Benefits of music for children

Impact of Music on a Child

A study at the University of Southern California’s Brain and Creativity Institute (in the year 2016) discovered various advantages of music such as accelerated brain development, language acquisition skills & reading skills in children.

Through this blog post, we are going to discuss the various benefits of singing & listening to music for children. So, without any further ado, let’s get started.

1) Benefits of singing 

In this section, we will be discussing various benefits that singing has on children. For example: reciting Om for relaxing the mind & singing songs to memorize new words & improve health & auditory memory. 

a) Chanting Om for relaxation

Chanting Om is the perfect example of how music improves mental health. The recitation of Om does not only soothe the young minds of children but also helps them to concentrate for an extended period which is very helpful in their academics.

The combination of recital of Om & breathing exercises helps to fight off mental health issues such as depression and anxiety, & feel more connected to themselves.

Experiment: If you have a young one at your home, sit together & chant Om with him/her while listening to this video.

b) Vocabulary & Speech Development

i) Vocabulary Development: A very fun and creative way to improve the vocabulary of children is by making them sing songs. The best part of this strategy is that children get exposed to a whole world of new words which they may not even hear in everyday conversations.

ii) Speech Development: Singing involves clear pronunciation of words & sounds. When children try to sing a song they like, they will obviously try their best to imitate the pronunciation of the lyrics. Ultimately, this process contributes greatly toward speech development in children.  

c) Improvement in Health & Memory

Another benefit of music in early childhood is that singing improves the physical as well as emotional development of children. Research has shown that singing improves breathing, & strengthens respiratory muscles in them.

But the benefits of singing do not end there. Listening to the song's lyrics improves auditory memory in children. A very practical and yet common example is when toddlers can remember simple lyrics like “papa finger, papa finger, where are you?”. As time passes, they become capable of memorizing more advanced and complex lyrics.

2) Benefits of listening to music 

In this section, we will be discussing various benefits that listening to music has on children. For example: boosting focus & pain tolerance capacity, & overcoming mental health conditions like anxiety & depression.

a) Music For Studying, Concentration, And Memory

According to researchers studying the relationship between cognitive abilities and music, cognitive functioning can improve in people who listen to gentle background music while performing their tasks. Let's do a fun experiment.

If your family has any children, suggest they study while listening to one of the best study music videos. After some time, ask them how their concentration levels were.

b) Increases pain tolerance capacity

One of the best benefits of listening to music is that it boosts pain tolerance in children. Listening to music releases mood-improving hormones within the body. These hormones are not only capable of improving mood, but also providing relief from pain.

Let's perform a fun experiment here. If you have a child at your home, have a fun workout session with him/her while listening to this workout music video, and notice his/her energy levels.

c) Influence Of Music On Mental Health

Seeing your young ones suffering from mental health issues like anxiety and depression can be quite heartbreaking. These ailments should never be taken lightly, & help like therapy and medical treatment should be provided to children as soon as possible. 

In addition to the necessary treatment, singing & listening to tunes can help to relax the body and mind of children. This is true because listening to music causes Dopamine to be released in the brain. This chemical activates the pleasure centers of our brains. So, a combination of professional treatment & listening to music can be very helpful in relieving the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
