Facilitating music for efficient children learning

In the song, a compass has been portrayed as a flower-shaped machine that has four petals with the initials ‘ N, W, S, E’ because children are more attracted to the things that are natural to them and that creates a sense of belonging (Mayesky, 2011). Moreover, this map also describes the symbols that are normally present on the map but people are not aware of them. The symbols like airplane show an airport and symbol of stars describe the capital of the city. This song will help a child in learning the essentials of a map including cardinal directions.
Infusing music into learning helps young children in memorizing a song because they tend to learn the information more quickly while rhyming the songs. The children that learn through music and songs have better social skills and have the ability to listen more carefully and it develops confidence. While learning a song or performing certain body directions it helps to develop integration between body and mind which is also known as sensory integration and it creates a major impact in children’s learning while reading and writing (Gardner, 2006). Neurologists suggest that the best way to enhance the development of young children’s ability is to make them learn through music and sing-song tone. They suggest a variety of ways for children that are fun and enjoyable to them and if they have their own interest in particular learning then they would tend to learn the activities more responsively (Gardner, 2006).
Gardner (2006) has researched the effects of music in the development of children’s learning and has described in his theory that music hones creativity in children and one can examine learning functions within themselves. Young children have the fascination towards music which can be manifested when they hum, and they have an impulse to move with the music and they adhere and become joyful when they hear the mother’s cradle songs and they become frantic when their favorite music is been played. Further research done by Gardner suggests that classical music strengthens different parts of the brains that help in logical thinking. If these children are to be developed musically, then these children would need proper stimulation at an appropriate time (Gardner, 2006).
The song that I selected to teach children about cardinal direction will enhance the learning of the young children and help them to memorize certain key elements and hone the young mind. This song will improve the intellect and heighten the motor skills of an individual and it will develop a positive connection with the movement of the child’s body and mind.
