Learning to play an instrument doesn’t just improve your musical skills, but also as an impact on your speech abilities as well. A study published in the Journal of Neuroscience found that musical training helps kid’s process language better than children with no musical training. The precision required by the brain to has to be trained by a stimulated nervous system. Learning music allows the brain to become better at pitch, timing, and timbre. Consonants and vowels are more easily understood and distinguished by children and they can make sense of them faster than children without musical training.
Music’s ability to affect a child’s capacity is very helpful when they are developing their first language and can also make a big difference when it comes to learning a second. Music has been proven to connect with education and enhance concentration.
Research has also found that actively engaging with music increases brain functions such as reasoning and conceptualization. Music is a right brain activity, while math is a left brain. Our Music FunTime program combines the two by learning notes, rhythms, and counts which creates a way to combine both sides of the brain and holistically engage in many ways of thinking. This type of research is derived from Johns Hopkins that attributes this combination to engage social, emotional, creative, language, and the physical development of the brain.
Children learn quickly when properly stimulated and develop skills that create confidence, better communication and attention. Our Music FunTime program is the best choice for young children interested in music! This program is not an organized play group with instruments. It is truly a way for your child to learn and develop as a person, intellectual, and become proficient in any instrument.
