Here at the Mobile Music School, we have been delivering our music for preschools and after schools programmes nationwide. These programmes are suited to both after school, and preschool facilities, and aim to introduce music in a fun way to children! Our music for preschools programmes explore the sounds of every-day life, the sounds of the orchestra and the sounds of voices. The children learn action songs and music notation, perform on percussion instruments, and have lots of fun playing a range of musical games. There are so many benefits to these music for preschools and after school programmes! Read on to find out five amazing benefits to enrolling children in music for preschools/after schools.
Music For Preschools and After Schools- 5 Amazing Benefits!
Development of motor skills.
Moving and dancing to music helps children build motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression. Playing instruments also helps children build motor and co-ordination skills. Motor skills are skills that enable the movements and tasks we do on a daily basis, and its really important that children develop these skills from a young age.
2. Setting a foundation of musical ability.
Introducing children to the world of music from such an early age gives them a solid foundation of musical ability for life. Children who take part in music for preschool programmes are more likely to play an instrument later on in life. These children will also develop an appreciation and understanding of music early on. This appreciation for music will carry on through to their adult life as well.
3. Developing social and emotional skills.
In our music for preschools programmes, students are required to work as a team. The social interaction and teamwork elements of these programmed develop trust in self, others, and social and emotional skills. Working as an ensemble can forage friendships, teach children how to interact with others, and how to express themselves.
4. Developing high self esteem and confidence.
Another great benefit of music for preschools is that it builds confidence at an early age. It is hard to be a shy person when you get in front of a group regularly to play music. As children progress and learn to play music, they become more and more confident in groups of people. This confidence will benefit children for the rest of their lives.
The most important benefit of music for preschools and after schools, is simply that it is a lot of fun. Children always enjoy themselves during the classes, and the students having fun and enjoying themselves are the core principles of our classes.
