Music Supports Healthy Child Development and Improves Musical Aptitude

Local ways to incorporate music classes education into your child's life, laying the foundation for musical skills and ability.

Looking for music classes for your child? Very wise of you and good for them! Music can aide their development in ways that would require a team of therapists to do the same job. It is also fun, inspiring and an outlet of expression that all children need.

Music in early childhood plays a most vital role in children’s development and future musical aptitude.  Today’s parents are seeking out music classes and opportunities to give their child that step-up it provides.  While any time is a good time to introduce music, the most critical time for laying the foundations for musical skills and ability are, in fact, the early years of childhood.

Expanding your child’s musical experiences can begin in the womb, while the ages of three to six years are critical.  Children’s brain function and growth is rapidly developing and absorbing musical information such as rhythm, pitch and harmony.  Want your child to develop perfect pitch?  Formal music classes introduce them to the foundations that will make those cognitive connections!

Most impressively, music supports the rapid growth of the brain through the toddlerhood and the preschool years as music education is a multi-sensory experience. 

Nervous System Regulation 
Music regulates breathing patterns and calms their nervous systems.  Music has also been found to improve mood, performance and productivity!

Social-Emotional Development
Making music while attending classes provides children and their caregivers with a social activity they can participate in together while interacting and collaborating with other children.

Building Motor Skills
Hones both fine and gross motor skills, coordination and building the cross-connections that the brain required for the more demanding interactions of young children as they continue to grow into adolescence and adulthood.

Language and Communication  
Music enhances language skills and helps children decipher the emotional context of language!  When the ear is exposed to pitches and learns to differentiate between them, this skill carries over into speech discrimination, assisting in language processing, articulation and phonological awareness.

Think of all the senses utilized while learning, reading, listening to and making music!  How old is your child today?  What function does music play in their life?  The following are some local ways to incorporate music classes and education into your child’s life.
