Brain-ertainment is entertainment for growing brains. It combines fun, learning, and engaging experiences all in one package. At PIE Labs, we believe that children deserve more than simple entertainment or tedious instruction. With care and thoughtful design (and a generous sprinkling of imagination), we are confident that media experiences can help children learn, can be fun, and can create powerful imaginations.
Grown-ups should pre-read the guides before involving kids. Children can listen to the songs while youíre reviewing activity ideas or they can explore some of our activity pages.
Kids will absolutely still benefit from listening, playing with, and
enjoying the songs and other content all on its own. Remember- active
listening, singing-along, familiarization with musical concepts (like
high and low, fast and slow, or instrument names and sounds) are all
developmentally-appropriate activities for 4-7 year old children. Your
child will practice these just by enjoying our CDs and digital
downloads. The parent guides are designed to enhance your music
experiences. and are for you to use when it best suits you. Some people
use them a little, some people use them a lot. Theyíre not meant to be
homework Ė theyíre meant to be fun!

is music so important for kids?
We're going to give children the basic building blocks of music that include both explicit learning objectives and important social/emotional objectives. A few examples of developmentally-appropriate learning objectives include fundamentals like: understanding beat; learning about pitch, tempo, and dynamics; learning how to sing, and more. Examples of social/emotional objectives include concepts such as: invention or creation of music, self- expression, and understanding of different cultures. In addition to these types of objectives, we're passionate about sharing musical notions that everyday people treasure Ė things like music as motivation, music as a connection to the past, music as a connection to other people, etc. Most importantly, we want to teach kids and kid champions that everybody can create experience and enjoy music. Music and art are for everyone and for everyday.
