Music is with us almost everywhere we go – it fills the air in supermarkets, gives life to our celebrations, and turns every car journey into a sing-along adventure.
Engaging with music in early childhood nurtures emotional intelligence, fostering social skills as children learn to share songs, move together in rhythm, and express the feelings that arise from the melodies they hear. Whether it’s through playing simple instruments, singing along, or just bopping to the beat, these musical experiences help our children with all aspects of their life. Read along to find more ways music can help children’s learning and growth.
Accelerates Language Learning
Science has shown that learning music requires the same parts of the brain as those involved in learning a language. In addition, language skills such as verbal memory, literacy, and verbal intelligence have been shown to benefit strongly from musical training.
Helps Form the Building Blocks of Mathematical Learning
Music involves patterns and repetition, just like math. When a child learns to read music, the symbols on the sheet tell them what keys to press on a piano or strings to pass the bow across on a violin. This kind of pattern recognition is a fundamental building block of mathematical learning. Additionally, understanding music can help children visualize various elements that should go together – just like they do when solving a problem in math.
Improves Focus and Memory
While it seems that so many things can distract from a child’s ability to focus and remember things, musical education does the opposite. Even the beginner piano player playing a short song exercises focus, hand-eye coordination, and memory. The more children practice, the more they begin to hone and develop these skills, which benefit all other aspects of their educational learning.
An education in music is one of the most effective ways to boost a child’s confidence and self-esteem. Learning to play an instrument or singing provides a sense of achievement, and as children practice and improve, they gain a degree of competence and self-assurance. Performing, whether it be at a recital, or for family and friends, can also be incredibly empowering for children and further enhance their confidence and self-esteem.
