Music plays an important role in development of kids. They express themselves using music. Infants start bouncing for music and at the age of preschooler, kids start expressing themselves with self-composed songs while they play. As a mom of a preschool kid, I experience all these and I find my kid’s attachment for music. This is why I always like to surround him with musical instruments and good music which can help the kid to grow with many benefits of music.
