Yes, we at Matoyi strongly believe that Music is a good for babies development, more so cognitive development.
Did you ever ponder as to why kids in different life stages show their love for music differently? Could these bangs & noises be a form of music for them? Did you think what could be the benefit of listening & playing the music/musical instruments?
We often get irritated as babies bang the drums with their full energy. We do feel tortured at times when kids sing to the top of their voices with harsh background instrumental music.
But then, should we feel that way? Don’t you feel the joy of listening to some lovely music in a car with windows pulled down? Don’t you feel like listening to good music or even instrumental music triggers a sense of calmness & creates a positive aura? Doesn’t rejoicing the music with family enlighten your happiness quotient?
Did you ever notice that your singing or Rhyming made your kid smile, help them sway to the tunes, clap hands and sing along? Indeed unaware of, you helped your kid develop cognitive, social, language skills.
Revelation : Why babies love Music?
Children, contrary to your thought, enjoy music from the time they are in their mother’s womb. Haven’t you heard grannies say “listen to some good music”? Well, that’s not just for to-be-mommy’s mood elevation. But the foetus does react to instrumental / raga/rhythmic beats if played regularly, so their connection with music is for sure beyond our imagination.
Did you ever think, why 70-80% of toys for kids are musical in some way or the other?
With those Rattle toys, musical Gym, Drums & Piano, you’ve only helped them bond this connection more. Music is a sensory experience & helping kids learn paves a great development path for them.
Let’s help them nurture this “passion” & develop in a fun way.
Why is Music good for babies development:
Boosting Neurons & Memory:
80% of the brain development happens till 6years and it is during the first few years of life, when the brain is forming the network pathways. Music stimulates the brain areas and neurons which are concerned with Reading, Learning, Maths & emotional developments and this results in sharpening the memory.
Social & Confident Child:
Going musical helps them learn life skills of rejoicing with groups; it makes them aware of “teamwork” & helps to develop “group appreciation”. And, that’s what we wish to kick off in their foundation years, isn’t it? Socialising, a big task can be made a little simpler with the help of music.
Terrified of the “aggression” borne by kids these days? Sometimes it gets damn painful. Well, this is one activity that can help them gain patience, have them feel peace of life & let the strings connect to get the ultimate joy out of it. Let them have a better emotional connection.
- Inculcates Discipline & Ignites Creativity: Discipline:
That’s mom’s favorite complaint & kid’s most hated words so why not help them achieve it? Exposing kids to music & musical instruments can help you believe that “Practice – Practice and Practice, until you succeed”, gets embedded in their lives. It is a discovery of Self-learning & exploration for them. No turning back from this creative pursuit, it is gonna develop them the way we wish to see.
Let them explore the world somewhat in their way, develop skills by experiment & love life in a fun way! Music is good for babies development and let them explore the way they want to.
