The benefits of music in a child’s education

It is said that music is our universal language. That is why it isn’t hard to guess why studying a musical instrument is beneficial to a child’s life. From birth, parents use music instinctively to calm children, to express their love and joy but also to interact with them. The next step is to see what impact music can have on a child’s development, on improving his social skills, in other words to discover all the benefits that music can bring to all children, regardless of their age.

 

Music stimulates brain development

 

More and more studies show the link between exceptional learning outcomes and child exposure to music. Music stimulates those parts of the brain that are responsible for reading, learning math and emotional development.

 

Music improves memory

 

Music helps children to better remember things from the faraway past or recent past. In other words, it fixes memories. That is why it is good for the child to learn play an instrument in his first years of life, or to listen to music since his birth (of course, music appropriate to his age: Mozart or other soothing music).

 

Music determines the child to become bolder

 

The study of an instrument can improve communication skills, experts say. Children who are part of a chorus or other musical group will know how to communicate more effectively with others, collaborate in teams and appreciate the rewards that come from the activities undertaken together. Also, the study of music helps them develop their leadership skills and learn how to become organized.

 

Music makes him more confident

 

Self-confidence moves mountains out of place - with confidence (which later turns into courage), the child, who becomes later on in life an adult, will manage to achieve more easily his goals. The study of an instrument helps the child discover his abilities at an early age and thus realize he can solve difficult situations (such as, deciphering a music score) and that, repeating and persevering, things will go out better.

 

 

 

Music teaches him to be patient

 

Nowadays we are taught to receive what we want immediately, we have lost our patience. But when the child is part of a band or a small orchestra, he must learn to be patient until his turn comes to play his instrument. Otherwise nothing is understood from the score! What other easy way to exercise good temper?

 

Music helps him relax

 

And not only that, it also helps him establish links with the members of the musical group he is part of. Music creates connections between children of the same generation or between children and parents. And at the same time it helps him relax, empathize and leave aside, for a while, excessive worries. Not to mention that any relaxation that is not related to food or surfing the internet is more than welcoming.

 

 

Music develops creativity

 

Beyond the fact that music keeps his mind always busy and helps him develop the ability to learn permanently which will lead him to constantly adapt to the changes he will encounter later in life, music develops his creativity - whether he interprets a well-known musical score in his own style, whether he wants to compose a song himself. And creativity is beneficial to both mind, body and soul.

 

Bringing music to your child’s life can only have advantages. A good dose of Mozart will probably not increase your child’s intelligence, but it will definitely make his life more beautiful. Music can animate and enrich our lives.

The arts are valued in our family, especially music. It’s so wonderful when you can incorporate music into their education. We have had to book additional courses, since it’s not offered within the school day.

My daughter shows interests in music. She learns easier when we put a tune on it. I will enroll her on a music lesson in the future.

I definitely believe this. I have also heard that it’s beneficial to play music to the baby while pregnant too.

This is all so true! I didn’t join choir until high school but I wish I’d done it sooner. Music taught me to socialize with different people, gave me a sense of accomplishment, and taught me to think in a different way.

I love the idea of introducing music to a child as early as possible. There is something special about the structure and friendship being a musician brings!

Both my kids take music lessons, and it has been a wonderful experience. It is amazing to see them evolve as well. My daughter started piano last year and it is incredible to see her be able to read music and progress so much.
