are born as average and not as geniuses. The only reason why certain
people are called geniuses is because they learn at a faster pace than
others. Everyone can learn, but the speed at which one learns something
is different for different people. Apparently, if you allow your
child to play an instrument or take him to singing lessons, it helps to
increase the speed at which he learns. If you as a parent are always
trying to find out ways to improve your child's intelligence, this is one
easy way that your child will improve. Music will increase the speed
at which your child can solve problems because learning how to play an
instrument or sing makes your child think and helps them to be more coordinated.
While learning an instrument, your child uses the same abstract reasoning
skills that he uses in maths. There are even some schools in the
US that make music a required part of the curriculum to help their students
improve their scholastic scores.
The Social Effects of Music
Playing an instrument or singing will help your child gain confidence. He will feel proud of himself that he can sing or play an instrument. Music will also help him to be more outgoing because he might want to perform for his family members or friends. The most important thing is that music will keep your child busy and let him be involved with something that is educational instead of just sitting in front of the television. Lastly, since music is something that is enjoyable and soothing, it will help to relieve your child's stress during school days.
As you can
see music has many positive effects on your child. Make music a part
of your child's life, and make it a part of your life too!!
