Pick Up A Musical Instrument And Start Playing

Why your child should pick up a musical instrument and start playing

Music provides a child with the ability to better express himself and there is also a causal link between spatial intelligence and musical ability (the ability to perceive the world accurately and to form mental pictures of things). Providing music education to young children helps in the development of a child’s language and reasoning abilities. So you would ideally want your child to learn to play an instrument at a young age.

Besides learning to play an instrument, did you know that your child will also pick up life skills without knowing it?

Some of the main things that your child will learn:

  1. It teaches your child to be responsible.
  1. It teaches your child to succeed with self-discipline.
  1. They learn to effectively manage their time.
  1. It builds confidence and self-esteem.
  1. It Fosters creativity in your child.

One of the most important thing that a child learns is the importance of hard work, as only hard work and dedication will help them in achieving proficiency. As the saying goes

if you stick to something

 Learning music (music theory, memorizing certain music scores for concert performances) requires children to hone their concentration skill which is important as this skill can be exported and utilized in the completion of their schoolwork and in other areas of their life. When young children first take up music, they look at it as an exciting new adventure that they are about to embark upon and that provides the Positive Motivation required. However this lasts only for a couple of weeks, once the initial enthusiasm wears off, this can be compensated by disciplined practice schedules.

Music is obviously an interesting phenomenon in human life and has a deep effect on our psyche.

We all know that music can have an effect on our state of mind i.e.) It can pump us up and calm us down, it can make us happy or even sad depending on what the song is about.

If you are wondering who invented it, you may be surprised to learn that it was never really invented but has been around before recorded history began. As time continues to go on we can only speculate how music and human evolution will change, but we can safely assume that music will continue to be a part of human life.

I am so blessed for the place music has in my life, I love it dearly and I thank the Lord for allowing me to do what I love and I will continue to pass it on as a legacy to my young friends and students.

God bless.

    I agree , my daughter started learning keyboard early and it has really helped her. Absolutely recommended for children to get into music early in life.
