Benefits of Music Lessons for Children (5-19)

image

“Music heals the soul” we’ve all heard and experienced at some point in our life. It has the power to make you feel deeply, to make yourself feel understood even if it’s just within the lyrics, to express yourself. Did you know that Music can be much more than that? It’s show that music lessons can help your child in school as well.

Music has a way of enhancing what your child learns in other subjects (not just music) and helping them retain that information. Children taking music lessons have to use their eyes, ears, and small and large muscles as well. This helps the brain develop more neural (learning) activity than those that don’t take music lessons.

The benefits of taking music lessons are simply amazing!Keeping up a steady practice schedule instills great discipline and work ethic in kids, teaching them to work hard and be patient.Playing an instrument improves hand-eye coordination and nuanced muscle control. Children who grow up around music show more advanced language development, even at 2 years old, than children who don’t.
Take lessons is a website that connects your child with a teacher within your area based on either the instrument or subject that they’d like to learn. They are an amazing place to start your child’s music journey. They do extensive background checks on all the teachers, so that isn’t something that you need to worry about. They aren’t going to reference you to someone who “think” they should be qualified at teaching a certain subject or instrument. Take lessons make sure they DO know.

I was very impressed with the variety of lessons they offer. They aren’t just giving your child the opportunity to learn music but well beyond that. Music recording lessons, Speaking voice lessons, dance lessons, Songwriting lessons, and so much more. SO, no matter what your child is interested in, they will definitely have it and be able to point you in the right direction.

Being creative with music builds your child’s mind to want to do other creative, smart, great things. This will lead them to be creative and bright kids because education in music and the arts helps children learn to think about problems creatively, finding multiple solutions to problems. Learning music improves a child’s ability to focus, which can lead to better studying and higher test scores.They look at everything so differently. Learning music helps children focus and actually retain so much more than non-creative types!

Not only does learning music boost their self esteem and confidence levels, but it helps them get rid of stage fright. Kids who study music and the arts are more likely to graduate from high school and are less likely to abuse drugs and alcohol, which is another amazing thing! If they have something to stand for, they are less likely to fall into peer pressure!
