Music for Kids: Stimulating Creativity and Making Learning Fun

By Cecil Subscribe to RSS | July 20th 2012 | Views:

We all know that music is relaxing and soothing. However, there is one thing you might not know -- listening to music is the one activity that engages the whole of your brain. Many other activities require only the right or the left side of the brain...even a small part on one side. But music does not – it actually involves your whole brain. Additionally, music therapy has proven highly beneficial. This is the reason surgeons listen to relaxing tunes before and during an intensive operation. Music is also now incorporated in therapy sessions and at the spa. Nothing beats a good tune, right?

With powerful evidence like this, you should not ignore the most important function of life: the learning process. And this is especially true with children. The power of music needs to be integrated as well into lessons for the kids.

1. Makes learning come alive

It is difficult to understand something that you cannot visualize -- let alone comprehend. With music, everything comes alive. You can see something you have never seen before and feel that which you have not previously experienced. When you engage your senses, it is easier for you to remember and relate to the concept. After singing the nursery rhyme "Mary Had A Little Lamb", sheep become adorable animals and many want to own one. Formulas, concepts and theories become easier to teach; , and because music makes it fun, all children will want to learn more about them.

2. Enhances creativity

Many consider music to be a creative art and encourage imagination as it enhances the senses. Music can be used to stimulate the creativity of children by giving them a concept and asking them to form a tune out of it. Creating a song is no simple thing and they will have to look for antonyms and rhyming words while incorporating the necessary information. It will force them to adopt an attitude of thinking outside of the box. By the time they finish writing a song about the functions of the heart (for example), they will have become brighter individuals.

3. Makes grasping new concept easier

Standard concepts such as those in math in science raise many questions in curious minds. The questions arise out of a lack of understanding of a concept which is new and different from that which they have encountered previously. They attempt to reason out why it is so and not any other way. With music and the use of symbolism, many of the traditional hurdles to learning and lowered or removed completely. It become as easy as A, B, C!

4. Engraves concepts in the mind

If asked to explain a concept you learned 20 years ago that has nothing to do with your career, you might be unable to do so -- yet you can sing lyrics to a song you heard 20 years ago without any effort at all. Music has a way of sticking in your mind...even if you can't remember the name of your neighbor for the last five years!

5. It is fun

Above all, music is fun and engaging. It is a relaxed manner of learning and children learn much more easily when they do not feel compelled to learn. "Edutainment" is once again at the forefront as a preferred method to enhance learning among children.
