Title : Imporatnce of Music in Kids Life Previous topic PreviousNext Next topic

Music is the powerful thing for the development of kids. Children love music as much as they enjoy making things. Music is fun and leads to a positive, relaxed and happy atmosphere. It allows for children to creatively express themselves. Kids seem to experience much pleasure, happy and joy by creating music, listening music, and moving to music. How great it is that with very small effort, a teacher can give such happiness to kids each day by just providing an opportunity to do just a little something with music. Music plays an important role in kid’s happiness. A research by Lucy Dillon says music making can contribute to the development of a wide range of social and personal development outcomes for looked after children. The positive outcomes was identified in relation to Perceptual and language skills, Literacy and numeracy, Intellectual development, General attainment, Creativity, Social and personal development, Physical development, Health and well-being, etc. Another research shows that music has a positive influence on young children’s cognitive skills such as spatial reasoning and memory. It also shows that providing children with a rich and stimulating environment involving all the senses, including the auditory sense, can support children’s healthy growth and development.
Music in itself is a form of self expression and creativity which imparts complex thinking abilities in children, which in turn, improves their cognitive abilities. With music it is easier to think about abstract things as it improves the imagination when one tries to invent or create his own tune or learning the old ones. So music is also a great way to express oneself which can help in reducing the emotional and psychological stress. In fact there are so many psychologists who use 'music therapy' to treat patients with mental disorders. Hence, music is plausibly the only tool that can provide your brain and mind with exercise as well relaxation. Apart from this, music can serve as one of the ways to boost a child's self esteem, especially, someone who is poor in academic subjects. Imagine playing violin or singing a solo song at an annual function of the school can do wonders for your kid's self esteem. Therefore, music is certainly healing and is very important for the personal, emotional, mental, and psychological growth of children. Children get an opportunity to know about the history of music, artists, different instruments, different types of music and elements of music, and how to make new instruments, how to repair instruments, and much more. This certainly adds to their knowledge and takes them closer to the lives of artistic people which can provide them valuable insights on life.
Music develops children’s sense of patterning and memory skills. When learning a musical instrument, a song, or a dance, the child experiences the unique integration of mind and body. Experts agree that music can strengthen children’s minds and serve as a fundamental skill of learning. Music can help a child’s creativity and their capacity to learn more. It also helps them get ready for understanding new concepts, like math. Music and songs help kids transition from one activity to another. Not only can music be used to manage behavior, but it can also be used to give kids an outlet for conflict or frustration or sadness. Music is an art form. We are emotional beings and every child requires an artistic outlet. Music may be your child’s vehicle of expression. Music calms them, gets them excited, makes them sing, and gets them to make decisions while increasing their cognitive ability. Music making provides a positive outlet for young people to express negative feelings such as anger. Parents should provide some music knowledge for kids from the beginning itself. We can also provide some music software for kids such as FlexiMusic Kids Composer to enrich their music creativity.
Music enhances one's logical intelligence, mathematical intelligence, linguistic intelligence, spatial intelligence, along with intra personal and interpersonal communication.
