Children and Music: Benefits of music in child development

Singing and music play an important role in our culture. You'll find music present in many aspects of our lives: theatre, television, movies, worship, holidays, celebrations, and government and military ceremonies. At home, music can become part of our family cultures - a natural part of our everyday experiences.

Studies have proven that musical experiences in childhood can actually accelerate brain development, particularly in the areas of language acquisition and reading skills. Research also indicates that learning how to play an instrument can also improve mathematical skills.

It helps the body and the mind work together. Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words. Dancing to music helps children build motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression. For children and adults, music helps strengthen memory skills.

In addition to the developmental benefits, simply put: music bring us joy. Just think about listening to a good song in the car with the window down on a beautiful day. That's joy
