Music For Kids: The Power Of Early Childhood Music Education


There is little dispute amongst experts on the importance of music in early childhood. Music can play an important role in early childhood development. In fact, studies suggest that kids who study music from an early age reap educational benefits in both math and reading.

music for kids

Not only can early childhood music education help benefit a child's overall development, but it can also help build emotional and social skills, build cognitive abilities, increase overall language capabilities, improve memory capacity, develop impulse control, and set the foundation for a life-long love of music.

It Is Never Too Early To Learn

It is never too early to enroll a child in music classes or engage a child in musical activities. Children begin learning music as soon as they are born. Infants are able to listen, watch, and experiments with sounds. Eventually, babies sing, chant rhythmically, and experiment with vocal controls. Babies are born ready to explore the rich world of musical sound and the more exposure to music the better they will be at developing their own musical skills and abilities. In fact, the process of musical learning uniquely corresponds to the way in which children learn language.

Music Classes For Kids

Music classes for kids can be a fun, engaging, and positive learning experiences for young children. Structured classes led by specialists can add a new depth to the benefits reaped by children engaging in music at an early age. Music classes actively engage three of the five senses and promote learning within young children in unparalleled ways. Kids participating in music classes may be watching, listening, or clapping, but their mind is far more active than we can readily understand.

Experts are still studying the many ways in which early engagement with music benefits children. However, they all agree that the benefits are very real. Those studying music's benefit on early childhood development agree that musical learning somehow engages all the other forms of learning. This type of learning becomes especially important when you consider that 90 percent of the brain's development happens before the age of five.

The earlier the better with musical education. Newborns, infants, toddlers, and preschoolers are little sponges just waiting to soak up all knowledge, and music is a powerful tool in helping them do just that.

Finding The Right Program

Looking for the right music class for your child? Start by asking friends, family, neighbors, coworkers for their recommendations. Also, check out some local kids boutiques, toy stores, and play centers for information. Many of the programs will let you attend or try out one of the classes for free before signing up. Don't hesitate to ask questions and shop around until you find the right class for you and your child.

Music Activities For kids

Musical activities can benefit kids of all ages. Even if you choose not to enroll your kids in music classes you can still allow your kids to participate in musical activities. Make it a family activity. Music activities for kids can be fun for the whole family and can be a very family-centered, fun way to play. Break out the pots and pans, put on your favorite songs, and dance with your kids. Music is fun!

Find Musical Education That Fits Your Needs

Childhood Music Education

Music School For Kids

Kids who show a great deal of interest in music will benefit from the intensive classes offered in a music school for kids. Schools specifically designed for music education help create a lifelong music lover and help children reach their full musical potential. If you are interested in finding a music school in your area, look for a school with a proven track record of success, check out online reviews, and ask a local musical professional who it is that they recommend.

Private Lessons

Early childhood music education does not necessarily mean that your child must go to a music school for kids. Private lessons provide a reasonable option for many children. Consider what type of lessons you would like to give your child and what sort of instrument that you would like for your child to play. A number of factors should be considered in choosing which instrument to play.

Consider the following questions:

● Does your child have an instrument in mind?
● Does your child's temperament match the instrument that she/he wishes to play?
● Can instrument can you afford to buy and maintain?
● What instrument can you listen to for extended periods of practice time?
● Is there a musical style that excites your child?

Any instrument can be a great way to learn, but many experts suggest starting with piano lessons. If you, like many parents, have a child beginning with piano lessons then you will need to first begin by finding great piano teachers in your area. Optimally they should have experience teaching kids piano. Look for established area teachers and read reviews.

Childhood Music Education

Once you have a teacher in your sights, set up a meeting with you and your child. Don't do all the talking for you child during the meeting. You want to make sure that your child and the teacher will be able to work well with one another.

Thanks to the insight provided by Wendy’s Music, a music school in Melbourne, providing a range of music courses for kids of all ages.

Sponsored Video: Nestle KIMY- A #CoolReward for Kids!

I can remember that when I was still a kid, I love to help with the chores from washing dishes to doing the laundry. After every chore, I feel like I have accomplished a lot even if I was only allowed to wash the plates and utensils that I used. Well, that is if I am in the mood of helping but of course, like other kids, sometimes I also feel lazy to help because I prefer to watch my favorite shows, draw or read books.

So, the secret to making me and my brother help is to reward us with something that will encourage us to work like a chocolate, a yummy snack or we will be renting a new VHS tape movie. Oh well, so 90's right? Yup, we always rent many VHS tapes especially when its weekend.

Apparently, the reward system works not just in doing chores but even in doing assignments and studying lessons. Now that I am already a mother, I also use the reward system for my little girl but since she is just four, I use it so she would keep her mess after playing and in encouraging her to do her assignments.

I would tell her that she'd be given an ice cream (which is her favorite) or I will let her watch a movie or whatever deal we end up with. And yes, it works well that way too.

NEW KIMY Choco Popstar

I guess, the reward system is something that kids of all ages have experienced and it is a smart way for parents to motivate the kids to do something. Once they keep their eye on the prize, they'd be able to accomplish something and be rewarded in the end. It is actually a good life lesson, that if we do something good in our life, we will end up happy and we will be able to reach our goals.

When I saw the video of Nestle PH about how a cool mom rewards her kids, it didn't just give me flashbacks of my childhood but it also made me smile knowing that once the kids are looking forward to a prize in the end, they will surely do their tasks really well.

Well, who won't work hard to get that very delicious NEW KIMY Choco Popstar with a 3-layer chocolate? Even I would be motivated because I would also want a bite of the yummy treat with popping candies!

My daughter Bella would love this Popsicle because she loves ice cream so much and eats one like every day! So with the popping surprise when you bite the tip if the New KIMY Choco Popstar, Bella will surely be in all smiles. This treat combines everything she likes- ice cream, popping candy and chocolates! Plus, it also has the right amount of sugar for kids, which will not bother us moms if we give it to them as a reward.

NEW KIMY Choco Popstar

This made me think, why don't you keep two or three NEW KIMY Choco Popstars in the fridge? So that you will not run out of extremely delish rewards for the kids when you need one!

Watch the video here:

Buribox: A Box of Fun and Learning for Kids

Ever since childhood, I always love the books from Adarna books not just because of their lovely illustrations but also because of the moral lessons that we can get from every story. We all know how important all those lessons are.

So, when I learned about the Buribox from Adarna House, I didn't hesitate to jump in and avail of this because I knew this would be an amazing tool to help my daughter Bella develop her skills and learn some more while doing different activities. And I was right.

Buribox

After I ordered my first Buribox, I told Bella that a surprise box will be delivered for her and since then, she had been asking me about it for days! She would always say,"Mommy, is my surprise box coming?" I would tell her to just wait.

After days that it didn't arrive yet, she said, "Mommy, I think the delivery man sent my surprise box to another house. I think it got lost." Lol! She was indeed looking forward to it!

Every time she asks "What is it?" I just tell her it is something fun that she would really love. Again, I was right because when this happy Buribox came, she was indeed very happy especially that she love books and she likes doing different activities.


Buribox

Sorry for the picture though because it was evening and the light was a bit dim. I can't stop Bella from opening the box. So, I needed to take her photos although it was kind of dim.

So, the Buribox I ordered is the Toddler Buribox. But I just realized that I should have bought the ones for Young Readers because the toddler activities and books were just so baby-ish for her. And I feel that she would learn more from the Young Readers Buribox since she can already read. Anyway, at least she liked it.

The box contained hard books, poster paints, clay with molders, crayons, a coloring book and different activities. The first thing she did was play with the clay.

I also find the contents nice and could be a good way to teach Bella to learn Filipino since she speaks English and even sounds funny when she speaks Waray-Waray, our dialect.

Buribox Adarna Books

Overall, she liked the contents of the box and the box as well because of the happy smiling design on it. It is just appropriate since it really made her smile. So, if you are interested to get a Buribox, here are the steps to do it.

1. Go to Buribox website to subscribe.
2. Choose which box you want, the Toddler Buribox (for 3-5 years old) or the Young Reader Buribox (for 6-8 years old) and click "Add to Subscriptions."
3. You will see your order on the upper side that says "Checkout." Each one costs P799 with free shipping in Metro Manila and P150 shipping fee outside MM.
4. After you click "Checkout," you will be redirected to a form that asks you to choose your billing options:
Monthly recurring (₱799)
3 months recurring - Save ₱200! (₱2,199)
6 months recurring - Get 1 month free! (₱3,996)
Then fillout all the needed information for shipping and others.
5. But you need a PayPal account with a linked credit or debit card in order to pay for your order.
6. After paying through PayPal, just wait for your Buribox to arrive.

Toddler Buribox

One good thing about this is that you can just unsubscribe anytime you want. Since I wasn't able to unsubscribe, the next Buribox was charged to my account because this is a monthly box that you can get. Hence, I am looking forward to that one.

So, if you want your kids to experience this box filled with fun activities for learning, then go ahead and avail this Buribox!

Childhood Cancer: A Battle Worth Fighting For Our Little Angels


childhood cancer

Today, we have a guest post about something really heartbreaking that is experienced by some kids around the globe. Yes, this is out of our control but with a simple step and in a simple way, we can make cancer-stricken kids feel special and loved.

The least thing that we want our precious young ones to experience is to get hurt and so our hearts are crushed into pieces when we see them ailing. They don’t deserve the teeniest bit of pain as they are only about to see the world and live it.

But in as much as colds is common, cancer has been too and it’s sad to know that it is. It gives us goose bumps – the Valentine Wigs people in particular and I’m sure you as well. Imagine how vulnerable our little angels are and how much fun it is to enjoy youth. We stand to be ambassadors of hope because we know how much a struggle it is to have to go through so much pain. It isn’t just your child that suffers but you being the parents who only dreamed for the best future for your young one.

At first, we’ll feel betrayed. Who wouldn’t? The big question will always be “Why my child?” But the monstrous Big C knows no exemptions. It’s ruthless. The worst thing that it ever does at most is not giving signs at all. While our little angel disasters are busy chasing fun around, symptoms may be shrugged away by adults thinking that those are one of their “pettiness”. It may be normal for kids telling their mums and dads about a certain headache because they can always complain about anything but taking time to check what’s really going on will help big time. We don’t want any crippling surprise only to find out it’s already the Big C that hit your little love.

But while it’s inevitable, all we can do is be a little bit more sensitive to our children’s pleas. They may not say it all kids that they are but there’s sometimes more to a fever than just chilling, more to flu than just muscle or joint pain. It might already be the nightmare of a Big C.

It’s a battle that might be hard to fight for as you’d think you’re left empty handed after only being able to take your young one to the hospital for treatments and can do nothing to ease the pain in between. Yet it’s a battle worth fighting for. We can only be strong enough for them and inspire them more as much as they do to us.

'My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games' Sneak Peak, Spoilers & Trailers

I love My Little Pony. Of course, Bella likes them too. But she didn't like them when they turned into Esquestria Girls,maybe because she is still young and she wanted to see them as JUST ponies. But then again, I was excited when I first watched their human version. Actually, Bella watched the movie too even if she wasn't very happy about the transformation. I could say, she enjoyed the movie. Guess she realized that her favorite ponies' human versions weren't that bad after all. Lol!

My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games

Excited for the upcoming 'My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games' animated movie? I know you are! If you liked the Equestria Girls and the Rainbow Rocks, for sure, you will love this movie too which will be released on October 13, 2015.



The synopsis of the upcoming movie says, "Canterlot High meets its rival school, Crystal Prep Academy, in a competition that’s a long-standing tradition – The Friendship Games. Sunset Shimmer is tasked with keeping magic out of the games to avoid the appearance of impropriety while she and her friends compete against Crystal Prep’s top students led by someone with an equal amount of interest in Equestrian magic – this world’s TWILIGHT SPARKLE!"

SPOILERS AHEAD! If you want to know the spoilers, and then continue reading, if not, just pre-order your movie.



In this animated movie, Twilight Sparkle will make a necklace that turned her into a monster since it stole the powers of Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Pinkie Pie. Apparently, she is in big trouble and would need some help.

“She didn’t know it would turn her into a monster. But Sunset Shimmer stopped her. And the bad girls from the different school, Crystal Prep, just changed their minds,” according to Yahoo TV.

Crystal Prep Twilight Sparkle will look different here because she will still learn the Magic of Friendship, although she has the same personality as the Twilight we loved from MLP.

The movie is packed with new songs and new characters, as well as awesome new outfits, which will surely make you feel even more excited!

"My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games" premiere on Discovery Family at 8 p.m. on Saturday, September 26. It will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and available for digital download on October 13.

Here is a short sizzle upload by ShoutKids on YouTube:



You can pre-order the movie here:


And if you haven't watched the other MLP: Equestria Girls movies, you can either rent the movies or buy them:

The Magic of Boomerangs

Boomerangs in Australia have many different shapes, and a lot of people just don't realize the variety. For example, not all boomerangs are designed to come back from whence they were thrown. There are non-returning boomerangs, and returning boomerangs. The non-returning boomerangs are usually not what people picture. They've been traditionally called "throwing sticks", and aborigines used them to fell game from a distance. There is a certain practicality to the non-returning boomerang, but in recreation it isn't usually sought. People would rather want their boomerang return to them in the way these innovations magically seem to do. Like two arms of an acute or right angle, returning boomerangs have two wings that pivot about a central point. It takes a little bit of time to learn just the proper method one uses when throwing a boomerang, but once mastered, it will aerodynamically zip through the air in an ovular elliptic, soon returning to its starting point.

If you're going to boomerang in Australia or anywhere else, find a nice wide open space and ensure there aren't any folks around that could get knocked unconscious. As absolutely hilarious as it is to see somebody KO'd by a boomerang, it just isn't practical for either of you. Sometimes, training classes are in order, and working with professional boomerang producers in Australia, you may find they offer such courses. People from across the globe have learned; of the magic boomerangs hold. It is easy to describe what a boomerang does, but the mechanism behind it is fundamentally abstract. This allure is capitalized on by a professional maker of boomerangs. Local to Australia, naturally the best manufacturers will come from there. Craftsmanship is craftsmanship.

When looking for a boomerang, it's a good idea to peruse the shops a little. Try and find one that's got a good range, because there are a lot of great boomerangs in Australia. The most popular offerings are The Admiral, The Hook, and the Conventional Boomerang.  A lot of shops will personalise their boomerangs, and this can be applied individually or in a corporate sense. An exceptionally beautiful boomerang is the aboriginal boomerang. Sometimes, these are decorative pieces, but if made correctly even decorative boomerangs will work their magic.

boomerang

Price ranges from about $11 to $30 AUD. The low end represents your most conventional, basic model of boomerang. Certain patterns can be applied which describe an image as the boomerang flies, but this often costs more. Still, such measures make the boomerang's flight easier to follow visually. You'll be looking at about 20 metres on an $11 boomerang. Personalization will pop that price up by $3 or $4 AUD.

A very interesting boomerang is the hook boomerang, which slants in such a way as to be pleasing to the eye. Their cost is about twice that of the Conventional Boomerang. Meanwhile, the Admiral slowly twirls through the air and has been constructed to specifically withstand higher winds. They look kind of like a horseshoe and go for about $30 AUD. True collectors and those who appreciate craftsmanship will naturally gravitate to the Aboriginal Boomerang. Handcrafted excellence transforms each into a mantelpiece of art with its own unique profundity. No two are the same.

If you're going to boomerang in Australia, you can find all of these offerings at Wycheproof Boomerangs, which is a well-regarded craftsman of high-quality boomerangs tailored to meet the desire of any client. Also, there are exercise and fun to be had with; a boomerang.And shoot, what if there's a petrol apocalypse and you're a nappy-headed feral kid? You're definitely going to need a boomerang.

My 1st Years Pink Fleece Blanket & Bear Baby Gift Set Review

Every time a package arrives home, I would always feel excited even for items I order online but there is one package that I had been looking forward to receive. It is the one from My 1st Years! But since the item is from the UK, I needed to pick it up at the post office.

You can just imagine how happy I was to know that the package I was going to get is from My 1st Years. I also have other items for review from abroad so I didn't expect that it is already the package for Bella.

It came with a beautiful luxury box and a white bow on top. So, if you are going to buy from them for a gift, you will no longer need to buy a box or a paper bag because the items are already contained in a sturdy lovely box.

My 1st Years

My 1st Years

The box was just an introduction of charm and beauty because when we opened it, my little girl flashed a smile seeing a lovely pink blanket with her name on it and a bear stuffed toy that also has her name on it.

My 1st Years

My 1st Years create personalized items and gifts for babies and toddlers. They make gifts even more special because you can personalize it with the name of the child. Aside from that, the items are indeed of high quality!

What I got was the Pink Fleece Blanket & Bear Baby Gift Set worth £25.00. The 15cm tall bear was so cute, soft and cuddly. With the name on it, Bella was pretty sure it was hers!

The fleece blanket was so soft unlike the ones I already have. It is cold on the skin and would make your little one feel even more loved because of its softness and tenderness.

Aside from the name, the date of birth of the child can also be embroidered on the front. Although, Bella's date of birth was 08-09-2011. But that is fine. This is already awesome!

The fleece blanket is 70cm x 120cm, machine washable and is 100% polyester.

Adorable Disney Palace Pets Your Little Princess Will Love!


Disney Palace Pets

This is the new found love of Bella. Lol! Well, she just discovered how cute and adorable the Palace Pets are. We already love the Disney Princesses but these adorbs pets are something that would soon end up in Bella's toy box because she had been eyeing some Palace Pet toys in the mall.

But I love the cartoon version of the Palace Pets because they look really cute. I could stare at them for a long time!

Disney Palace Pets

I love the idea that each princess had their own pets. I guess some have two or pets. Here, I am going to show you some pets owned by each princess.

Cinderella and Bibbidy

This is Cinderella's Bibbidy wearing a carriage crown. I like her color in pink and blue but Bibbidy's favorite color is white.

Snow_White and Berry

This pretty bunny named Berry is Snow White's pet with stunning golden accents.

Rapunzel and Blondie

Rapunzel has her own pony too named Blondie. Yes, the color of this pony matches Rapunzel's long hair!

 Belle and Teacup

Teacup is a beautiful dog with pink bows and roses owned by Belle.

 Bloom and Aurora

Aurora won't be sleeping all day anymore. She can also spend the day riding on her gorgeous purple pony Bloom with swirly curls!

 Jasmine and Sultan

Who wouldn't know Sultan? The every loyal friend and pet of Princess Jasmin.

 Ariel and Matey

When Ariel got her feet, she could also take care of pets too like Treasure and his cute purple puppy Matey she found near the harbor.

Mulan and Lychee.jpg

Lychee is a brave pony owned by a brave princess, Mulan.

Pocahontas and Windflower

I find Windflower really beautiful with its feathery crown. This is a pet owned by Pocanhontas.

Lovely, right? As of now, there are 26 Disney Palace Pets. I don't know if they will still add more. Maybe. Remember I was talking about toys? Here are some Palace Pet toys that I would get for my little one who are so into these cutie pets!
