Lately the children and I have been listening to music particularly good pop songs. Well, mostly pop songs that pass our “standard” meaning no cuss words and other profanity.Yesterday was fun when we discovered karaoke versions of some songs they sing on YouTube. Yey!
Listening to good music has many benefits. Aside from this activity serving as bonding time for the family, they have these benefits:
- helps children listen to different tunes and tempo
- helps children listen to words and increases vocabulary
- encourages children to be more expressive
- stimulates the mind to be more active
- relieves stress and relaxes the mind
- encourages children
- for religious and soulful music, these not just uplift the spirit but bring inner peace
- music help people socialize
- for those who love to dance, music is the non-chemical high that can help them express themselves through movements
I’m sure there are a lot more benefits that I haven’t touched regarding the benefits of listening to good music.
It’s no wonder there are a lot of people who love music especially those who write wonderful songs that make symbol barcode scanner go beeping with their sales. Yes, it’s a ka-ching ka-ching industry for those who have real (and auto-tuned) talent.
