Musical development is a very informal category of child development. So informal, in fact, that I can probably claim that I made it up! But in all seriousness, music is a fun part of a child’s life! Each week we will look at how to incorporate music, rhythm, dance, anything with a beat into your day. The point is to get moving and don’t stop (until they crash at nap time!)
Here are some things to know about children and music:
- Rhythm helps children understand the structure of words and sentences in language.
- Moving to a beat helps children develop coordination and balance.
- It’s a great way to explore abstract concepts like feelings.
- When words are set to music, they are easier to remember (Think of the ABC song)
