Music accompanies children from the very beginning, from the period of pregnancy. It turns out that children are able not only to perceive stimuli, but also to remember individual sounds. Research was carried out on newborns, which showed that they recognize the text of a fairy tale read during pregnancy, react positively to the voice of parents or to the sounds of songs that mother listened to during pregnancy. As a child grows, music begins to take on more and more importance. It turns out that thanks to her, the child is able to calm down, calm down and relax.

Music also positively influences the development of communication skills and the ability to deal with emotions, especially the difficult ones. What else does a child gain from listening to music?

1) If we use more lively pieces during the day, we will stimulate the nervous system. The child may then have more energy to act. Calm music, including classical music, calms down.

2) Music and singing songs will have a positive effect on the development of children’s speech. It even happens that a child sings the songs he heard in kindergarten before child even learns to build sentences.

3) Playing with instruments allows your child to learn different sounds and play different rhythms. On the other hand, independent preparation of instruments, e.g. rattles, will develop the children’s creativity of and stimulate their interests.

4) Music connects dance. Thanks to it, children have the opportunity to perform various exercises. In this way, we improve their motor coordination, improve their physical condition and provide a specific dose of movement.

Musical and movement games are also activities that allow children to improve their focus and concentration. They are also able to respond better to commands addressed to them. All this shows that music is an extremely important element that has a real impact on the development and functioning of a child. The kindergarten is therefore a place where children should meet on a daily basis with various forms of activities, including music classes. Singing songs together, playing to them, using instruments or dancing not only positively influences the child’s behavior, but also contributes to integrating children with each other.

Therefore, it is worth taking the children to concerts or inviting musicians to performances in kindergarten and organizing workshops where you can use musical games. Meetings with music give children a lot of fun and satisfaction. They are conducive to the acquisition of new skills and the improvement of those that are already developed. So let’s sing with the children, let’s play and dance with them. For us adults, it will also be an interesting and probably inspiring experience.
