What better way to open your child’s mind than to expose them to music! Not only can music be intellectually stimulating, it helps children develop social and emotional skills that will be important to them throughout their lives. When children feel that a song is happy or sad they are developing empathy, and by hearing music from around the world they are learning about different societies in the universal language of music. Through and appreciation for music, your child will develop respect for the emotional, creative, and cultural ideas of others, and discover an outlet for expressing their own ideas too.
