Here is another study pointing to the importance of recognizing babies are musical. It is my opinion what we cultivate from the earliest ages and stages is what lasts into childhood and later adulthood. That is why something like Kindermusik is so valuable to both parent and child. The parent is given the tools to cultivate a sophisticated understanding and desire to express in a musical way. Even if they are not musical as an adult, Kindermusik CD’s and activity books, literature books and instruments allow the parent to lead the way. It is such an exciting and productive process. Read the article here.  Robin Nixon calls attention to a quote from the article,  by Henkjan Honing of the University of Amsterdam assistant researcher in the study.  “While spoken language can take more than a year to develop, “music is one of the earliest things parents have with their children,” Honing said.” Nixon surmises “scientists have shown, at birth we already have sophisticated methods for interpreting the world.” Rhythm, steady beat, musical interpretation; all impact how successfully your child learns. Won’t you help your child reach their musical, intellectual and athletic potential and sign up for Kindermusik today?!
