Encourage your
                    toddler to make music!

Music of one kind or another has been around since the dawn of man. But for each of us, musical exposure began in the womb. The rhythmic sound of mommy's heartbeat was music to our ears.

Some experts say the need to make music is inborn. They say children instinctively bang pots, pans, boxes, toys and furniture to make music. And when infants and children are allowed to experiment with instruments their passion and aptitude for music blossoms.

Benefits Of Music
Encouraging musical expression in children is an important aspect of child rearing. Experimentation with musical instruments helps to develop a child's growing mind and body. The following are just some of the many benefits experts state a child reaps if given even simple musical instruments.
  • Self Confidence
  • Manual Dexterity
  • Patience
  • Eye/Hand Coordination
  • Self-Control
  • Improvisation
  • Concentration
  • Action And Reaction
  • Memory Retention
And always keep in mind - when children are making music they are involved in an educational, stimulating, non-violent and non-aggressive activity. Plus, it is something they enjoy!

We hope you give your children the opportunity to experience the joy of making music. Encourage music making in your home or daycare setting. Professional educators know the importance of musical experimentation - in fact, it doesn't matter whether you buy instruments, or use pots, pans and spoons - the main thing is to encourage music making. Bang, strum, blow, shake, sing and dance. Your child will be developing important skills and having fun at the same time. Stimulate your child to live and learn through music!
