Not all children have the opportunity to participate in music programs. There are multiple reasons for this, for example financial ones. Some children can feel scared to join because in some cases joining a music program can be perceived as not so easy accessible. There are numerous cognitive benefits when children participate in music education programs including having greater abstract reasoning, better listening skills and improved memory. Practicing in a group has even more benefits. Children feel more included, confident, learn how to take and implement constructive criticism and have better discipline in general.
Music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness, including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. By giving all children the change to practice music in groups, they feel more included and confident. Developing valuable mental and physical assets that are useful for the rest of their lives. Music programs given by experts at local schools gives children the chance to practice and develop their passion for music that for some will remain a passion for the rest of their lives.
