Why does music play such an important role in a childs development? Many studies show that there is a correlation between higher academic achievement with children who are exposed to music. Music has been shown to stimulate parts of the brain relating to reading, mathematics and emotional development.
Research has shown that participation in musical activities at an early age can help to improve a childs learning ability and memory by stimulating different patterns of brain development.
Music can help children to focus and control their bodies and is especially good in the development and improvement of hand/eye co-ordination.
Music can really improve confidence and self esteem. Children who are involved in musical groups learn important life skills, such as how to relate to others, how to work as a team and appreciate the rewards that come from working together, and the development of leadership skills and discipline.
Creating music is a fun way for children to show their individuality and really express themselves.
At mini musicians we like to dance to music which can help with co-ordination, balance and rhythm and is also a good form of exercise.
Music performance teaches young people to conquer fear and to take risks. A little anxiety is a good thing, and something that will occur often in life. Dealing with it early and often makes it less of a problem later. Risk-taking is essential if a child is to fully develop his or her potential.
At mini musicians we aim to develop cultural understanding. Children are introduced to a variety of music from different cultures and genres. This exposure allows children to learn about and appreciate the differences and individuality of different cultures.
Regular music classes will help children to develop a passion and life long love of music and the performing arts.
