In today’s busy world, it is increasingly important for parents to optimize quality time with their children. As mentors, educators and playmates to their newborns, toddlers and pre-adolescents, parents shape their children’s social and intellectual development more than any other influence. Educational children’s music offers parents the unique opportunity to positively impact their children’s lives through simultaneous entertainment and education whether at home or on-the-go.
A child’s mind is a clean slate. Early impressions, especially if routine, act as the child’s foundation and are essential to his or her long-term success. As such, parents should carefully select the experiences to which their children are exposed.
We all know that music is a powerful and pleasant experience as well as a medium for communicating feelings, emotions, and information. Music nourishes the positive elements of our nature. It is, therefore, very important for parents to use music in creating and nourishing the positive virtues that are essential for their kid’s healthy development.
The question now arises, what kind of music is best suited for kids when they are in the early stages of development, especially when they are between 1 and 10 years of age? Music with lyrics that cover educational topics or fun sounding musical songs can go a long way in creating a fun-filled learning experience for kids. Additionally, playing educational songs that promote physical activities such as running, jumping, dancing and playing can be extremely beneficial in promoting healthy lifestyles that can last a lifetime. Song content can teach early learning topics such as the alphabet, basic numbers and counting, identifying sounds, colors, names of cities, stars, animals and so on.
Educational music is no doubt an important component of a kid’s learning process in life. It is not surprising that kids learn basic concepts quickly when these are set to musical tunes and melodies that they can sing along with and dance to. This approach to education can also be one of the most enjoyable ways of learning for a child.
