Music and Arts Academy
Music gives an important meaning to real life in a cultivable manner, especially the enlightenment of children's music. First of all people should understand the children's physiological and psychological development law, in order to better let music play a role in its growth. Music is an art form. Through music activities, it can enhance children's memory, imagination and creativity, and improve children's auditory discrimination ability and sensitivity. Incorporating certain musical enlightenment education into children's study and life is of great significance for stabilizing children's emotions, developing children's intelligence, and enabling them to grow up in a healthy and harmonious manner. If you can make good use of music education at an appropriate age, it will have a multiplier effect on children's intellectual development.
The early education of music can be traced back to infancy, which can be roughly divided into 3 stages:
-0-1 years old infant period
Children's music enlightenment education is conducive to improving the baby's emotional intelligence. For example, infants recognize the melody of a song long before they understand the words. Quiet, background music can be soothing for infants, especially at sleep time. Loud background music may overstimulate an infant by raising the noise level of the room. Sing simple, short songs to infants. Try making up one or two lines about bathing, dressing, or eating to sing to them while you do these activities.
-2-3 years old Toddler period
Children's music education helps to improve the creativity and imagination of babies.
Toddlers love to dance and move to music. The key to toddler music is repetition, which encourages language and memorization. Silly songs make toddlers laugh. Try singing a familiar song and inserting a silly word in the place of the correct word, like “Mary had a little spider” instead of lamb. Let children reproduce rhythms by clapping or tapping objects.
4-6 years old preschool period
Preschoolers enjoy singing just to be singing. They aren’t self-conscious about their ability and most are eager to let their voices roar. They like songs that repeat words and melodies, use rhythms with a definite beat, and ask them to do things. Preschool children enjoy nursery rhymes and songs about familiar things like toys, animals, play activities, and people. They also like finger plays and nonsense rhymes with or without musical accompaniment.
Primarily, most young school-age children are intrigued by kids’ singalong songs that involve counting, spelling, or remembering a sequence of events. School-age children begin expressing their likes and dislikes of different types of music. They may express an interest in music education, such as music lessons for kids. On the other hand, tennagers may use musical experiences to form friendships and to set themselves apart from parents and younger kids. They often want to hang out and listen to music after school with a group of friends. Remember those days of basement and garage bands? Teens often have a strong interest in taking music lessons or playing in a band.
