Babies play the melodica

In our babies class, we love to sing and play the melodica. Children get excited on music and show great interest in this specific musical instrument and the sound it produces.

Slide1

Today, after singing our song, they played the melodica themselves. And the result? Spectacular! Just like young musicians, the blew the instrument and pushed the buttons. Some even managed to produce a nice sound!

Slide2

As a result of this playing, attention and memory of children was stimulated and practiced their control and coordination skills.

Slide4

But most of all, this experience provided children with the ability to express themselves and have fun! Music is always an excellent tool for babies to discover the world.
