There’s a reason why nursery rhymes have been sung to children since the 16th century. There’s no denying the power of music education when it comes to the overall development of children. Studies consistently show that musical training develops the area of the brain responsible for processing language. This can positively impact both language and comprehension skills.
The more children are exposed to music, the more they’re able to practice speaking in a fun and effective way. By partaking in group musical education classes, children learn more about syllables and rhyming as well as practicing their listening skills.
Enhancing Cognitive and Academic Abilities
There’s a strong correlation between exposure to music education in childhood and overall academic success. Music education facilitates learning in other subjects such as mathematics and language, helping promote critical thinking skills.
Music education also promotes consistency and commitment, helping children understand that hard work yields positive results, benefitting them in all areas of life.
Promoting Emotional and Social Development
Step by Step Nursery offers weekly music and movement programmes to improve emotional and social development in children. By regularly listening to music, experimenting with new instruments and singing fun songs, children are able to express their emotions and feelings in a safe and constructive environment.
Music education helps improve overall composure and self-regulation skills, helping children remain calm when overwhelmed. This promotes problem-solving capabilities and helps your children develop both emotionally and socially.
