Music and Kids

Ever Thought of Music for kid’s development?

Music for kids

Did you ever glanced as to why kids in different life stages show their love for Music differently? Scratched minds that these bangs & noises could be a form of Music for them? Did you thought what could be the benefit of listening & playing the music/musical instruments?

or

We often get irritated as babies bang the drums with their full energy. We do feel tortured at times when kids sing to the top of their voices with harsh background instrumental music.

But then, should we feel that way? Don’t you feel the joy of listening to some lovely music in car with windows pulled down? Don’t you feel like listening good music or even instrumental music triggers a sense of calmness & creates a positive aura? Doesn’t rejoicing the music with family enlighten your happiness quotient?

Did you ever notice that your singing or Rhyming made your kid smile, help them swayed & clap hands & sing along with you? Indeed unaware of, you helped your kid develop cognitive, social, language skills:)

Revelation :

So, you would have definitely answered my questions above for yourself & that’s the very reason why kids also enjoy Music . Children, contrary to your thought, enjoy it from the time they are in mothers womb. Its been ages that people say to moms , Listen some good music (that’s not just for mommy’s mood elevation) . But foetus inside does react to instrumental / raga/rhythmic beats if played regularly , so their connection with music is for sure beyond your imagination.

Did you ever thought, why 70-80% toys for kids are musical in some way or the other?

With those Rattle toys, musical Gym, Drums & Piano later, you’ve only helped them bond this connection more. Music is a sensory experience & helping kids learn it paves a great development path for them.

Let’s help them nurture this “passion” & develop in a fun way.

Sharing some facts to know the importance of Music in kids lives :

1. Boosting Neurons & Memory:

Mom’s getting tensed! Feeding the kid with more of “badaam’s” ,Lol ! Many people do so; Reason: To develop sharp brain and keep the granny’s advice intact (Smile everyone). So, why not tap on Music also? Since Music stimulates those brain areas & neurons which are concerned with Reading , Learning, Maths & emotional developments and this results in sharpening the memory. Time to get them practised , Mark it and notice for your self:)

 2. Social & Confident Child:

I’ve seen many of the parents (including ME) when our kids go “Introvert”& have “Mute”button pressed during those Societal hangouts;). Going musical helps them learn life skills of rejoicing with groups; it makes them aware of “team work”& helps developing“Group appreciation”. And, that’s what we wish to kickoff in their foundation years, Socialising, a big task made little simpler!

3. Patience :

Terrified of the “Aggression” borne by kids these days? Actually , sometimes it gets damn painful . Well, this is one activity which can help them gain patience , have them feel peace of life & let the strings connect to get the ultimate joy out of it. Let them have a better Emotional connect.

4. Inculcates Discipline & Ignites Creativity:

Discipline –That’s mom’s favourite complaint & kids most hated words so why not help them achieve it? Exposing kids to music & musical instruments can actually help you believe that “Practice Practice and Practice, until you succeed”, gets embedded in their lives. Its a discovery of Self-learning & exploration for them. No turning back from this creative pursuit, it definitely is gonna develop them the way we wish to see.

 Let them explore the world somewhat in their way, develop skills by experiment & love life in a Fun way!

  1. Really interesting post!! I honestly thought most babies were tone deaf I couldn’t understand how the banging would make any sense to them. Now I know better. Thanks for sharing

    1. Thanks Esther!!

  2. We play guitar to our son and sing. He loves it! Always saying “guitar!” and “again!” We will definitely be teaching him when he gets a little older

  3. Great post .Music is very powerful tool to develop a young brain.Glad you shared this .

    I think music is important. I’ve always listened to it around my kids. I never played annoying kid music, but always my own, and they love it now.

  8. I’m not a Mum but I know how important music and sound is to development of little ones. from Pregnancy through childhood, music is important.

  9. Very insightful post Jhilmil! I never thought that music can help kids in so many different ways. Whenever I used to hear my nephew singing at the top of his lung to any Justin Beiber’s number, it was very difficult for me not to loose my sanity!

  10. Yes, music is so important. Also for children. I definitely love how music boosts the creativity. Music is also great for memory indeed. Also memorizing all the lines. And good for learning a language!

  11. Great post! My daughters love their instruments. They both play the flute and my husband loves his guitar!

  12. Completely agree with your point music is the most important part

  13. I love this post for so many reasons. I was a very musical child and I still am as an adult. When most boys around me were playing baseball or football, I was singing in my school’s chorus. I found that music helped me to study other topics. Once I got into middle school I found that mathematics became boring and I just couldn’t grasp it. Then I found a teacher who explained it like the music I’d read and write and it clicked. I’m a huge supporter of music programs and education for children for all the reasons you’ve mentioned.

    1. Great to know about your passion for Music! Keep the spirits up:)

  14. My parents made sure I take singing lesson when I was a kid. I’m so glad they did! I think it’s important for all kids to learn some type of music.

  15. Music is great for child development and we always have music playing at home. My toddler loves classical music.

  16. Looks like there is more to music than what meets the ear.

  17. Wow I didn’t know music had so many benefits too. I always thought of it as a soothing experience

    I’ve always been musical myself and realized early on how important it was. I raised my kids to love music and play different instrument. It seems to soothe them.

  22. I think music is so important for children’s development too! I used to play the violin, the piano and sing in a choir / theatre group and I absolutely loved it. Thanks for raising awareness of the benefits to little ones 🙂

  23. Both my kids reacted to music right from the time they were in my womb. They sing and dance even now. Music plays a crucial role in overall development of a child.

  24. Music for kids is very important. It boost their mind & give a happy vibes. I always love your posts must say.

  25. Always knew that music has something to do with babies. It was a rumor and now it turns out, it is true. No wonder why my mother said that I always plead for piano

  26. Vasundhra says:

    No wonder expecting moms are advised to listen to music. I am sure it has a role to play in a child’s development!

  27. Thanks for such insights. They re enforce my thoughts on getting kids involved with music

  28. Papri Ganguly says:

    Totally agree with your point. Music has significant benefits I our life.

  29. worldofmakeupmagique says:

    I never knew music had such a deep effect on child’s development… I think every parent must incorporate

  30. It’s very interesting article. Babies and kids Are mostly very receiving to music. Thanks for such an informative article.

  31. Music plays a very important role in all of ours life and very important for children as well.

  32. All points were good but the last one was the best. As I myself went to learn Guitar and had to practice a lot. There I learnt that there are no shortcuts to success. Practice is a must and lot of patience too. Great blog. Loved it

  33. You speak my mind here, I am of the opinion that an art form training to kids in early age brings the creativity in best form plus help them understand how to utilize extra energy.
    Love the conviction of positive changes you have written this post on.

  34. I never knew about so many important points about introducing music to kids.. Great post

  35. You are right music is so important! Even when I was pregnant I would listen to music and I noticed that it calmed down my son when he was kicking to much. My son likes to play on music instruments when he sees them. By the way I couldn’t agree more with “Let them explore the world somewhat in their way, develop skills by experiment & love life in a Fun way!”

  36. I think music is a great way for development because when I was young, I learned piano which was a total game changer. Even listening to music daily or singing along helps you grow and learn!

  37. Well done! I could not agree with this post more. I have played guitar for over 30 years and still love it now! I am teaching my kids guitar and keyboard. My eldest is getting into rum too! It definitely improves the way your memory works. I never even had to try to memorise all the notes to a song, I just did it! My avatar links to a George Michael cover we did earlier this year.

  38. My kids absolutely love music. I’ve got one who loves to sing and dance, and one who loves singing, dancing AND he wants to learn an instrument. I think everyone can relate to music, so it’s important to nurture a childs love of it from early on.

  39. Hi there! Thank you for this great article. We actually just experienced that with the 2-year-old daughter of a friend of ours. Her mother always sang songs to her when she was a baby and now she basically knows every children’s tune by heart. Stunning!

  40. I know music is important for childhood development. And I remember making sure that my daughter would listen to classical music every night when she was a child. I cannot be sure how much it has helped but she definitely does well.

  41. Another point about children and music is that it helps to improve math skills especially if they learn how to read music and compose short little melodies.

  42. Thanks you for sharing the blog

  43. Thank you for sharing the article.Helpful
