pre-K classroom in Manhattan and works at Research Foundation CUNY as a teaching assistant for Early Childhood Education faculty at BMCC. She is constantly learning and researching on how to teach children in early childhood meditation, mindfulness, and music.
