Music and Language Skills

Follow this link to view a 3 minute video showing some segments from a Kindermusik for the Young Child class.  Also, more importantly some independent research showing how the early study of music impacts the development of language.

Early music education is definitely very important for our little ones.  Music training has a pervasive effect on the nervous system.  Music is a fundamental part of education.  If you are fortunate to be able to study this privately this is magnificent.  I hope our schools here continue to value the importance of music education.  I wish it stood alongside Maths and English in primary schools rather than being just something special you went to another room for.  For its best effect music education needs incorporation in the classroom into everything children do.
