Here are some of our recommendations on our “Articles and Research” page

MUSIC AND CHILDREN

Music wires our brains effectively and efficiently. Here’s three ways it works for kids:

1) Helps acquire language skills – increased development, understand and use of complex language.

2) Promotes executive function – Focus, emotions and understanding.

3) Social skills – Trust, Connection, collaboration, Empathy and sharing, etc.

Check out Dr Anita Collins quick video on the subject matter below.
