The Benefits of Music Education in Child Development


Researchers from the Medical College of Child Psychiatry believe that music education can help children manage their emotions, focus their attention and reduce their anxiety levels. This is the result of their research.

According to scientists, these results only confirmed the assumption that by practicing music, for example, playing the piano, the child can cope with their psychological disorders. Musical games Role-playing, movement and finger games, sound imitation and play on children’s noise instruments, singing and gymnastics to music – the right kind of activity for children. By participating in these games with adults or other children in music lessons, the child develops and applies many of their abilities such as:

  • Development of musical memory, hearing and rhythm;
  • Shapes posture, strengthens the muscular corset and improves overall physical development;
  • Acquires skills of non-verbal and verbal communication;
  • Develops skills of large and fine motor skills, as well as tactile, visual, auditory perception abilities.

Rhythmic musical activity in the classroom is also very important because the exchange of information between the right and left hemispheres is accelerated. Thinking, recognizing, perceiving and making decisions are only possible through the synchronization of the two hemispheres, each responsible for its own specialization.

Researchers’ conclusions Scientists have found a significant positive effect of rhythmic musical games on children: thanks to them, children develop excellent memorization abilities and the ability to focus attention.

It has long been proven that the brain of musicians functions much better. Scientists from Vanderbilt University found that musicians more often than others involved in the work of both hemispheres at the same time, besides the activity they have the same.

In general, the benefits of music education and IQ in fans of musical signs is much higher, their brain processes the information received faster. The simultaneous development of both hemispheres can be explained by the fact that to play a musical instrument you need two hands, and accordingly the signals of neurons are distributed equally. People involved in music fully apply the creative talent that they have from nature.
