Spending time singing and playing with musical instruments, or painting a masterpiece with your child seems like a fun time spent together, but did you know music and art education can significantly increase your child’s development? Research shows the positive effects music and art has on student’s learning and developmental skills. Making music and creating art influences a student’s motor, language, social, cognitive, and academic performance when attending a high-quality early childhood preschool.
This summer, preschool and kindergarten children have the opportunity to increase their motor and cognitive skills while having fun at Adams Traditional Summer Camp. Pre-k and kindergarten students can spend their summer days enjoying arts, crafts, music, and much more. Learn more about Adams Traditional Summer Camp HERE. We would love to have your child join us for a fun summer of learning and play!
Playing Music and Creating Art at Our Early Childhood Preschool is a Pretty Big Deal
Research illustrates the many ways music and art facilitate deeper learning in all school subjects. Playing with musical instruments, singing, and creating arts and crafts of all kinds provides a rich experience that benefits students’ as they progress into formal learning. Learning songs, using basic rhythm instruments, or creating artwork involves using multiple skillsets simultaneously. Neuroscience studies indicate the brain of a musician, even a young one, works very differently than the brain of a non-musician. When involved in music and art education, students experience more substantial neural activity growth, making their brains work even harder and benefitting all aspects of their development.
Ellen Winner, professor of psychology at Boston College, and Gottfried Schlaug, professor of neurology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School, led a study that found changes in the brain images of children involved in weekly music instruction and practice. The students in the study who received music instruction had improved sound discrimination and fine motor tasks, and brain imaging showed changes to the networks in the brain associated with those abilities, according to the Dana Foundation, a private philanthropic organization that supports brain research. Music and art education are related to spatial intelligence, improved test scores, and even an increased IQ, even when introduced through the beginning skills of early learners.
