Many people think that learning and listening to music is just a hobby and there is nothing more to it. But there are many benefits for children who listen to music.
Scientists have discovered that between the ages of 4-6 years, children’s brains develop much faster if they listen to music.
Since a healthy mind means a healthy body, music lessons are the medicine for a great memory.
Children who listen to music have a higher reading and writing ability as well as a higher understanding of mathematics.
Now that children are at school, they should try developing their brains through music. There are many ways of doing this but not without the help of your parents.
Children can listen to good songs that are easy to sing. They can also join the music and dance club in their schools. Here they can learn how to sing and read music.
Learning together with other children will challenge you to quickly improve your music skills.
Children can also learn how to make music by playing different musical instruments.
In Rwanda, drums are a common musical instrument. Learning to beat a drum is not different from learning how to sing.
The same is true for other instruments like the guitar, piano, violin and flute.
So, children who learn music either by singing or playing an instrument will always have the benefit of a better memory. Good music creates a healthy mind and enables people to relax.
