Benifits of Music

Music Matters

Psychologists, neuroscientists, and experts in early childhood development have demonstrated that music does more for children than bring them joy; it helps their brain cells make the connections needed for virtually every kind of intelligence. The following research is the bedrock of Kindermusik’s curriculum.

When young children are consistently engaged by music in an age-appropriate, socially accepting environment, they benefit at many levels:

Reading: They gain the phonological processing, spoken language, and comprehension skills that are the foundation of reading.

Quantitative: They build the spatial-temporal and reasoning skills required for math, science, and engineering.

Social: They develop social and emotional skills that are essential for school readiness—like the ability to regulate their responses and relate to others in complex ways.

Physical: By moving and dancing to music and playing simple instruments, children improve their gross and fine motor skills.

Creative: Activities that encourage freedom within a fun and friendly structure spark their creativity.
