Music encourages dance and movement, rhythm and timing which build motor skills.

A child dancing is a happy child without inhibitions!

Music helps enrich children’s language, literacy, motor skills, social and cultural growth. It enables them to be creative and assists in the development of listening skills and concentration while helping them to understand complex concepts such as harmony and melody.

Exposing children to music during early development allows them to recognise and enjoy sounds, and range of instruments.
