A saying goes that ‘who sings his evils scares’. And I would say that those who only listen to music also dress in a good mood in the face of adversity. Who does not like music? The sounds of music reassure little ones, invite them to move their bodies and, according to one study, children who study music develop, at the same time, skills for mathematics.
How to Incorporate Music into Your Child’s Life?
A child who receives School of Music, both in school and out of school, and even who has seen concerts in his childhood, presents an improvement in his performance in mathematics, while raising his interest in reading . The researchers compared the relationships between the boys who had music classes and their qualifications in linguistic and mathematical subjects, and found that those who studied music achieved a better academic performance.
If you notice that your child likes music and wants to stimulate it, it does not mean that you have to enroll it in the first Music School you find. Help him develop this natural ability so that his passion for music is as constant as possible. Here are some tips:
- Sing your baby. Sing while you bathe, while you play with him, or when you take him to the crib, or for a walk. Sing to him at all hours that you can.
- Put music while the baby is in your car seat waiting for the porridge or you just pick up the house. There is a wide variety of music CDs for children. Choose the quieter ones for the end of the day, and the rocking and loud songs for the middle of the day.
- Make Your Baby Listen to Different Rhythms: classical music, salsa, samba, rock, etc. Later it will be he who will decide what music he prefers.
- Play With Your Child With Musical Instruments: A piano on a pile, a flute, a tambourine or a xylophone.
- Play to create sounds with disposable objects. With bottles full of rice, with yogurt containers full of beans, etc.
- Take it, whenever you can, to a concert or a musical show, or a theater presentation.
