Music also helps children to express themselves, building on their character, confidence and self-esteem because it creates an urge for them to move and dance freely without thinking and just enjoy themselves with peers. The sense of repetition and rhythm helps to develop the memory of a child as well as building their dialect. After all, who would remember the 26 letters of the alphabet without the famous ABC song?!
Music enables children to learn new words and expand their vocabulary, giving them more words to express themselves resulting in an increase in confidence and creativity.
What is the most important reason to sing and rhyme with your child?
It gives them an early love and passion for language which will form a solid foundation that will help children to value learning. So take a little time every day to sing and rhyme with your child no matter what age – it’s never too early or too late to introduce music into your child’s lifestyle and the benefits will be with them forever!
