Parents are always keen to give their kids the best possible start in life.
Mum and dads are told about the importance of offering their kids a healthy diet and getting them to take regular exercise, but may not be familiar with the benefits that music can have on preschool children.
Karen Sherr, managing director at Musicalminis.co.uk, observed memory, movement and literacy are just some of the areas that can be improved through the use of music.
"Learning using music encourages the child's natural attraction to music and helps language development by teaching good speech with the repetition of nursery rhymes and stories," she added.
On top of this, child-friendly musical instruments allow little ones to explore sounds and effects, while at the same time improving their hand-to-eye coordination.
Various studies have found out that musical training has the ability to improve brain function and Nina Kraus, a professor of neurobiology and physiology, said that little ones who take 20 minutes of music lessons every day over the course of a year will make improvements.
