Children 10 Reasons why your child should participate in musical activities

June 29, 201694

Here at Musica we believe that children and music are like crackers and cheese-they are made for each other! With many educational settings putting a child’s musical educational down the list of priorities, here are some reasons why you might want to get music back on the agenda for your child.

1. Bonding – Music, particularly singing has been shown to strengthen and maintain the bond between mother and baby. Babies are soothed by calm lullabies. After the birth of a baby, a mother will communicate with her baby using the musical tones in her voice. This is known as ‘ motherease’. This way of communicating strengthens the child’s emotional well-being as well as being a core catalyst to bonding. It is also the beginning of the road towards language development.

2. Singing- Is such a natural activity, but can be daunting for some people. The thing is your baby or child don’t expect you to be able to sing like Adele or Ed Shearan, they just want to hear their parents voice. Singing is great for language acquisition and the development of vocabulary, from babies to pre-schoolers the benefits of singing are far reaching.
3. Motor Control- Did you know each time your child picks up an instrument (even a home-made plastic bottle with rice in it) and plays it they are using their gross and fine motor skills. When children participate practise shaking a maraca or laying the triangle, they are practising grips and postures that can be generalised into other areas of learning. For example a child grips an instruments handle in the same way he would hold his/her toothbrush. Skills learned in a music session are transferable to other areas of life!

4. Social Skills- We all want our children to be bright and sociable beings don’t we? Well music can be an individual activity, but really it is at its best when people play together. This makes it a fantastic way to provide your child with a sociable experience. Children learn how to work as a team to achieve outcomes. They learn specific skills such as sharing and turn taking. Important skills such as listening are naturally covered through music. These are all things your child will need to form and maintain relationships in the future!

5. Physiological- The physiological benefits of singing are well documented. Singing makes our bodies take in more oxygen when we breath, thus more oxygen is circulating to your vital organs. Children can’t help but wiggle, jiggle and dance in music sessions giving them an opportunity to get some physical exercise while having fun!

6 . Learning- Many concepts can be learned through song, for example body awareness. Think of the song “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” which teaches body parts, or “Five Little Ducks” that teaches counting. There is a whole world of things that can be taught through song and musical play. In Musica sessions we even encourage children to learn about music. Specific styles of music are explored, as are instruments, and musical elements such as fast and slow, high or low.

7. Creative outlet- Children are naturally creative and imaginative. Through music they have the opportunity to use these natural gifts by making up songs, choosing instruments, playing and improvising. What about creative dance and movement, and drawing to music…. There are so many creative elements, a child has every motivation to express themselves!
8. Non-verbal – Music is a non verbal medium, which makes it great for pre-speech and children on the amazing road of language acquisition. Children have the chance to express themselves and be heard through their playing or their singing! Being- non verbal also means it is amazingly effective for children that are non verbal for medical reasons.
9. Fun – Music is fun! Music provides a stimulating and motivational environment for you child to learn! Our wee ones are naturally musical and seem to naturally posses a joy for music and the fun it provides.

10. Culture- Music is part of our culture. Through exploring a persons musical taste we can go some way to getting to know that person and their likes and dislikes. Music can represent identity reflecting a persons culture and singing local music to your child can be a way of them knowing more about the area they are living in and the identity of your family. For example singing the old folk songs of your area may connect you deeper to the place you live and the historical events that have happened there

So, as you can see there are plenty of important reasons children should be encouraged to participate and experience music. Musica provides evidence-based creative programmes for children that are built around the reasons music is so good for children. To find out more contact our team!

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and
    entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I came across this in my hunt for
    something regarding this.
