Music and its education confer a lot to children regarding their overall personality, enabling them to be successful in almost all walks of life.
Music is not just a subject to be taught to children at schools. It is rather a whole blessing in itself which keeps consoling the heart, mind, and soul of these children when they grow into adults. Unfortunately, many schools have stopped teaching music as a subject just to give space to other subjects. It may cause lacking in some of the important aspects of the grooming personality of growing children. Instead, they must encourage kids to practice various sorts of music and develop very charming and impressive personalities.
We have also worked out the following major reasons why we should impart music education to our children.
1. Music sharpens the brain and improves language and reasoning
The brain of the children who learn music lessons and practice them quite often has to work consistently, coordinating and collaborating at various levels with other parts of the body. This sharpens their brain particularly its areas of language and reasoning and such children groom with a better understanding of the things all around. Music is known to develop the left side of the brain and the wording of the songs gets imprinted on the growing minds, resulting in a better language and reasoning.
2. Learning music helps students in their studies
Students have to learn and memorize a lot of lessons and tests at their schools. It becomes quite easy for them to do so if they are in a regular practice of learning and playing different kinds of musical instruments. This practice helps them master their memorization and improves their imagination, creative thinking, spatial intelligence, and intellectual curiosity. This is because, while playing music, they are constantly using their mind and memory which keep sharpening themselves and help them throughout their studies and beyond as well.
Besides, keeping a frequent touch with music also polishes the auditory skills of the students and they pick meaningful, emotional, informative elements from their lectures at school and a lot of predictable patterns from the other voices in their surroundings.
3. Music education polishes the social behavior of children
Several musical programs require teamwork and close collaboration among the musicians in a band or orchestra. There is also required a supreme level of discipline while working together and playing various instruments. These senses of teamwork, collaboration, and discipline polish their social behavior in their practical life later on. Moreover, learning and playing music before large gatherings also help kids overcome their fear and anxiety and fill them with self-confidence and boldness. As a result, they become better able to take risks in life and deal the things more maturely than otherwise.
4. Musical notes and tones help kids relax and drive away stress
Kids often have to face hardships in their studies, sports, and other social activities. Their exertion and poor performance at times make them tensed, worried and stressed. Under these feelings, when they come to learn and play music, they not only enjoy themselves with pleasant songs but also feel much relaxed after this jubilant activity. They at once become stress-free and begin to participate in other activities with full vigor and potential.
5. Having music education helps groom the overall personality of the kids
Learning to play several musical instruments and practicing them regularly is not so easy as to be performed by every kid. So, if a child makes hard efforts to learn and play several musical instruments, his near and dear ones along with the general public appreciate him a lot and treat him respectfully and differently. All this gives him a great sense of achievement and he feels proud of himself. His self-esteem is raised to a level where it is recognized by all. It also boosts his confidence in his abilities and he thinks that he is doing great. Consequently, he succeeds in grooming himself into an adult with a very charming and dashing personality that everyone feels envious of.
Thus we see that imparting music education to our children is very much important in their practical life.
