Children today are faced with many pressures and expectations. It is often difficult to tell which theories or methods can be of the most use for your child. Worry no more, we have a solution! Music training is the only proven method to boost the full intellectual, linguistic and emotional capacity of a child. The best part is that only one hour of learning music a week is required to receive these great learning benefits!
Music training from an early age actually helps with fluency of learning a foreign language. The utility of learning music actually aids the part of the brain that is used when learning languages. Music training started before age seven helps kids recognize the subtle differences between sounds and pronunciation. Anybody who has learned a foreign language can tell you just how important of a component this is. Even into adulthood, those who have had musical training as a child retain the ability to more easily learn a new language. In the evolution of people, language was derived from music which has origins 300,000 years before language. This is the reason why the musical and linguistic parts of our brain are so interconnected.
Research has shown that children under the age of nine who spent one hour a week actively learning music had a much higher ability to learn grammar and pronunciation when it came to foreign languages. Children who participated in other extracurricular activities such as sports did not show any greater ability towards learning languages. When making decisions about what activities to put your child into music lessons should be at the top of the list. Making music is a lifelong skill that they can enjoy for years and it will benefit their mind in numerous ways.
