The Importance of Music for Children

Music NotesRecently someone recommended a great article to me about the importance of music in the overall development of children. Most of what is in the article I have read before but it was a great reminder of how important music and the arts are to a child’s physical, emotional, and spiritual development. Research has shown for some time the connectedness of music with increased math and science scores. This article reiterates that point along with many others.

Please check out this article by Jackie Silberg entitled The Importance of Music for Children. It has some great information plus ideas for utilizing music in everyday life. Parents I especially encourage you to read this article.

Children’s Music at EHBC

The preschool and children’s choirs meet each Wednesday night from 5:45 – 6:30 p.m. Each choir not only sings songs we can share in worship, but also experience foundational musical activities including steady beat, playing instruments, music theory and more. All of which are presented in a fun and creative way.
