One of the greatest authors of all time, Hans Christian Andersen, once said “Where words fail, music speaks.” Music is the universal language that holds the incredible power to unite, teach and communicate with anyone and everyone! There have been many studies that suggest that music is important to the development of children. Here at Free Range Designs, we have a whole range of outdoor musical instruments, so to celebrate our collection, we’ll explore the role music plays in child development.
Studies have shown that exposure to music and music lessons at a young age can affect the way the brain develops, as it stimulates the parts of the brain that are related to reading, maths and emotional development. It is also thought to improve memory as it stimulates different patterns of brain development.
When children are making music together, they are able to interact with one another. Many of our outdoor instruments are large enough to allow a group to play at the same time, which will encourage communication and team work. Creativity can be a great confidence builder as children can walk away from their creations with a sense of achievement as they have made something they can be proud of.
With all these benefits, it only makes sense to incorporate music into play and learning! Many parents choose to enrol their child into music lessons; however there are other ways to get your child interested in music at a young age. By making things fun, you can encourage your child to engage with and build a passion and understanding of music.
