Have you noticed how kids create music even if they don’t have musical toys to hand – when they were young my own children loved to turn all the saucepans upside down on the kitchen floor and bang them with chopsticks to create a tune! 

Parents know instinctively what the scientists now tell us to be true; that young children thrive on music and that it is essential in early childhood development to make the most of their potential in this area. The popularity of singing and music groups for children are evidence of that, I took both my children to our local Jo Jingles group every week and they loved the weekly classes. 

Quite apart from being a good deal of fun to bang, tinkle and twang; being musical from an early age helps a child’s brain make important connections that are now thought to give benefits such as better language development, enhanced numerical ability, development of spatial reasoning and enhanced personal and social development too. 

There is evidence of music aiding memory development in very young children, a perfect example is the repetitive action songs so loved by the very young. Playing with musical toy instruments such as percussion toys and wooden instruments encourage children to practice and develop their musical talents from an early age and are essential educational toys.
