ABSTRACT
By making music and moving together, parent and child, both will discover new ways to express their feelings. If one has ever attended a musical performance with his child, he must have seen the magical effect that music has the sounds and rhythms seem irresistible to little ones, who can't help moving their bodies or singing along. All of the performing arts including music, movement, and drama provide an important means for the spontaneous expression of the rich and deep inner life of a child. Long before speech develops, babies instinctively rock to music, clap their hands, bounce to the beat, and sing along. Studies show that all types of music have a positive effect on children's reading, math, and science skills, as well as their teamwork skills and mastery of spatial relationships.
