A study re-discover the benefits of music for infant brain development. Study from McMaster University scientists indicate, to train children to play music from an early age can provide benefits, even before they can walk or talk.
Researchers found that infants aged one year who participate in interactive music class with their parents tend to smile more, communicate better and showed more brain responses to musical excellence.
“Previously, a lot of research on music training focuses only on children who were older,” said Laurel Trainor, as director of the McMaster Institute for Music and the Mind.
“Our results indicate that the baby’s brain may be very plastic (elastic) associated with exposure to music,” said Trainor who published his findings in the scientific journal Developmental Science and Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences ..
In his research, in collaboration with David Gerry Trainor, a music teacher and graduate student, who received an award from the Grammy Foundation in 2008 to study the effects of musical training on the baby. In the latest study, involving selompok Gerry Trainor and baby and parents to participate and spend time during the six months following the music class every week. Music class is divided into two types.
In the first interactive classroom, parents and babies involved in all things about music such as singing and playing musical instruments. Parents and babies are also working together to learn to play percussion instruments, taking turns and singing certain songs.
In other music classes, baby and parents play different types of toys or dolls while listening to music as background accompaniment. Before class begins, all the babies have shown communication and social development of the same.
“Babies who are participating in an interactive music classes along with their parents have the sensitivity to recognize the structure of the tone,” Trainor said.
“The babies are just passive listening to music does not show the same preference. In fact, their brains respond to music differently. Infants of interactive music classes showed greater brain response to the strains of the musical tones,” he said.
Babies of interactive music classes can also stimulate better communication skills at the beginning, as pointed objects that are out of range, or waving. Socially, these babies also smiled more, more easily to be appeased, and a little disturbed when there are things that are considered foreign to them.
“There are many ways for parents to connect with their babies,” said study coordinator, Andrea Unrau.
“The greatest thing about music is that everyone loved it and everyone can learn to play simple interactive music together,” he concluded. Thanks for reading my article on the subject of babies.
