Role of music in child development
Music and singing play an important role in our life. We can find music in many aspects of our lives, that’s why it is important to realize the role music plays in child development.
From birth, parents instinctively use music to calm and soothe children, to express their love and joy, and to engage and interact. Parents can build on these natural instincts by learning how music can influence child development, improve social skills, and benefit kids of all ages.
The key benefit of music is that it covers all areas of child development: intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. 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. It is a well-known fact that music helps strengthen memory skills for children as well as adults. For children music also develops cooperation, sharing, compromise, creativity, and concentration - skills that become invaluable as they enter school, face new challenges, and begin to form new friendships and develop social skills.
Children of all ages express themselves through music. Playing music for infants proves that, even at an early age, children sway, bounce, or move their hands in response to music they hear. They recognize the melody of a song long before they understand the words, and often try to mimic sounds and start moving to the music as soon as they are physically able.
