When a child is involved in music, it increases their self-esteem, self-motivation, and self-efficacy. Creative participation in music improves self-image and self-awareness and creates positive self-attitudes. Each child develops social, emotional, and intellectual skills that foster good health and well-being and, ultimately, success in life.
Music ignites all areas of child development: intellectual, social, emotional, motor, language, memory, and overall literacy. Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words. Dancing to music helps children build motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression. For toddlers and pre-schoolers, music-making is a dynamic social learning experience. When making music as a group, children learn teamwork while they contribute to a song. Also, music helps children learn that together, they can make something larger than the sum of its parts.
