Nowadays, parents are encouraged to communicate and interact with their baby via the medium of music. Countless studies have proven that babies and toddlers who were exposed to music, singing and musical interaction enjoyed huge psychological and personality benefits over those that went without.
Learning patterns are enhanced as is the actual speed of learning, with small babies using the experience to differentiate between frequencies and to recognise voice patterns, such as that of the mother.
Music also helps to establish the child's individual sense of rhythm and with this comes the understanding of slow comforting rhythms or high speed energetic ones. In this way music and rhythm can be used to stimulate mood changes in the child, perfectly illustrated when a mother softly rocks and quietly sings her baby to sleep.
Many crèche and kindergarten classes include musical stimulation and interaction as part of the early learning process and Nevada Music has a wide range of baby and toddler's musical gifts and toys that can encourage and enhance the learning experience.
