Children's Song & Dance

Benefits in volunteers teaching children Music, Dance, Singing include:

• Music motivates children to movement. Music naturally stimulates areas of the brain responsible for movement, like the head bobbing, shoulder shrugging, and toe tapping that you don’t even think about when you hear your favorite tune.

• Music improves children’s performance and concentration. It has a positive affect on children’s mood. Music makes students happier by presenting a more relaxing; positive atmosphere that motivates them to drive themselves and work harder. Some volunteers have music playing in the background while their students are doing art or craft activities.

• It can teach children coordination, rhythm, flexibility, and various muscles throughout their body. Dance can be varied in difficulty or intensity to suit the children’s skill levels and preferences.
