QI plan to have my children take music lessons when they are older. Why should I bother with a music class when they are so young?

AInstinctively, we know that music belongs in the life of young children: young children are ready for music, they are in their critical period for developing a good foundation in music, and musical potential is often lost if it is not nurtured and maintained in these early years. Anyone who works with young children, even infants - knows how eager and receptive they are to appropriate musical experiences. Additionally, recent brain research has pointed to non-musical crossover benefits of early music study and how important early music exposure is to a baby's normal development. In a Kindermusik class, parent-child interaction is fostered, socialisation with other children is encouraged, fine motor and gross motor development is enhanced, and language skills flourish. Kindermusik helps each child develop musically at the right time and in the right way, and a Kindermusik graduate has a solid foundation and a giant head-start when they move to private instrumental, voice or even dance lessons.
