Why Music              

(http://www.lpmusic.com/Play_Like_A_Pro/Rhythm_To_Kids/intro_rhythm1.html)

The following article from LPMusic.com reviews many of the wonderful benefits of music.  It discusses specific ways in which children's lives are improved through music and reveals several universal ways in which everyone benefits from music, after all, music is a Universal Language, fitting for all ages of people and cultures.

Music has the power to engage, relax, and energize us… and has also been shown to make Children smarter. In studies conducted by early childhood specialists, preschoolers who received regular music lessons over several months showed marked advantages over their playmates who did not. Children dramatically improved their abilities to work mazes, copy patterns of color, and draw geometric figures. These skills reflect spatial intelligence, the foundation for more complex types of reasoning (such as those used in math and science).

Music has been found to stimulate every area of the developing brain, and similar studies with youngsters have linked early musical exposure to superior motor skills and even social abilities. Although the ability to learn continues throughout life, hands-on participation in music between the ages of three and ten seems to train the brain for higher thinking, and children who miss out on the fun of playing music may also miss some critical developmental opportunities.

Essentially, music provides a healthy, natural and invaluable opportunity for individual expression while encouraging the development of the whole child, enhancing cognitive, social, physical, and emotional skills.

The fact that MUSIC IS FUN should not be underestimated. Stimulating, amusing activities like playing music will capture and hold your child’s interest and satisfy their craving for fun, while providing them with invaluable lessons that will endure the rest of their lives.


How Playing Music Can Benefit Your Child

Aids academic aptitudes in mathematics, science, and the arts

Promotes large and small motor development

Increases scholastic participation

Teaches the value of achieving goals

Cultivates concentration and focused listening

Fosters early vocal development and enhanced social abilities

Bolsters self image and self assurance

Encourages parent/child bonding

Inspires self-sufficiency and appreciation for teamwork

Gaining Confidence with Rhythm
Rhythm is inherent in all of us, and is a life-affirming natural aspect of the human experience. As such, there is no reason for fear of failure. With simple experimentation, you will intuitively find your own unique rhythmic voice.


Because children learn by example, what a wonderful gift you can give a child by learning music with them. By discovering your own rhythmic voice, you not only show them how to discover their own, but you demonstrate that “new” and “different” things need not arouse fear or self-consciousness. You are teaching that life’s simplest “adventures” can be deeply gratifying.

Music produces a kind of pleasure that human nature cannot do without.
-Confucius
(551 BCE - 479 BCE)
