We want to help children play musical instruments
Here at Octopus, we have developed an education grant program which can match up to your spend on ukuleles, pound for pound!
Music can play a big part in child development. It can be seen in the full range of skills that a child masters over their life span, including cognition (learning and problem solving), social interaction, communication skills, physical skills (fine motor and whole body), and sensory awareness. Learning a musical instrument can introduce skills for school readiness, and can ultimately help our bodies and minds work together.
Octopus are committed to help young children benefit from learning a musical instrument at an early age. Research shows that learning a musical instrument improves both cognitive and muscle memory, and assists in development of the left side of our brains. Learning to play a musical instrument such as the ukulele can enhance verbal memory, spatial reasoning and literacy skills. It is great fun too.
