A study from the University at Buffalo indicates that music
activities promote oral language, literacy, and reading readiness.
“Music is one way that children can learn rhythm and rhyme of
text, be exposed to new vocabulary and learn to discriminate a
variety of sounds,” states on eof the researchers. – See more at:
In my own experience, this has been proven time and time again.
Whether they’re singing (using oral language), playing rhythm
instruments and exploring other, nontraditional soundmakers
(experiencing a variety of sounds) or moving to music (responding
expressively to sound), children’s language skills and aural
understanding are improving. Music and literacy go hand in hand.
