Let the kid see your interest and a benevolent spirit. If you play any musical instrument - it is remarkable! However do not forget also about other tools. For full musical development the child needs to listen to the works sounding differently. It adds to its acoustical experience. Buy the child the simple tape recorder in use and disks with music (the nursery, from animated cartoons or classical).

Sing, only do not distort a melody. The child who is fond of music it will be obligatory for you to sing along. Accompany yourself on children`s musical instruments: tambourine, triangle, hand bells, glockenspiel. It is possible to tell the child about musical instruments by means of simple game.

Who on what plays

Except that this game allows to remember names of musical instruments, it broadens horizons and develops logic of the child. Prepare pictures on which the people playing different musical instruments are represented. Consider them very attentively, pronouncing everything that on pictures is represented. Then move

hands as though you play a drum, and ask: On what I play? If the child did not guess at once, prompt to him. Then represent playing a piano, an accordion, a guitar, harp. If the kid answers all questions truly, change rules a little. Let now him perform your tasks. For example, let will represent as play on a pipe etc.

When you tell fairy tales, verses or sing songs to the child, do it figuratively and with expression. In your voice he has to hear different sounds: loud and silent, rhythmical and chaotic, smooth and abrupt.

Sometimes you say to the kid that you cannot remember how it is necessary to sing or play a musical instrument, allow it to teach you.

If the child learned a new song or picked up some melody on a musical instrument, suggest it to execute it before the grandmother or the father. But do not force it to act if it hesitates. The modest child better let dances and sings alone.

If the kid wants itself, write down him in music school or dancing studio.

Also do not forget to play with the child musical games. There is a set of games: from pritopa, prikhlopa, round dances and songs. Games strongly differ by age opportunities. Absolutely little children can only sing along and clap. And children are more senior are capable of more serious playing music.

Encourage desire to learn something new in the child. It is not less important to teach it to finish the begun business and to overcome difficulties. If you create to the child favorable conditions for his development, then your kid will surely succeed in life.
