The kid wakes up for music

Music - the Intermediary between Life of Mind and Life of Feelings
Ludwig Van Beethoven

is known Long ago that music influences both cerebral hemispheres at once. Also it is perceived and at the conscious level, and on unconscious. Music is capable to adjust of a positive harmony, to reduce a psychoemotional pressure. Some scientists note beneficial influence of music on memory development. Knowing it, there is a wish to give as much as possible to time to musical occupations. But at the same time it is important to consider age of the child.

When to acquaint the kid with music?

“Music transfers us from the sphere of visibility - to the sphere of feelings,
from area of subject images - to the area of incorporeal sounds,
from a sight kingdom in a hearing kingdom.“ R. M. Chumichev`s
Musical development begins

with acquaintance to the huge world of sounds, rhythms and melodies.

Listening of music can be begun with

practically with the birth. If in the first months of life the kid the most part of time sleeps, then its music consists of quiet melodious songs. It not only various lullabies and sounds of the nature, but also classical, national and tool works.


Having elected the author and the direction of music, surely listen to all works. Whether everything they cause in you pleasant emotions? Whether there is no rhythm pulsing, straining hearing causing alarm or fear?

Then needs to select quieter, pacifying “lulling“ music and rhythmical fervent compositions in separate groups. It is necessary for division of time of a dream and wakefulness.

Music should not sound constantly. The child needs to stay in silence, to pay attention to other sounds surrounding it, it is simple to have a rest. Quiet music can be put for the aid to the kid when dream time approaches. Under more rhythmical music spread the kid on a tummy, do exercises, play “pat-a-cake“. Cheerful, vigorous compositions will set an excellent spirit to your occupations.

the Task of parents at this stage - to create at the child a positive spirit on occupations. Very much it was pleasant to my daughter when I took her on hands, we together were slightly turned, I swung it on hands under music, lifted and lowered, pressed to myself. Such emotional proximity gives to the child great pleasure. So there is an idea of music, as about necessary pleasant addition of life.

During this early period the child does not empathize music yet. Music just is pleasant to the child or it is not pleasant, he fades, listens attentively to sounds, quickens, rejoices, hops, makes melodious sounds - as if tries to sing along. Gradually the child begins to distinguish the sound height, its timbre, force... Gradually there are individual preferences.

What to listen to?

the Choice of pieces of music is huge

. Sometimes it seems that it is possible just to be lost in such flow of information. But it is worth being engaged in selection of the compositions suitable for you. Begin with what is pleasant to you. We with the daughter listened also to “Seasons“ of Vivaldi, and “The small night serenade“ of Mozart, were turned under the well-known waltzes of Tchaikovsky. And here with the Russian folk music at us somehow it did not develop. The daughter did not like performance of songs therefore listening was cancelled. But the girl with pleasure listened to songs performed by V. Tolkunova.

to you should offering

to the kid several options of various execution of work, thus you will pick up the most suitable, well influencing the child music.

Experts claim that it is useful for child to listen to melodies with words, performance of songs by high pitched female voices.

we Move under music

I here the kid grew up, he already strong stands on feet. Means, time to pass to the following stage of musical occupations - to the movement under music and singing came. At early age of the movement under music well accustom children to group. They imitate each other, it becomes interesting to them. But it is possible to dance both with mother, and with the father.

We with the daughter began to dance

at the age of about a year under songs from animated films. There was it houses under rhythmical cheerful music. If music was with words - sang along. The daughter seldom took an initiative in musical occupations. And I had to turn on the music and most to begin dance. At first she looked narrowly, and then too began to hop. With singing also: I sang along, and she was silent in the beginning. By the end of a song already purred, and following - sang.

At early age of the movement of the child are not coordinated by

among themselves. That is legs and hands can not always move at the same time in dance. This property of age. We learned several simple exercises then the daughter began to improvise in dance.

of the Marshal For a start can simply “mark time“. And it is so difficult to child to concentrate on one kind of activity. You march and serially highly lift one leg, another. The child sometimes looks, sometimes tries to repeat. Most likely, at once at it nothing will turn out. The movement needs to be shown over and over again and to suggest to repeat cheerfully. And already the kid raises legs, and after a while you already begin to march around.

Spring. to Sit down and rise, similar to a spring. Usually children like this movement.

Walking on fingers. This exercise is very useful for muscles of legs. Exercise needs to be done without footwear and it is desirable without socks.

of the Movement by hands. As soon as mastered the movements by legs, it is necessary “to connect“ hands. It is possible to apply various objects: tags, kerchiefs, small soft toys. Children very much like to wave a tag or a kerchief under music, at the same time manufacturing something legs.

Ya I do not break training in the movements into separate elements. We serially try to carry out, one, other elements. Let`s turn round and round, we will run about, we will take toys, we resemble on fingers, we will lift handles up or we will part aside, we will sing.

Main - that occupation brought also to you, and the kid pleasure.

Often refusal of the child of musical occupations does not mean absence of hearing or knacks at all. The kid can just not know how it is cheerfully possible to dance together with mother, the sister or favourite long-eared hare, to swing a tag under music, to beat the drum in a step of a cheerful melody. Prompt to the child how to make friends with music. Have patience if to the kid it is difficult. And you will notice soon that the child listens attentively to words of songs. Support the child, tell: “Well done! Everything is correct“. Suggest to sing the pleasant song together. The child should not be afraid of new words.

Then you for certain will notice interest of the child in musical animated films and transfers. Children usually begin to dance, having seen as they sing and dance on the TV. Do not confuse and do not distract the child, do not give to him advice... Just to a postoyta aside.
