Music plays a huge role in a children’s life. It makes a child learn and develop a lot of skills much earlier than normal and in an easy way.
Develops a child’s language skills
When children listen to any familiar word in the songs, their brains start building connections to the sounds they hear and the words they sing. In fact, reciting rhymes and poems and singing songs with children helps them develop literacy skills much earlier.
A steady beat helps develop language . Stamping feet, clapping hands and using rhythm instruments in time to music help develop essential pre-reading skills. Children get to identify sounds, words, tines, rhythms and pitches much before they sing, dance or talk. The more music your children will have in their lives, the better they will be able to read and speak.
Develops a child’s self-esteem
Music is a fantastic way of addressing the different needs of children because it is non-judgemental. There is no wrong or no right, it’s just what it is. Listening to various kinds of music nurtures the self-esteem and encourages self confidence, curiosity and creativity.
Develops a child’s listening skills
Music gives you the opportunity to enhance your listening skills and thus your concentration level. The songs encourage auditory discrimination. Through music, children can learn to hear dynamics, melodies and tempos. There are many shops that sell children’s music online. You can buy a music CD from there and then play it at your child’s convenience. Let him/her listen the soft and loud, down and up, and slow and fast music because that encourages auditory developments in the brain.
Makes transition easy
You can get your children moving from one activity to another quickly if you sing a song. For instance, if you tune up the words “it’s time to go to lunch” you will see that children will get ready faster for lunch. So, keep making versus.
