As a father, you can't overlook your kids' mental development. While teaching them lessons and showing them how to interact with others is a good start, there are other ways fathers can help their kids grow as well. One of the most overlooked forms of child development is exposure and participation in music.

Learning how to play an instrument is one of the best ways children gain beneficial skills and learn lessons that last them for the rest of their lives. Check out these ten ways that music classes can benefit young kids.

  1. Music lessons are a regular activity that gets kids out of the house.
  2. Learning how to read sheet music may boost their memory.
  3. Playing in concert with others can build teamwork skills.
  4. Kids who play music from an early age may develop higher IQs as adults.
  5. Mastering an instrument builds confidence.
  6. Songwriting can be a form of self-expression for quiet kids.
  7. The dedication required to learn an instrument teaches discipline.
  8. Learning music theory may help language development.
  9. Kids who participate in music classes score higher across the board on standardized tests.
  10. Music can be a great way for you and your kids to connect.

If you haven't considered music classes for your kid before, start thinking about it now.
