“Music is the art of thinking with sounds” -Jules Combarleu
Aside from hugs, kisses and I love yous.. music and Lullaby songs are our first way of communicating to our child.
Those soft songs.. will turn to happy beat.. to dancing beat with marching feet.
Being married to a musically-inclined person,no wonder my son, Zee, was born a music lover too. As early as 6-month old he is already into dancing and loves playing the drums.
Sharing with you the benefits of music for toddlers and preschoolers:
1. Brain Development – music helps the body and mind work together as a team, no wonder it benefits our child’s brain development. It improves a child’s motor skills by moving and their memory by remembering the sound of the song and its lyrics.
From Sheknows.com : Children’s music specialist Meredith LeVande of MonkeyMonkeyMusic.com.“Music simply stimulates parts of the brain that are related to reading, math, and emotional development.”
