Why learning music is good for your child
If you thought that just maths and science are essential for the development of ideas and techniques in a child then think again! Music is equally important in developing academic, social and emotional capabilities in children.
Whether a child plays music just for fun or whether he wants to take it to a professional level, music is highly important for laying down a strong foundation of language development, mental abilities or general life lessons in a child, and this is why it’s good to introduce music learning early in their life. In today’s time when children are distracted by the world of digital media, music can bring a sense of discipline and calmness into their lives.
Music has many benefits and it helps in the constructive development of the personality of a person. Parents therefore should provide opportunities of learning music to their children along with their school education.
This can be easily done by facilitating home tuitions for music if the child is overburdened with school work and finds it difficult to go for music classes.
Development of reasoning skills
Music helps in development of the left side of the brain which is associated with language development and mental abilities. Hence, if a child starts learning music at an early age you will see him develop above average reasoning skills. This will help him perform better in studies too.
Increases memory power
When a child plays music looking at a music sheet or learns a song then he is using his memory to do so and is deriving pleasure out of this activity. Hence, it goes without saying that music helps increasing memory power in students which further helps them do well in academics.
Playing a musical instrument certainly helps students with better hand-eye co-ordination. Just like playing sports helps a student in developing motor skills similarly music does the same job and leads to all round development of children.
Keeps children gainfully engaged
Music is so much fun to learn that it keeps children gainfully engaged. It makes them bright, active and they are likely to engage more in social conversations as compared to children who do not learn music.
Enhances imagination and curiosity
Introduction of music in the life of children from an early age results in an increase in their curiosity to know and to learn about different things. It not only brings in them a positive attitude towards life but also increases their imagination power and thus helps them to look at life in a whole different way.
It helps children relax
Music apart from helping children favourably in academics helps them relax and unwind. It helps them to forget everything and loose themselves completely in the soothing and relaxing world of music.
It teaches discipline
Mastering the art of playing a musical instrument instils patience and discipline in children. Practicing music again and again to get the perfect note helps children to become disciplined, patient and hard-working not only in the field of music but in all the different areas of life.
Helps in creative thinking
Music learning helps a child to see a particular situation from different angles. It helps him to think more creatively and moreover think outside the box. Children who begin to learn music from an early age are able to think more creatively as compared to children who have never had the opportunity to attend music classes.
Builds up self-confidence
When a child learns music and is able to perform or play instruments it builds up his confidence. This self-confidence acts as a booster in taking the child to new levels of success.
Music learning encapsulates a world of growth and advantages in itself and is extremely necessary for the all round development of children. HIGH is a unique program that brings music learning right at the doorstep and hence helps children pursue their passion for music even amidst their hectic school schedule.
