The Importance of Making Music at Home...
...is highlighted out by a recent study by researchers at the University of Queensland (Australia). They found "that music participation at home improves numeracy, prosocial skills and attention." They found, further, that these improvements are "over and above the effects of shared book reading."
“Children who experienced more frequent parent-child music activity at two to three years showed stronger vocabulary and numeracy skills, more prosocial skills and stronger abilities to regulate their own attention and emotion at four to five years old.” --Professor Margaret Barrett

Music Together actively encourages families to make music at home. Active participation in home-based (and car-based) singing, dancing sessions, jams, and general musical mayhem is not only a lot of fun and contagious, it is--like eating your greens and exercising regularly--really good for you, and especially good for your child!
