All parents know that singing or playing music can soothe a baby. And I was no different – I discovered that music has a powerful effect on babies and infants. Introducing your baby to tunes is an easy and enjoyable way to interact with your baby in his/her first year and can help set the stage for lifelong musical development.
Babies have a natural inclination for music as they have for language and sounds. I grew up listening to different kinds of music. Singing comes pretty naturally to me and I’ve noticed that most parents, even those who don’t normally carry a tune, seem to sing to their babies, even if just at bedtime. I still sing to my baby constantly and it has become a bedtime ritual.
Playing music and singing has helped my child to create bond and memories with our favourite songs and inherit our culture. It has helped in improving language, memory, focusing attention and also physical coordination and development. There are days when it rains and only music can heal the both of us.
