Every child is born with an innate musical sense and when nurtured through active music making it flourishes. Scientific studies show that music is not only fun but beneficial for cognitive development. If you can visualize a thick forest with no clear pathways through it- that is the developing brain of a child. Now, visualize the pathway being forged, neurologically, every time you sing or musically interact with your child. The “music channel” is similar to the “language channel” in the sense that it needs to be stimulated and used, every day, in order for it to grow and be strong.
