5 Ways Music Classes Aid Child Development

Music and singing classes – a top to toe aid for child development

Participating in a pre-school music and singing class encourages many important developmental skills for your child suggests Kelly Haigh, Music Bugs Eastbourne and Brighton. ‘Music and singing classes are much more than just a ‘musical experience’ as your child will learn and develop a range of important skills that will help to equip them for school and beyond’.

These are the top 5 benefits Kelly see's children at Music Bugs make every day!

  • Language and communication skills – singing songs is a fantastic way to boost early language skills and encourages important elements of language development such as auditory discrimination (the ability to detect similarities and differences when listening to sounds).

  • Numeracy skillsnumber songs introduce children to the concept of counting. Singing counting songs with your child helps them to recognise numbers, patterns and sequences within their immediate environment.
  • Fine and gross motor control and coordination – young children use movement and sensory exploration to link up with their immediate environment and toddlersare biologically driven to use their bodies to develop their physical skills.
  • Sensory experiences – Children utilise 4 main ‘processes’ to engage and interact with their environment: Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic and Tactile. Music classes provide children with the opportunity to be constantly seeing, hearing, touching and ‘doing’ – an all-round sensory experience for your child.
  • Confidence, social skills and independenceMusic and singing classes help children to start making decisions for themselves within a safe and informal environment. Encourage your child to select their own instrument from the tub for example, but allow them to develop their own preferences and give them the freedom to move around, explore and interact with other children and parents.
