Imagine the world without music. There is neither the melodious sound of the instruments nor the pleasant sound of singing voices. Taking out music in life’s equation can mean life has lost its flavor. Music plays a very important role in our life. It helps us to express and most of all it gives us meaning. We hear music everywhere and sometimes we move with the music. It is part of our daily life. It comes in different forms and certainly we do love to hear it. But music goes beyond hearing. Multiple researches have shown that it can produce lots of benefits. And so learning music is interesting. Moreso, it is beneficial.
Learning music is a discovery of another interest. Interest that turns to hobby can be a passion that sets children to achieve their full potential. Thus, learning music opens a new road that leads them to personal enrichment and eventually become masters of their own selves.
Let’s see at a glance the three prime benefits of music.
Music promotes learning.
It trains the brain and thus it is a practical aid for children to learn. Its effects are multi-sensory. It acts as a stimulus that reaches the brain’s nerve to help decode signals being sent to the ear, eye, and body. It creates coordination that further facilitates learning. It builds a positive atmosphere that reinforces children’s learning development.
Music strengthens confidence.
Since music creates sound that can be repetitiously played, learning process takes place easily. Constant exposure to music allows children to learn how to communicate as music evokes emotion. It intensifies expression, bringing out their whole musical experiences and sharing these to encourage others. It makes them fulfilled as it capacitates them to do things that have significance.
Music reinforces excellence.
Music possesses the attribute of accuracy. It is mathematics in every beat and every tune that you hear. It determines how slow and fast the music must be. There is tempo, so to speak. Timing is important that every note has a count. If one note misses the right count, cacophony is the result. Since music never entertains a wrong note, it teaches children to be consistent in giving their best until mastery is gained. This makes music to be simply spelled in another word and that is E-X-C-E-L-L-E-N-C-E!
Music has a driving force that learning it can work for the advantage of children. It opens a new door for them to make it their profession or simply an utter enjoyment where they can communicate and simply express.
