Picture your little munchkin playing a tiny guitar like a miniature rockstar. Cute, right? But did you know that learning music isn’t just something adorable, it can be great when it comes to your child’s development. How? – you ask. Well, today, I’m about to break it down to you that music is not just a source of entertainment and why learning music is important for your child.
I know what you are thinking, “Why music? What’s the big deal about it? Is it worth the time and money?” Oh, trust me, it totally is! And you are about to see why!
Why Learning Music Is Important for Your Child
1. Music Helps Your Brain Boosting
Alright, I’m not gonna hit you with a science lecture, but know that learning music boosts brain power. Talk about a superhero-like effect – music does this on those little brains of your child. There’s been much research on the earth and all have shown very positive results toward music. It’s great for children’s memory and language skills.
Albert Einstein once said, ‘If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician.’ If you just noticed that most of the great scientists loved any musical instrument, there’s almost like a mysterious connection between playing music and having an extraordinary brain.
So make your child learn music, he/she might just turn into a music prodigy and solve quantum physics equations on the side!
2. Makes Your Child Confidence
Confidence is the key to every success – you don’t need to be a Psychology graduate to know that. At every step of your child’s life, he/she needs the confidence to go with. Why not build it from childhood?
Picture your kid performing music that he/she learned in front of a crowd of people. Yes, quite a scary scene for the first-timer. But with time, it’ll feel nothing and confidence will kick in. Don’t get surprised if your scared little shy girl turns into a Beyoncé!
Learning music will help your child conquer stage fright. They feel confident about doing anything for the rest of their life – being a superstar or even conquering the world.
3. Making Friends is not Scary Anymore
Remember those dreaded middle school days? Climbing Mount Everest felt a lot easier than making friends. Well, you don’t want your kid to go through the same, right?
If your kid learns music, he/she will have a lot of social opportunities to bond with people – joining bands or jamming with friends for example. You’ve seen the cool kids in your childhood who plays guitar. Remember how everyone wanted to be their friend?
Wouldn’t you want that for your child? By learning music, your child can be adored by all – pretty important to have a healthy childhood.
4. Teaches the Quality of Patience
Learning music isn’t all unicorns and rainbows – take it from a music school where so many children are getting their lesson.
It takes real dedication and patience. Months of practice and sticking to it make a good musician. So by learning music, your children are not only learning music but they will learn the art of perseverance too.
You may have no idea how important this quality is in the long run for your kid. So by making them learn music, you are making them ready for the bigger battle in life.
Plus, you’ll get to be a part of the great musical journey of your loving child. Won’t you be their biggest cheerleader along the way?
5. Your Child Will be a Multitasker
They say people can’t do more than one task at the same time. Hey, not your musician kid. Picture your child playing drums with all four of his/her hands and legs. Some of them may sing with the music too.
So learning music boosts their multitasking skills. It improves reflexes and quality to divide attention perfectly to different tasks at the same time.
6. Make Your Child a Creative Genius
If your children learn music, there’s a good chance that Einstein will get nothing on them. But how?
You’ve heard of the two split sides of the brain, right? They have cool medical terms but we are just gonna call them the left brain and the right brain. Did you know musicians have an entire symphony going on inside their noggins?
Music stimulates both hemispheres. It makes your kid a creative genius also with some problem-solving powers! Have you seen Albert Einstein with his Piano? He looked pretty handsome.
Who knows, maybe your kid will be the next Hans Zimmer – the Interstellar theme music just gave me chills!
7. A Great Career Choice
Be honest – is there any single day that you don’t hear music? Look around, music is everywhere, and so are the musicians.
See the huge work opportunity in the music industry now? Being a successful musician has never been this easy – thanks to the internet!
Back in the day, not all good musicians could make it big in the industry for not having connections inside it. But now, things have changed. If a musician has real talent, connections walk over to them.
Picture this – your little son learned music and felt passionate about it, so he opened a youtube channel and started posting his music. He has talent, so he soon blew up on social media. In no time, big music levels want to sign him in, your son is not only financially successful now, but he’s also popular and loved by so many people. Felt good to imagine, didn’t it?
So there you have it! It’s been ages since music was just a hobby, We no longer live in that era. Learning music is a skill that can change the course of your child’s life with better growth. Even if you ignore all the deep and important reasonings, you can at least see your kiddo having fun.
Now that you know why learning music is important for your child, Let your child unleash their inner musical beast and watch them rock the world, one note at a time!
