Studies have found that musically a rich environment is beneficial for the language development of children. Researchers have also found that music helps in the development of a part of left side of the brain which processes languages.
Music results in better IQ. Some studies were conducted on a group of 6 year old children in Toronto and results revealed that taking music lessons for one long year resulted in the improved IQ of children. Children who took drama classes were noted to have better social behavior.
Music nurtures active and hard working brain. Children involved in music training have better focus and they use more of their brain. A neuroscience research has shown that children who received music training have better growth of neural activity compared to non music groups.
Here’s why your child should learn to play an instrument:
Improves Social Skills
If you notice your child doesn’t get along well with others, enroll them in drumming sessions or piano classes or for any musical instrument of his/her choice. Playing instruments and understanding music improves the sense of harmony in kids and they cultivate good mannerisms and etiquette and grow well-behaved.
Boosts Confidence Level
Many kids have confidence issues which can be dealt through learning how to play an instrument. When kids learn to play instruments, they are instilled with a sense of achievement and they start trusting themselves for their skills.
In today’s world of chaos where everyone is in hurry, patience is really a virtue. And it can be developed by playing musical instruments. When you are playing a musical instrument in a group, you know the timing is very important for the right music to be produced.
It’s Plain Fun!
Playing instrument is really an interesting activity and kids just love it.
Encourage your child to learn playing a musical instrument and help them build self-confidence resulting in their all-round development.
