Music Matters in Early Childhood Development

The Music Room

Grand Opening of The Music Room

Music Exposure can be an Essential Component in Early Childhood Education and Development.

Pretend City worked together with musicians, educators and others to open a musical exhibit dedicated to a musical learning environment. It is important for parents and educators to understand the importance of this type of play and learning.

Music is a natural and important part of young children’s growth and development. Like language development, young children develop musically through a predictable sequence that can be triggered through singing in tune and marching to a beat. Children practice and engage different parts of the brain when experimenting and observing different instruments. Including this type of activity ensures a comprehensive learning experience.

Our new exhibit will encourage active participation in a life-long appreciation of music. Our exhibit will host a variety of authentic percussion and string instruments to introduce young children to key developmental concepts such as rhythm, tone, and expressive movement. Parents and caregivers can help children identify high and low tones, show them different rhythms, and join them in making melodies and singing their own songs.
