Often parents get puzzled when it comes to creating a musical environment for their children at home.
Here are the ways by which you can incorporate music in your routine to achieve the goal:
- Listen to Music:
To help your kids determine their liking for a particular type of music and the music of their significance, play music of different genre at home. Also, allow your child to interact with music through movement and conversation. You can help your child by moving his or her hands and legs to music or ask your child questions like, “how does this music make you feel? Or “are you enjoying the music?” to get them thinking more deeply about it.
- Sing to Music:
Sing music while doing day-to-day work at home in front of your child. Also, as he/she grows, practice repeating simple songs regularly to help them learn common melodies and rhythms.
According to Music at Heart, “Research has shown that early musical interaction between parent and child can enhance the development of the infant’ communication and perception skills.” Singing is the best way to eternalize music in children.
- Dance to music:
As we all know, kids are very sharp minded as they easily catch what is around them. In such case, dancing on different music can help kids learn music. Make your kid dance and dance with them, as well. Make your kid clap on the music, if he/she is an infant. You can also rock them while playing a lullaby, which also helps stimulate brain growth.
- Make music together:
As a parent, it is important for you to support them as much as you can. You can make music with them like while they play piano, you can accompany them by singing or playing some other musical instrument. Any combination in any genre of music will send a strong message to your child about the shared joy of making music.
Being a parent, you act as a role model for your child. Whatever they would see you doing, they will learn the same. So, act accordingly and help them learn and grow through music.
