The years from newborn to age 6 are critical times for engaging in and incorporating music education in a child’s life. Children develop at a faster pace than adults during the early childhood years, and that period has been identified in literature as the “music babble” stage or primary music development.
Kirsten Morgan, the executive director at The Diller-Quaile School of Music in Manhattan, speaks about the benefits of music education and how parents can incorporate music into their child’s life.
Music is a universal form of expression and communication that is inherent to all cultures. We believe that rich, socially interactive, sensitive, and nurturing interactive musical experiences positively affect young children’s lives and build a foundation from which all future learning may be flourished. Our young students at The Diller-Quaile Schoole of Music participate in music by actively listening, watching, and engaging in each experience we share with them.
It’s important to remember that all children depend on their own experience in order to make sense of their evolving world. Musical and artistic experiences all offer emotional and sensorial means by which they may connect. These experiences all enhance future learning.
When you’re thinking about young children, they are developing at a rapid rate. More rapidly than at any other time in their life. Their brains are actively seeking experiences to build connections and to learn. Music provides ongoing opportunities for the brain to build strong connections and it’s very compelling for the young child. They are developing critical thinking skills, purposeful focus in their music experiences, problem-solving abilities, perseverance, and music making inspires us to think in new ways, express emotion, connect with others, and build community.
