Music is an universal language that makes the world go round 🌎🎶
It connects all humans and fosters happiness. No wonder why children naturally love it — It’s healing and powerful! 🌟
When children are around music is very beneficial to not only their spirit, but also, it has been proven that it enhances all their abilities, such a gross motor and cognitive skills.
Alex Henze from Penfieldbuildingblocks.org explained the effects music has on children:
“In modern times, scholars and doctors have researched the mysterious power of music. Some of this research has yielded truly incredible insights. Doctors have found that babies express preference for the same kind of music they heard while in the womb. Many studies have shown that exposing infants and babies in the womb to music helps build neural bridges used to process thought and information. Music can stimulate the brain’s alpha waves, which creates a sense of calmness in the listener. Other studies indicate that early music exposure and instruction have benefits on the development of perceptual skills, which affects language and literary abilities; spatial reasoning, which is related to skills used to do math; and fine motor coordination.”
When we expose children to music is also important to engage, and not expect that children will learn on their own from their experience. Sure, singing and dancing solo is fun, too! — But when we interact, dance and sing along, we help further their learning experience and create a positive bond between child and caretaker/parent that can last a lifetime! 🎶💗🎶
With all this being said, here’s 3 bands we love and hope you do, too!
