Children are born with the ability to respond to music and sound. That means that children connect with song and sound before they learn to speak. We use musical experiences to enhance a child's ability to think, learn, reason and create. Musical training physically develops the part of the left side of the brain known to be involved with processing language. Through music young children develop rhythm skills to help perform better academically, they improve their memory, problem solving techniques, understanding and recollection. Dancing, clapping and other choreographed physical movements develop a child's fine and gross motor skills.
