Rock Dojo Teaches Your Kids The Art Of Rock And Much More
Here at the Rock Dojo, we’re eager to share our passion for music and the art of rock n’ roll with children aged 6-12 who have taken an interest in the guitar. Did you know, though, that learning to play cool tunes isn’t all your child can learn when they incorporate music education into their lives?
5 Benefits Of Music Education
Music education, especially early music education, can have incredible benefits on children’s development in a number of different ways! The Rock Dojo team is eager to help your kids not only rock the guitar – but rock improved skills with the help of music education!
Improved Language Skills
One benefit of growing up in a musically rich environment is that it helps develop young kids’ language skills faster. Specifically, music education helps develop the left side of the brain – the part of the brain that involves the processing of language. This means not only that your child will grasp their own native language sooner but also that they have a chance of learning how to speak a second language more quickly as well.
Improved Math Skills
Music involves math. Consider learning to read music. Musicians need to learn to read quarter notes, half notes, and whole notes. For a young child, this could be their first exposure to fractions. As they count beats and learn to read music, their math skills will naturally improve.
Improved Testing Ability
Want to give your children an advantage when testing time comes? Kids who have early musical education do better on tests. In elementary schools with good music education, the students performed better both on the language and math sections of standardized tests.
Do you ever wish your kids would listen to you more? While there is no guaranteed cure to making your children listen to what you’re saying, you can help make sure that they’re processing what they’re hearing. Music education helps auditory development in the brain.
Every parent wants their child to feel confident in themselves. Mastering the guitar can actually help your children improve their self-esteem. Working towards a common goal with others and feeling as though they are heard and appreciated makes it easier for them to have good self-esteem.
