Early Childhood Music Educator

The physical benefits of early childhood music are outstanding. Motor skills can be improved through improvisational dancing and handling of the instruments. Vocal and speech development improve through singing while listening skills and concentration improve with aural training. The old-fashioned goals of sharing and cooperation are reinforced with the sharing of instruments and encouragement of other students.
The most important benefit, however, is the proven positive effects music has on brain development. This has been thoroughly researched and documented and is most crucial during the first six years, when the most important brain development takes place. NPR radio broadcast a program called Gray Matters: Music and the Brain, which included Dr. Gordon Shaw, who first described the Mozart Effect.
