The Benefits of Music

The Benefits of Music

Kids who grow up hearing music, singing songs, and moving to the beat are enjoying what experts call "a rich sensory environment." That's just a fancy way of saying they're exposed to a wide variety of tastes, smells, textures, colors, and sounds. And researchers believe this forges more pathways between the cells in their brains.

Musical experiences are an important way to help create these pathways, also called neural connections. And while listening to music is certainly key to creating them, it's when kids actively participate in music that they make the strongest connections.

Research shows that kids who are actively involved in music (who play it or sing it regularly):

* do better in reading and math when they start school
* are better able to focus and control their bodies
* play better with others and have higher self-esteem

Ukraine's got talent very cute children performance (english subtitles)

break dance baby

Happy mid-weak everyone..

I know the title for this post is very extreme and i bet you will just feel the same way when the first time i saw this very little kids doing break dance video. Yup, you reading me just right. BREAK DANCE in a very early age. I had seen Connie Talbot, who was 6 years old, singing beautifully and i can tell that she is just so lovely both in her persona and the way she took the audience attention in Britain Got Talent Show. But, i never seen something like this, i mean someone in the early age, 6 years old or less, to be more specific.

So as u enjoying yourself watching this lil' buddy doing his stunt and break dancing, my advice, don't try this with your own child. i mean some things we just let the pro do the work, right?

and again, this is something to do with developing physical skills at the early age. I can see the parents (i think his father) was doing a great job here. Some of the comment for this video saying something that sound like this : "this was the result when we, as a parents spending a lot of time with our kids". i am 100% agree with this. it was obviously clear that parents, who spend more times with their children, together they'll dig deeper in their relationship, and who knows, we just about to find out the hidden abilities about them. of course, not necessarily doing some extreme stuff like the kids in this video though. Human was born with multiple intelligence. Let us explore it.

enjoy the stunt!
