It's never too early to introduce your children to the art of making music! Musical instruments can be used to teach kids hand eye coordination, patterns in the rhythms, and enhanced fine motor skills. Exploring music can also inspire kids to be more creative and to have an increased sense of self expression.
Encourage your kids to create songs to go along with the rhythms and patterns they create. Music can engage a child’s senses, they can hear the melody and feel the beat. Music can be used to teach too! Exercise your child’s memory by creating a series of sounds and have them repeat it.
Music can also be a great tool for relaxation, or calming for over stimulated kids. The beats don’t always have to be loud and fast paced. Create slow and steady sounds to bring down the tone of a busy day and help kids settle into peace and quiet.
