Music in Early Childhood
Early Childhood educators have been using music for a variety of reasons. The use of music provides an outlet for further brain development, learning social cues, enhancing language development, promoting creative and emotional expressions, and developing fine and gross motor skills.
Music between parent and/or caregiver and child provides an opportunity to bonding and strengthening relationships.
Music is fun! And while we are having fun, our brains are firing away and creating pathways for development!
Music in early childhood is important for brain development. By listening to music, singing, and playing music, our brains soak up information for language and speech development. Playing musical instruments in rhythmic patterns engages the corpus callosum- the bundle of nerves connecting both sides of the brain. This process is essential for brain development in infants and toddlers.
Social and Emotional Learning
Engaging in music activities with others is a great way to learn social cues and emotional responses.Group music activities are structured to encourage interaction between parent and child, as well as children and their peers.
Music is a multi-sensory experience! We feel music, we see music and we hear music. Our classes utilize a variety of instruments and props with different sounds and different textures for sensory integration.Playing instruments in early childhood has proven effective for developing both fine and gross motor skills.
We have fun! And while we have fun, our brains and bodies are enhancing their development through the interactive music activities!

Participating in musical improvisation encourages children to communicate with each other, learn to listen, and respond in a healthy manner.
Playing with others provides an outlet for social and emotional learning, not to mention fun!
Music Theory and Application
In our program, we are teaching beginning music theory concepts such as: rhythm, dynamics, musical structure, and orchestration.
By using a wide variety of instruments, such as the guitar, keyboard, drums, and other percussion instruments, participants can immediately apply music theory concepts.
Students can learn all about different types of music, from Beethoven to Bieber!
