Pink Piggies Lesson #13
As we approach the end of the semester, I just wanted to remind you that you can keep the fun going at home until our next class. Continue to use this semester’s materials (album, workbook, instrument activities you learned). Your child will think you are just having fun, but you will actually be strengthening his newly acquired musical skills!
Little brains are wired for repetition. Your child may have found a favorite activity they insist on repeating again and again. They probably think they are just having fun, but this innate desire for repetition is really their brain’s way of helping them process and master skills. When engaged in an activity, the brain and body send electrical signals back and forth along the nerve fibres The more practice the nervous system has at receiving and sending messages, the more efficiently it operates and the more effectively a child acquires a skill. So, as you keep singing and moving to the music, you are watching the growth of a musician!
