Music is known worldwide as a good therapy which induces the sense of positivity in an individual. For children, it is known to give them cognitive benefits. Music has also been known to increase an individual’s attention span thereby giving helping them succeed academically and or professionally. You can induce your child in a music environment from the very start of his life and see how he gradually turns into a smarter and more focused individual.
There are a variety of ways you can impart the sense and knowledge of music within your child. Here are top 6 ways you can create a music environment at home:
1. Have a music space in your home
One of the best ways to encourage music in your home is to have a dedicated space allotted for same. This place shouldn’t be too clumsy or full of furniture etc. Rather it should be a clean peaceful space where you and your child can sing and practice music. Make it a point to daily go and spend at least a few minutes if not hours in this space, listening or playing music.
2. Have Music sessions
Similar to having a kitty party and or birthday party, you should organize music sessions with a few friends of yours as well as your child. It doesn’t have to be a large gathering, rather it can simply be a small sitting where a few friends come, bring along the instruments they have (if any) and all of you together sing, learn and practice music for a fun weekend.
3. Play a variety of music at your home
You don’t know which kind of music your children will like and hence if he doesn’t respond to some kind music say jazz, it is probably time to introduce him to some other genre such as techno, pop etc. Children at a young age don’t know much about music and hence it is your responsibility to introduce him to a variety of genres available in the world. Don’t make him like or choose the same music you like, rather give him/her the flexibility to choose the music he wishes to listen. There are a variety of music players and radios available online you can buy them for playing and listening to music at home. To know which player is the best click this link.
Introduce your child to new types of music. You probably can start your day listening some music and eventually your child will develop a habit of listening to same as he grows. Keep in mind that you ought to be an active listener before you can actually convince your child to do so. If your child is too small you probably can play music in background and dance with your child grabbing his hands which eventually will induce the sense of beats to him/her.
5. Try Creating Some Music and Beats With Your Child
I don’t mean for you to create a beautiful composition, rather go simple, and start creating and experimenting with a few beats and tunes. Include your child in such sessions and encourage him to create something on his own. The best way to go forward with these sessions would be to buy a piano for your child and let him play it on his own. Give him some guidance, however, don’t force your ideas on him, let him explore the instruments on his own, and hence get to discover what music is on his own.
These 5 tips I believe will promote a music environment in your home. Not only will listening and developing music help your child become focused, but it will also help you in becoming a more active human being.
