Infant Care Music Education
When infants experience a rhythmic pattern in music, it improves their ability to make predictions about rhythmic patterns in speech!
A) Rhythmic Patterns
The timing of syllables helps infants define one speech sound from another and understand what someone is saying.
FUN FACT! It's the ability to identify differences in speech sounds that helps infants learn to speak
B) Babies Recognize Patterns
Infants experience a complex world OF sounds, lights & sensations. Therefore, the baby's job is to recognise the pattern of activity that is presented to them.
FUN FACT! Pattern perception is an important cognitive skill. improving that skill early may have long-lasting effects on an infant's learning.
Music helps with brain development! Exposing your baby to basic music activities help your baby learn the language faster.
A) How Music Helps
Babies tune into the voices of their parents and start to produce a wide variety of sounds 'oos, ahhs, shrieks, yells' that follows the cadence & patterns of speech similar to music
B) Exposure To Music
Introducing your baby to musical concepts, whether:
- Letting him pound a drum
Will develop the same areas of the brain that are needed to master a language.
