Music is a fundamental element in this first stage of the educational system. The child begins to express himself in another way and is able to actively integrate into society, because music helps him achieve autonomy in his usual activities, take care of himself and the environment, and expand his world of relationships. It is important for their intellectual, auditory, sensory, speech and motor development.
Music has the gift of bringing people together. The child who lives in contact with music learns to live better with other children, establishing a more harmonious communication. At this age they love music. In addition, it provides them with all these benefits:
1. Security: It gives them emotional security, confidence, because they feel understood when sharing songs, and immersed in a climate of help, collaboration and mutual respect.
2. Learning: The child’s literacy stage is more stimulated with music. Through children’s songs, in which the syllables are rhymed and repetitive, and accompanied by gestures made when singing, the child improves his way of speaking and understanding the meaning of each word. And thus, they will become literate in a faster way.
3. Concentration: Music is also beneficial for the child in terms of power of concentration, in addition to improving his ability to learn in mathematics. Music is pure math. In addition, it makes it easier for children to learn other languages, enhancing their memory.
4. Body expression: With music, the child’s body expression is more stimulated. They use new resources by adapting their body movement to the rhythms of different works, thus contributing to the enhancement of the rhythmic control of their body. Through music, the child can improve his coordination and combine a series of behaviors. Lay him on his back and move them around so he can dance while you sing to him. You can carry him and hug him on your lap singing other children’s rhythms.
