What We Know As Parents & Teachers
As parents and teachers, we know from experience the benefits of early music experiences for children.
We see the joy and enthusiasm they feel when engaging in interactive music and movement activities. We know that moving and interacting with music helps children to express their creativity and put their abundant energy to use in a positive way.
We have seen first hand that regular interactive music groups result in social and emotional development, self-regulation development and physical development. We also know that fun, high energy music activities help to create a positive atmosphere in the home and classroom, positive interactions between children, their peers and their parents and teachers.
But, is there a connection between music and language learning?
What Does The Science Say About Music and Language Learning?
Several studies conducted over the past 20 years have shown a significant connection between music and language learning.
These studies indicate that children who are involved in musical activities and develop awareness of music and melody benefit from a boost in phonological awareness and pre-reading abilities. Children who participate in early childhood music benefit from accelerated development in word recognition and spelling abilities.
Finally, musical activities promote the development of auditory perception, phonological memory and metacognitive knowledge, three components that are vital to the development of linguistic abilities.
