Music Benefits Math
Did you know that toddler music classes can have an impact on early math development? Here are three benefits sited by Kindermusik International:
Spatial awareness refers to an individual's ability to recognize himself in space - to be aware of the objects around him and his relationship to those objects. This type of reasoning seems to develop more quickly for children who are involved in music classes.
Pattern recognition is another area where children can develop more quickly when involved in toddler music classes. And no wonder! Listening to music is a great workout for the brain! Our minds need to recognize and organize the rhythms and melodies to fully enjoy the music. And we take it a step further when we clap to a steady beat, dance along to the rhythm or use our instruments to play along!
Counting by rote requires repetition. There are many songs in the Kindermusik curriculum that make the memorization of numbers fun. For example, in our Time for Lunch unit, your toddlers learn to count to eight as they sing One Potato, Two Potato while creating an imaginary pot of yummy soup!
Music and math seem to go hand in hand - especially in the toddler music class. If you haven't already, contact us and schedule your free Kindermusik preview class!

Music provides so many benefits for youngsters. The calming lullabies on these digital downloads or DVDs may calm your child and lull them into sleep, while the upbeat songs will provide a great opportunity for dancing, singing and using their boundless amounts of energy - all in the safety of your playroom! Music has also been found to increase children's brain development in many areas, including Cognitive Development, Emotional/Social Interaction, Physical Development, and Language Acquisition.
