What are the Benefits of Our Music Class Program in West Chester?
Many educators and researchers believe that music classes help young children develop language and reading skills faster than those who do not have exposure to music training. Studies are optimistic, albeit inconclusive, but if you would like to read more about this, our blog about the benefits of music on reading may help.
Create a Fun Social Environment With Your Child
If you have a toddler or preschooler, it can be challenging to find opportunities for them to socialize. Furthermore, public spaces (like the playground) can be awkward – you may not feel like approaching new families on a daily basis.
A music class for young children, like our Music Together sessions, removes the tension. You will enjoy playing and music-making with your child, and you’ll be in a shared environment with families in the exact same phase of life.
Your child will make friends, learn to share, and enjoy teamwork with peers. Parents at our Music Together sessions enjoy experiencing the class together, and many enjoy chatting and becoming friends as well. If you aren’t sure if a group class is a great fit for you, please get in touch! We would love to welcome you to the studio so you can experience a class for yourself.
Foster a Love For Music
Many children first experience music when they are enrolled in private piano lessons. There is nothing wrong with this, but there is the risk of piano (and music in general) turning into a chore. After all, it’s a learning experience, not a social one. Furthermore, they receive “homework” and practice assignments. Piano lessons have amazing benefits for kids, but if the instruction is too rigid, they may never learn to genuinely love music.
Our music classes allow children to experience fun music, move to the rhythm, and play with various instruments like drums and rhythm sticks. They will learn to count and match pitches, and they will become comfortable with singing – a fundamental hallmark of good instrumentalists.
After your child has experienced music as a fun and impactful medium, they are more likely to want to continue developing via private music lessons. This will make them more successful in piano, voice, guitar, or any other private instruction format.
Build Confidence in Your Child
The confidence-building properties of music instruction has been well documented over the past several decades, but this can start even at an early age. Your child will become comfortable meeting others, speaking and singing in front of a group, and working with peers towards a shared goal. Shy kids and outgoing children alike enjoy these classes, and all become more comfortable with one another after just a few sessions.
