Every child learns the alphabets at an early age so that in future he can read. When
he reads books and uses the information on the Internet, he learns much more and
much faster in life than he would have if he had remained illiterate. Today we talk
about the benefits of musical language and about why your child needs to learn music
A baby first learns letters, then syllables. Then he learns to join syllables into
words, and words into sentences. In a short time the child is able to read a short
paragraph or poem independently. The more the toddler practices his skills, the faster
his reading improves. Sooner or later, there comes a time when he reads thick books
with big interest and attention.
Having learned to read, man does not sigh if he sees books. Now he is busy with another
goal - to find the information that he is interested in at the moment. Yes, dear
readers, we all live in the information century and being literate in this century
Now let's turn our attention to the musicians. I'm sure you know that they have books
very different from the ordinary and which can be read only by people with musical
training. These books have few words, but a lot of musical symbols.
Regular people seem to think that it is very difficult to learn music notes. But
the fact is that it is the same as learning the alphabets and letters. First, the
children learn music notes names and their location in the STAF (like a place in
the alphabet). Then they learn how to fold those notes into "syllables" (meter) phrases
and sentences, and then they can start to read music on their own!
Many parents are aware of the benefits of music education for children, but unfortunately
they don’t know what specifically they would like their child to learn from the music
teachers. Most of the time they simply say: "Let him learn to play a little for himself."
Whether or not this phrase speaks of your ultimate goal, I would not recommend that
you go to simply any music teacher to help your child learn music notes and further.
Find the one who knows his art very well and who’s able to easily read any musical
text without prior preparation. Many teachers can read music books with notations
fluently, but I can assure you that not all teachers possess this ability and not
everybody can help your child learn music notes easily. Typically, students of the
not-so-skilled teachers learn the course material by training for a certain amount
of time. But if you ask them to play a piece that they learned long ago and repeated
for a few months, their performance will upset you, because they have almost forgotten
Find the right teacher to help your child learn music notes fluently. With this skill,
your child will be able to "read" any piece of music and will actually enjoy the
fact that he can. He’ll be pleased to entertain people close to him with this ability
throughout his life.
