Music and preschool children
The child is forced to learn notes, learn scales,Various musical etudes, teach how to properly hold your fingers, how to sit properly. But the child, especially preschool children, does not consider all this to be music. Very often a child learns to play on any instrument, but does not learn, not a single child's song he knows. And the music that he is forced to teach, he does not understand, music classes accordingly become not interesting. Therefore, it is necessary to develop musicality in children from early childhood. If a child has many musical impressions, it is much easier for him to understand and listen to different music. It is known that already in the womb of the mother the fetus reacts to music, especially positively on the classical: Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi. Of course, the musical taste of the child is influenced by the environment in which the baby is growing, the musical preferences of his parents. At first the child likes classical music (a greater percentage of children are interested in classical music), then as music grows older, music from cartoons is added, music that he hears by radio and television. What does the child think about music, what is its role in human life?

Pre-schoolers know that composers are composing music,Know some musical instruments, basically it's a piano, a drum, a guitar. At this age they understand that music can be played on several instruments at the same time. Children distinguish musical genres: they can distinguish waltz, march. Understand what ballet is, but it is difficult for them to perceive: opera, choral music. The favorite musical genre of children is a song. Children sing, when they play, when they bathe, they dress. They sing, because they feel the need for their emotional expression. They sing when they want to assert themselves in their collective. They sing when they want to attract the attention of others. Preschoolers like to combine different activities: singing and dancing, playing a musical instrument and singing along, drawing and listening to music or singing. Children are able to distinguish the nature of musical works. When visitors come, they ask to put cheerful music, in a kindergarten prefer children's songs or classical music.

Try to have the child listen to classical music every day, you can make five minutes: include a classical musical work and relax a bit, relax together with the child. Attend theaters, preschool children like to watch ballet, Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker" is very well received. If a child is involved in a music school, it is very important that parents take an active part in teaching. Arrange home concerts in which, along with the child, perform various musical works, let it be children's songs, or maybe something from modern songs. Taking part in such concerts, the child understands that he brings joy, fun, and hence music is good. Encourage the child's play on a musical instrument that he learns at a music school, even if it seems to you that the child is playing, not very well, first applause, and then tactfully say your remarks. But, in no case do not force the preschooler to study music, if you see that these lessons are unpleasant for him.
