Music Aids The Mind

DD Daddy February 13, 2017 Posts No Comments on Music Aids The Mind

From birth, parents instinctively use music to calm and soothe children, to express their love and joy, and to engage and interact. For toddlers and preschoolers, music making can be a dynamic social learning experience. Benefits of music for children include learning cooperation, sharing, compromise, creativity, and concentration – skills that become invaluable as they enter school, face new challenges, and begin to form new friendships and develop social skills.

A few weeks ago, a friend of ours who teaches music to pipsqueaks at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami (Go Canes!), invited us to attend one of the classes. Both G&O were engaged the entire time and loved it so we decided to sign them up for the semester. These ‘Little Canes’, as they are affectionately called, acquire harmonic and rhythmic abilities through song and movement. The objectives include familiarizing students with all instrument families, and preparing them to read music. We saw a few children, no older than G&O, playing the violin and piano and almost lost our minds with how AWESOME it was!

 

The Frost School of Music Preparatory Program’s sole focus is to develop your child’s individual interests and abilities in music, ranging from music appreciation to preparation for music conservatories. They do a heck of a job of entertaining both child and parent alike and I feel great knowing I’m helping stimulate brain development for G&O at an early age.
