Benefits Of Learning Music

Music and Skill Development
In addition to improving creativity, learning music cultivates many skills that will continue to be useful to your children throughout their lives. The following are some of the skills that listening to music and taking music lessons help develop in children:
• Concentration 
Learning a musical instrument will help your child develop concentration, as they must focus on a particular activity over extended periods of time. Developing concentration in this way also will help them when they must focus their attention on other subjects at school.
• Coordination  
Practicing musical instruments improves hand-eye coordination. Children develop important motor skills when playing music just as they do when playing different sports.
• Relaxation 
More and more, music therapy is being used to complement more traditional forms of medicine. Researchers acknowledge that certain types of music can aid relaxation by lowering heart rates and blood pressure. 
• Patience  
and Perseverance. In order to learn a musical instrument, children must develop patience and perseverance, which will help them later in life when they must tackle other more difficult challenges.
• Self-Confidence 
The act of learning and playing an instrument, the encouragement of a teacher and the enthusiasm of a proud parent, will build in a child a sense of pride and confidence. Moreover, children who practice self-expression and creativity often become better communicators later in life.
• Harmony and Tranquility
Music helps us to Harmonize our vital body functions and acts as a sedative and tranquilizer for our ailing and agitated minds. This helps in improving the behavior of children and streamlining their energies.

 Researchers also have found a significant relationship between music instruction and positive performances in such areas as: reading comprehension, spelling, mathematics, listening skills, primary mental abilities (verbal, perceptual, numeric, spatial) and motor skills.
The Holistic Development, which signifies Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Growth of a child can be achieved by simply introducing music in our children’s lives.
