Musical Education Benefits for Kids is a sponsored post for Guitar Center. All opinions are my own.
Music education is extremely important to the development of children. We recently did a tour of the Guitar Center in Delray Beach. It’s beautiful and my daughter fell in love with the piano. She’s been dying to get guitar lessons, but when we got in there she gravitated toward the piano. We are signing her up for piano lessons at the Guitar Center. After learning about all the benefits of musical education, I feel like it is a must for raising well rounded smart kids.
Musical Education Benefits
Develop Language Skills
Learning music as a child helps you develop language easier. Reading, understanding and speaking a language requires the ability to identify where syllables and words begin and end. Phonological awareness uses the same area of the brain used to identify and break up sounds. Studies have shown that musically-trained children have better phonological awareness. This helps kids learn words faster, develop a richer vocabulary, and learn to read sooner.
According to a recent study, children taking music lessons showed dramatic improvement in their verbal intelligence scores after only four weeks of training. Improvements in speech and reading are critical to success in school, where strong literacy is a pre-requisite for nearly every subject area, including mathematics.
My daughter has been obsessed with music since she was very little. She started with Musikgarten when she was a baby. Almost all day, every day, she is singing something that she made up on her own. She loves the music from Moana and Coco so much too.
Children who have a musical education are better at memorizing. Most education is based on a strong ability to memorize things. If you can memorize, you can take that information and develop original thought and arguments based on your memorized knowledge. Learning, in general, becomes easier when you can memorize more easily. Through a greater ability to memorize, test scores are improved.
General IQ, mathematics and vocabulary are all based on being able to memorize. My husband played music all his life, even in college, and he is a walking dictionary. His memory blows me away with the facts that he has in his head.
Musical education helps build character and shows kids that they can achieve goals with hard work. I feel like that lesson is undeniable and something that ever kids needs. The goal
Learning music can help with social awareness and help your child be more attuned to subtle changes in speech. Being able to focus on the tune is said to help kids be more empathetic and help kids be more likely to help people in need.
My husband played saxophone all through high school and college. He told me that he made amazing friendships through playing music.
