In childhood, singing is more than a playful activity. Review the benefits that singing has in the education of children.
Children are a fantastic box of cuteness. You will never get bored of watching them grow and sharing their new skills. From babies, the little ones begin to imitate sounds, later the speech arrives, always sheltered by the imitation, then it is time to sing.
Singing in childhood is more than just a playful activity. Singing brings various benefits in the education of children:
Supports language development
Enrich your vocabulary
Motivates them to seek new learning
Support their self-esteem
Singing is more than talking to background music. Vocal education, which is recommended that it always be supervised by a professional, and singing is not just about memorizing musical pieces by an artist or group. Singing means accompanying the child in a comprehensive development of their abilities. When they sing, children discover the possibilities they have with their voice; they begin to experience feelings and how to express them; they begin to play with their vocal cords and this even puts them in a good mood.
Singing and health
Teaching a child to sing greatly supports their health. Why? If children are taught the habits of vocal education (breathing, articulation, emission), they will be educating them to control their body. Knowing how to breathe properly, helps your heart not work in a hurry and when they are adults of the third age, this will surely be applauded.
Taking care of the voice also means that they will be taught to protect their throats from sudden changes in temperature, eat ice, bundle up when going out and even, if they develop the habit and taste, it is very likely that when they are older they will not be interested in trying the cigarette. As if that were not enough, singing helps the development of emotional intelligence, which is really necessary in these times when it seems that adolescents are increasingly prone to depression and low self-esteem.

Music and mental health
The issue of self-esteem is important to highlight, currently the ghosts of harassment and intimidation (in English bullying ), especially at school, are increasingly close. Knowing how to manipulate the voice and knowing how and when to use it may well put an abuser in his place long before a tragedy.
Singing also helps self-control. Music is built on feelings that are expressed in various ways. The sound rhythms will be able to accompany and shelter the little ones in the most sentimental moments or of total anger.

The voice is a great instrument that we seldom value. A separate topic is group singing, an important engine of social integration, teamwork and goal achievement. Who has not listened to a chorus and said “how beautiful!” Being part of a choir not only fuels the general culture, it also creates discipline and provides them with a hobby that is generally quite inexpensive.
Experience singing with your children, always with the initial premise of fun. Encourage your child to sing and sing with him; who knows, maybe your son is the next Enrico Caruso and he just needs a push to fully exploit his vocal and interpretive abilities.
