How Children Grow, Learn and Protect Memories Through Music and Movement

Inspirational-quote

What feelings begin to erupt in your body when you hear the sound of your favorite song on the radio? Do you hear the music and movement takes over your body? For many people, this is the natural course of action. Music hits their ears and their bodies can’t help but move. They want to get up and dance or tap their foot to the beat. They may experience other emotions like sadness or a feeling of regret depending on the connection that they have to the music. This connection can be in place due to early childhood music or music that had an impact on them as adults.

What effect does music have on you? Are there certain songs that just grab your heart or make your hips sway?

Our music preferences are sometimes put in place early on in our lives. Oftentimes, parents use early childhood music to calm them to sleep or to wake them up in the mornings. Music can be a call to playtime or a winding down habit just like story time. It is very common for adults who are very passionate about music to trace the roots of their passion back to earlier years in their life. They learned to take joy in music and movement because it was valued and encouraged in their childhood environment.

There are many benefits to introducing your child to music from a very young age. Their early childhood music experiences could very well shape how they think about and enjoy music later in life.

The benefits that come with introducing music to your child from a young age include:

– Increased sense of creativity
– Increased interest in moving their bodies (exercise is healthy)
– Improved focus and concentration or ability to relax to music
– Greater comfort dancing with others

There are other benefits that can come up for some growing children. For instance, the overweight child may eventually find that their love of music gets them through workouts needed to lose weight. Music and movement may even become a career for your children in the future. This will be established for them by their early childhood music experiences taking place right now!

Even if your child never becomes the next Mozart and doesn’t seem to take much interest in music on the professional level, you can guarantee they are learning something through early childhood music programs. They are, at the very least, learning to express themselves and relax their minds in an entertaining, soothing manner.

Music can drive someone to complete a task that they are dreading and can move someone to tears if the right mental connection is there. There are many different effects that music can have on someone. The same song may bring on a different sense of emotion for one person than it does for another.

To top it off, music is often the most powerful thing to tie the past to the current day or even the future. Some songs are simply timeless because of the memories they evoke.
