The Benefits of Music

We have all heard that music benefits kids, makes them “smarter”, more “well-rounded”, if you will.  It is my experience, that every little one I come across, regardless of other factors in their life, takes to music naturally, fluidly and effortlessly.  By the time kids are in middle school, many have lost the self-assuredness to move spontaneously to a catchy beat, pick up and sing a familiar song out loud, and even the confidence to try to play a musical instrument.  Through my music classes, I hope to instill in young children a love of music that they will be able to draw on and pull confidence from, for the rest of their lives.  The “intellectual” benefits of learning music are documented, showing that kids who learn an instrument consistently do better in other subject areas such as reading and math.  The “emotional” benefits are also huge, providing kids with an outlet, something they can escape through and to, and the confidence of achieving something through practice and hard work.  The younger a child is when he or she begins music instruction, the more beneficial it can be.  The following article outlines the tremendous benefits children receive from participating in music education.  Happy Reading!
