Music can shape abilities and character. Musical education can greatly contribute to children’s intellectual development as well. Kids who learn to play an instrument can learn a valuable lesson in discipline to master playing their instrument. Children can develop their math and pattern-recognition skills. By understanding beat, rhythm, and scales, children are learning how to divide, create fractions and recognize patterns. It seems that music wires a child’s brain to help him better understand other areas of maths.
Awareness of alliteration, rhyme, syllables and rhythms are essential skills for learning to read and write as it supports the ability to break words down into sounds, work out what those sounds are and put them together again to make new words. Like music, all language follow a sequence whether it’s the order of sounds in words, words in sentences or information in a story. Experimenting with musical instruments and melodies helps in every area of brain development. Music affects the growth of a child’s brain academically, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Many studies have found that involvement in music leads to positive personal, social and motivational effects.
