Singing is a fundamental part of your child’s development, from an early age they are taught to sing with classics like ‘row row row your boat’ or ‘rock a bye baby’, but singing is far more beneficial to your child than you may think!
- Singing causes your child’s brain to multitask, helping them to develop memory, from remembering lyrics to starting cues, the brain will learn to handle more tasks at once.
- Singing also encourages deep breathing, allowing more oxygen to the brain.
- It also releases endorphins to the brain, causing the body to feel good and increases brain activity.
- Encourages concentration.
- One of our favourite benefits of children singing is that it can help to develop a child’s imagination and creativity.

Develops Learning Abilities
here are many benefits of children singing that can help a child learn. The alphabet is taught with the ‘ABC’ song. Quite often, a foreign language is often taught through singing. It aids learning to remember phrases with greater accuracy. Through something as simple as taking a song a child already knows, such as ‘twinkle twinkle little star’ and changing the words accordingly, you can aid learning in anything from science and history to the English language!
