The power of music engagement makes a substantial impact on the way your child develops. Music engagement can come from singing in the car, dancing in the living room, playing an instrument or singing along to our Touch and Feel boards. All of these activities can help your child interact with music and further their development academically, socially and physically.
Music is a part of every day life, every culture and every ounce of history. We all have some sort of relationship with music and while every relationship is unique in its own right, the relationship between a child and music may perhaps be the most interesting.
Being involved in music during the early stages of development has the ability to improve:
Speech and vocabulary: Singing songs and saying rhymes on a regular basis are proven to enhance early language and communication skills and broaden your child’s vocabulary.
Brainpower and memory: Actively participating in music has been shown to strengthen children’s cognitive and memory skills even more so than if they were simply listening.
Movement and coordination: Moving to music, playing instruments and using props give children of all ages a chance to improve their gross and fine motor skills.
Complete engagement: Children enjoy an all-round sensory experience, with the opportunity to be seeing, touching, listening, singing and moving. For pre-schoolers, interpreting picture symbols touching the 3D objects and learning to read, improves visual processing skills.
Love for music: Our Touch and Feel boards help children to discover an appreciation for music that will last a lifetime.
Keep in mind that you do not need to have any musical skill to help your child interact with music, as there are lots of fun and effective options out there!
What better way to introduce your child to music than through play?
