Music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. When children participate in music and movement activities in a group, they also develop and refine their social skills. They learn to work as a team, they learn to share and they learn how to be creative in a group environment. Their fine motor skills and gross motor skills will be developed. Maintaining their balance and coordination will improve. Expressing emotions will be a cake-walk once they begin to dance and sing.
