Why is music so essential and important to young children and how can it benefit them?
- Children love music. By using music which they already enjoy it provides the structure for learning so many skills used daily such as increased attention span, social development, reinforce academic learning, behavioral skills and develop music appreciation and skills.
- The structure in music will allow those with speech difficulties successful experiences through singing, which will provide the confidence and skills to transfer to speech.
- Music provides children an opportunity to safely express themselves verbally and non verbally.
- Music positively changes mood and emotional states while increasing self-esteem and self-image.
“Music supports self-expression, cooperative play, creativity, emotional well being, and development of social, cognitive, communication, and motor skills.” –Early Years Are Leaning Years from the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
