Music Class for Children - Why it is important?

Did you know music can positively impact your child's growth and benefit them in a bucket full of ways?

Children in this competitive world are more stressed than happy, due to the number of responsibilities and tasks put on their shoulders and the constant pressure to score better, eat better, learn better and be BETTER! This pressure is inevitable and sometimes necessary for growth, but at the same time, the stress can be released, and life can be made more fun if a proper BALANCE is maintained. This can be done by including more relaxing and joy-giving extracurricular activities in their daily routine. One of the best stress-busting exercises is MUSIC. It will not only help the children to relieve tension but will also provide them with tons of other benefits which are essential for their overall development.

 

Wondering how exposing kids to music from an early age can benefit them?

Studies show children who are associated with music from their younger years, understand rhythm better, are quicker at language learning and in the long run, perform effectively at academics, develop exceptional social skills and have a strong memory. You want to understand how? Let us make it easier for you by explaining the benefits of music lessons in detail. Let's get started!

1. It boosts self-confidence:

Music classes help children gain a new skill which will stay with them throughout their lives. Learning something new gives them a sense of accomplishment and highly boosts their confidence. If they learn to play a specific instrument, they can master it over time, and this will not only make them satisfied but will also help them build trust in their own skills and abilities.

2. Aids Brain development:

When children are exposed to music from an early age, they start understanding the sounds and meanings of new words quicker. This makes learning languages easier for them and also makes their memory stronger. Researchers have proven that musical training considerably accelerates the brain development of young children and helps to synchronize the child’s brain and bodies. Children who learn music are also known to perform better at academics.

3. Releases stress:

It gives the children a break from the hectic routines and makes their mind more peaceful and calm. It allows them to learn something new, and at the same time engage in an activity which helps them relax and reduce whining. Tones and sounds are known to heal in unimaginable ways.

4. Is a form for self-expression:

Music gives the children an opportunity to express themselves. It makes it easier for them to put out their emotions through lyrics, sounds and tunes. When it comes to dealing with small children it's even more helpful because at times they truly don't know how to put their feelings into words and they might find it easier to convey it through music.

5. Improves social skills:

When children take up music classes, they meet a lot of people and also make new friends. This teaches them teamwork and makes them learn the art of adjusting and co-operation. Let them be a part of a singing group and they will discover more things about team building and developing efficient relationships.

6. Teaches discipline and patience:

Learning music is not a one-day affair and requires a lot of time and sincere efforts. When the children continuously practice singing or learn to play an instrument they start developing patience. They understand how it requires a lot of time and constant discipline to play a perfect song or sing the four lines correctly. They recognize that missing the classes too often, will make them lose touch of what was previously taught and they will have to restart everything. This helps promote discipline and patience in the kids.

7. Makes children happy:

When children listen to music and start dancing (moving their adorable little hands and legs) their brain releases a feel-good chemical called dopamine which makes them happy. This also happens with adults and that is the reason why people absolutely enjoy listening, singing and playing music. Also, music classes help them unleash their creativity and allows them to create things of their own which makes them feel satisfied and accomplished. The good news is, it also reduces toddler tantrums.

8. Helps them find a passion:

Learning music from an early age will not only help them walk down the road of growth and development but will also help them discover their passion. Many children might develop a strong liking towards music which will encourage them to make a career out of it. Also, starting from the younger years gives the children ample time to brush up on their weaknesses and improve tremendously through practice. By the time they grow up, they will have mastered the art of music and will be thankful to have started at the right time.

 

So go get them enrolled for a fun and unwinding music class. We are sure you don't want to be late and miss out on the plenty of benefits that early music learning can have for your kids! Pro tip: Apart from music the kids should also be exposed to lots of other interesting activities (Can link the hobby article here) like reading, dancing, swimming, (Please link the swimming article if published before this one) cooking, public speaking and many more in their childhood days. This will not only help them to learn new skills but also to gain confidence and lead a more happy and flourishing life. How about answering some simple questions before you leave?
