Music is a very important aspect in the development of a child. With its help, we influence the overall development and spiritual world of children. Musical activities develop memory, thinking, imagination and affect emotional well-being.
Music is present in the life of each of us. Under its influence, certain body energy processes are activated.
Of course, now quite a few parents are fond of classical music. Although it would seem, the possibilities for this are now much greater than before, when records with records were rare and expensive.
Well, if a classic influences animals and plants beneficially (if you believe the research, then cows are better served with such music, and flowers grow better), then what about a little man.
Classical melodies have several clear advantages: harmony, nobleness of intonation and amazing richness of shades. This all helps the little man, who is accustomed to listening to such music, to become truly cultural.
By the way, few people know that, for example, Mozart became a composer at precisely 4 years old. Maybe that’s why his works are so loved by children – after all, he has so many cheerful, sunny, childishly tender melodies.
One of my daughter’s favorite musical books is The Nutcracker, which reproduces melodies from the ballet of the same name by PI Tchaikovsky. Sometimes the baby puts on a beautiful dress (or builds it from improvised means) and whirls to the beat of the music.
By the way, from Tchaikovsky I highly recommend you the collection Children’s album. Suppose there are no words in this music, but even their absence does not prevent to imagine what is going on based on the name – Playing horses, Disease dolls, Mom, etc.
The frequency of respiratory movements and heartbeats varies depending on the rhythm, tempo, tone of the piece of music. Thus, rhythmic music can normalize the child’s breathing rhythm, pulse, pressure, relieves muscle tension.
If the sound of the rhythm of the music less the rhythm of the pulse – then the melody will have a relaxing effect on the body, soft rhythms soothe.
With the help of music, you can develop coordination of movements, teach a child to move in the rhythm of music. Often this technique is used during educational music classes.
My daughter really loves the song. And the giraffe has spots, I advise you to find it on any video portal and show it to your child. After several days of training, I am sure that your baby will already clearly depict the lyrics on itself;)
It is also useful for general development to guess the musical instruments, the play of which was present in the melody. You can come up with simple games, pick up musical excerpts that mimic the sound of the sea, the sound of rain, and ask your child to learn the natural phenomena reproduced in music.
And in general, guessing a melody or a cartoon from which she comes is quite an exciting activity for many children.
Singing perfectly develops speech, its clarity and pronunciation. Previously, my daughter had a problem – she spoke too quickly, sometimes even I could not understand her, not to mention others.
In part, singing helped her overcome this problem — she loves to portray her favorite characters (usually, these are the Winx and Dasha-tracker fairies). And after a thorough vocabulary analysis of the lyrics, she began to pronounce all the words quite clearly. As an added bonus, a sense of hearing develops.
A lot of simple songs in English – a song about the alphabet, a small star, etc. Children remember them easily, and knowledge of additional English words would not be superfluous.
As a person with a musical education, I dare to say that music is an integral part of the life of each of us. Of course, there are fans of hard rock, but I prefer the classics and melodies from children’s cartoons.
With the help of music, you can create the necessary atmosphere in the room – quiet for sleeping or fun for an active pastime.
