Think about the ABC song! Why do we start off with kids learning their alphabets in the form of a song?
Music is a language, and children learn languages easily. When children learn melodic and rhythmic patterns, it develops their memory. Music helps develop the left side of the brain too. So putting in new information to a tune helps your child to remember it.
Music makes kids brain work harder. The growth of neural activity in kids is actually heightened due to music. Since they use more of their brain, it can help them further in their academics.
Brain scans of young adults revealed that those who had formal musical training before the age of seven had thicker brain regions that deal with hearing and self-awareness. They understand sounds and meaning of words better.
Preschoolers enjoy singing just to be singing. They aren’t self-conscious about their ability and most are eager to let their voices roar. They like kids’ songs that repeat words and melodies, rhythms with a definite beat, and words that ask them to do things. Preschool children enjoy nursery rhymes and songs about familiar things like toy, animals, play activities, and people. The key is repetition of songs which encourages the use of words and memorization.
Music brings kids together, and helps them socially. Through group music, kids will learn to listen to each other and share their creativity. In a world that values collaboration, this is a great skill to start learning at a young age through music.
