Music classes offer an array of benefits to a child. Not only are they fun and engaging but they also help to develop a child’s physical, social and intellectual skills.
Depending on the age and interests of your child, there are a number of different options available when it comes to them engaging in a musical activity. For toddlers and pre-school age children parents can choose between an array of introductory classes, many of which offer a blend of both music and dance. These lessons aim to help children explore the power of rhythm, melody, tonality and beat.
The benefits for children learning an instrument are immense. Studies have shown that music and maths are highly intertwined and that as a child begins to understand beat, scales and rhythm they are learning how to divide, create fractions and recognise patterns. Learning to read music is also like learning to read another language and has been linked to raising a child’s IQ. It can also improve a child’s coordination and teach them patience.
Choosing the right instrument is also important. Is your child excited about it? Does it match their temperament? Are they interested in that music style? Some music schools offer a chance to trial different instruments to help find the right fit.
