Listen to THIS! {The Benefits of Kindermusik Active Listening Time}

Active Listening: What It Does for Your Little One

In almost every Kindermusik class, we set aside time for active, focused listening. Why? Simply because we know how important it is for our children to practice listening and for us to support that learning process.

We take a simple sound and walk our children through the steps of how to physically prepare for listening, how to focus cognitively on the sound itself, and finally how to give a developmentally appropriate, social-emotional response. We show our children how we ourselves are listening by the excited, surprised expressions on our faces, and then we encourage them to respond by imitating with their own mouths what they heard.

After all, parents, get this: there’s a big difference between hearing and listening! Hearing is something we do unconsciously. We walk into a store or a restaurant and we hear music, never stopping to listen. In contrast, however, listening is a learned behavior. Therefore, teaching our children to listen at an early age is crucial if we want them to grow up paying attention. This crucial skill will benefit them in school, while listening to instructions, while learning to read, and while learning to play a musical instrument.

In other words … listening creates pure success!

Come to a free introductory class at Kindermusik with 88 Keys, and watch all these developmental benefits explode in your little one! We can’t wait to get in touch with you today to schedule yours.

Warmly,

The team at Kindermusik with 88 Keys Piano
