As babies, we were soothed and entertained with music and songs by our parents. Yet, no one realized that sound which has been set to music or rhythm has a stimulating effect on an infant’s developing brain.
The womb is an amazing world of sounds and movement for babies. They can hear their parent’s voices, their mother’s heartbeat and this is where their senses are enhanced and developed. Babies need constant stimulation to develop cognitively, but as they are wrapped up when they come into this world, they don’t experience the same stimulation they did in the womb.
This is where music comes in. As newborn babies can’t really see that well, music is vital to their development. Music lessons are also a natural extension of the wonderful aural experiences a baby feels in the womb. Experiences with music create pathways between the babies’ brain cells, and these early neuron connections will form the basis for a child’s learning in school.
Most importantly, the stress-free environment coupled with the fun and simple activities in our programs will give babies a strong foundation to learn important skills as they grow up.
The Music Factory Babies & Toddlers Program was designed for both babies and adults by a team of dedicated music educators and specialists, to boost infant development and create bonding opportunities for parents and child.
