Brain Development:

During the first four years of life, the brain is developing at a rapid pace, taking in information and learning from every experience. Sensory experiences increase brain power. When the brain is stimulated, more synapses per nerve cell are developed. In addition an increased development of blood vessels better nourish each cell.

Research shows that music has the ability to teach the brain higher levels of thinking, which include problem solving, forming conclusions, inference, comparing and differentiating between objects, analyzing, evaluating and processing information, and synthesizing. An important research study called "The Mozart Effect" concluded that briefly listening to Mozart immediately increased spatial-temporal reasoning or mental images for up to a 10-15 minute span.

Music training has also been shown to effect organization within the brain. The planum temporal, which is used in both language and early auditory processing as well as the corpus callosum, which is used transfer information from one brain hemisphere to the other, are larger in musicians than in non-musicians.

In addition, hands-on, one-on-one parenting greatly affects young children and their brain development. Parent-child quality time spent in adjoined activity, allows for enriching experiences that further nourish children.
Music rhythm helps a child recognize timing for dance.



Social Development:

Studies show that children with involvement in music and the arts are often more competent with skills required in daily life. There is more originality, can come up with a larger variety of solutions to problems, have a greater focused attention, are all-around more innovative, and prove better able to integrate diverse facts and ideas. Music and dance can instill a healthy well-being as well as increase self-esteem.


Language:

Music and language are directly linked as a single system within the brain, which is developed in the earliest stages of infancy and continues into childhood. Learning song lyrics also develops a child’s vocabulary.


Emotional Development:

Infants who have been sung to by their parents, experience a much stronger emotional bond to them. Quality time spent with your child shows them, through an intentional action, that they are important, which instills in your child a greater sense of security, self-esteem, and closeness with you.


Academics & Character Traits:

Children who are involved in music-related activities, have shown to do better in school. They tend to be more responsible, dependable, and exercise a higher level of self-discipline. In general, the more different types of artistic experiences, the more well-rounded your child will be overall.
