Music

They say that music is the universal language. Regardless of where you are from or what your background, a good melody is something that everyone can enjoy and understand. There must be something behind that, right?

Music is a fun way to stimulate speech development, provide organization for cognitive and motor development and create a meaningful environment for socialization. Keeping a steady beat develops language. Clapping hands, stomping feet and using instruments to create music develop important pre-reading skills as well. Young children recognize words, sounds, rhythms, tones, and pitches long before they talk-sing or dance. So the more music your children have in their lives, the better they will speak and read.

Research has shown that participation in music at an early age can help improve a child's learning ability and memory by stimulating different patterns of brain development.

It helps them socially

Picking up an instrument can also help your child break out of their social shell too, experts say. Socially, children who become involved in a musical group or ensemble learn important life skills, such as how to relate to others, how to work as a team and appreciate the rewards that come from working together, and the development of leadership skills and discipline.

It's a confidence builder

Are there any areas of life that aren't enhanced by having good confidence? Probably not. And if you want your child to develop their confidence, learning to play a musical instrument can help. Music is a wonderful way to address the many needs of children because music is nonjudgmental. There is no right or wrong it is just what it is.
