  Music plays an important role in the development of children from the time they are born. When children actively participate in music, they make the strongest connections and experience a rich sensory environment.

Intellectual Development

  Music helps children to recognize patterns. This ability will help children develop their math, science and reading skills.

Physical Development

  While doing yoga, children develop their motor skills, coordination and balance through the process of stretching, breathing and meditation.

Self-Expression

  Music is a great way to allow children to express themselves. When children make their own music and dances, they will have the opportunity to develop their own style and interests.

Listening Skills

  Children are required to listen carefully to instructions, words and melodies while listening to music, learning songs, learning to play a musical instrument and learning to dance. This will help them develop strong listening skills and concentration.
