All children love music & singing. The Telegraph published an interesting article featuring a study that confirmed that babies learn their first lullabies in the womb and can remember them up to four months after birth. It can never be too early to introduce music to a bed-time routine!

For toddlers music is very helpful when developing language skills for example by repeating rhymes. Research by the Youth Music Organisation has proven that music can support various development goals including communication, maths, listening, concentration and social skills and makes children overall more confident.

The benefits of music were also highlighted in a study entitled “The Mozart Effect” by Don Campbell: “The most important benefit is the proven positive effects music has on brain development….and is most crucial during the first 6 years, when the most important brain development takes place.” Music classes are very popular with parents and children alike. Singing, clapping and using small instruments like drums, castanets and maraccas is great fun and also help motor skills and physical coordination. So whether you turn up the music at home, sing lullabies or join a class – just have fun with it and you can be sure your child will love it!
