The fact that MUSIC IS FUN should not be underestimated. Stimulating, FUN activities like playing music will capture and hold children's deepest interests. Music has the dual powers of being able to satisfy youngsters strong craving for activity and provide them with lessons for a lifetime.
Making music increases
children's intelligence. It actually improves various cognitive skills,
including their social, observational, analytical & mathematic skills. 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, science & yes, music).
Music has been found to stimulate every area of the developing brain, and several 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 wonderful developmental opportunities.
In short, music provides a healthy, natural and truly invaluable opportunity for individual expression. It encourages the development of the whole child by enhancing cognitive, social, physical, and emotional skills.
