The benefits and effects of learning
the art of music are immensely great and long-lasting.
Here are a few reason why and how...
Music improves all academic skills by activating and exercising both parts of the brain. Music and math are highly intertwined. By understanding beat, rhythm, and scales, children are learning how to divide, create fractions, and recognize patterns. As kids get older, they'll start reciting songs, calling on their short-term memory and eventually their long-term memory.
By playing instruments such as percussion, it helps children develop coordination and motor skills; they require movement of the hands, arms, and feet. Enhancing coordination and perfecting timing can help prepare children for other hobbies, like dance and sports.
In a world dominated by social media, phones and computers, weekly music classes or lessons offer kids an escape to play, explore and socialize with new faces. Kids learn valuable lessons such as coordinating as a group by playing, relieving anxiety by singing together and expressing empathy by listening to various styles of music. All of these activities and more help to develop a child's well being and makes them into the young adults they will soon become.
