Preschool Music and Movement
Music stimulates the right part of the brain, which is how creativity and feelings develop. Kids who have more contact with music develop different skills.
These kids are also proven to be more creative, have a greater facility for expressing feelings. They will develop memory and even stimulate gross motor skills since they express their feelings through dance.
The great benefits of developing in a musical environment are incredible. Kids who have had contact with music since birth have better hearing. In fact, their hearing can differentiate between tones and sounds, allowing them to acquire a language easier.
Do not hesitate to stimulate your children. They can start by listening to children’s songs with easy and repetitive lyrics. The youngest children enjoy classical music.
Do not limit the auditory stimulation in your children. Remember that they develop, educate, and strengthen hearing. They also enhance and encourage the development of several skills.
