Music affects us all in some way, we can say we are “tone deaf”, but music will still affect our minds, body & spirits. Music has the ability to influence our kid’s behaviour, either good or bad. Music can tape into our children’s social skills; it has a positive effect on us all in some way, which is why it is not only a great kid’s activity but also a life long adventure.
Many studies have determined that our kids will benefit from participating in musical education. There is evidence that suggest kids who are involved in music develop fine motor skills and develop listening skills, subsequently when a child develops the ability to listen, many other areas of their life will develop and grow, including academic work.
Music can be a great way and for some of us the only way to express emotions. This can be especially beneficial during the turbulent adolescence years.
Music develops self-esteem, and can provide a sense of satisfaction and achievement once a piece is mastered. Playing an instrument or singing can be a solitary pursuit or a group activity, which helps develop social interaction and team building skills. All of which are important skills for life.
Music is flexible and the enjoyment we receive from listening or playing music is ours and ours only - no one can take it away from us.
Kids get involved in Music - it may become your passion and career.
Have Fun Kids.
