Why Should YOUR Child Learn Music?
Studying music contributes to the growth of a well-balanced child in sensitivity, expressiveness, and the spirit essential for functioning in a complicated world.
Music making offers children a chance to perform for (and with) others, and to develop confidence in their ability to make presentations for groups.
Music experiences often invite individual creative responses and encourage children's imagination in other creative endeavours.
As children become more skilled in singing, moving and playing instruments, they can see and hear the results of their efforts.
The many movement activities associated with music experiences develop both small muscles and large muscles. The awareness of internal steady pulse, coordinated with external movements, can help children regulate their behaviour.
Sharing music with peers and family reinforces the value of each child in the classroom, and children develop a sense of pride in their musical achievements
Learning about music requires concentration and focus. When children are asked to analyse, compare and contrast sounds, they are actively engaged in problem-solving experiences.
Singing, moving, playing instruments and listening to music are all enjoyable experiences. Music making can provide hours of personal entertainment and relaxation throughout one's entire life.
