CONDUCIVE OF CHILD, PLAY & COGNITION
Yamaha PSS - E30 & PSS - F30
From sounds to symphonies, a baby first learns to use its vocals through listening to surrounding echoes and incomprehensible melodies. Music is intrinsically linked to the growth and conscious of a human being and it is this innate capacity that allows children, young adults and then as they mature into adults to comprehend and adapt to social situations, grasp ethical concerns and acknowledge their resolutions. The concept behind recognizing a particular tone and identifying a distinct cord is one that is fostered within the conscious mind from infancy and throughout. Studies have even proved that children who received music lessons had significant cognitive improvements compared to all other children in the study. Constructing and nurturing the practice of music at a young age have been found to significantly enhance children’s cognitive abilities, including languagebased reasoning, short-term memory, planning and inhibition, leading to improved academic performance. Yamaha Music Centre has been instrumental in providing a platform and products to cater to these educative methodologies and practices that support and foster the notion to improve a child’s development and performance through growth and throughout life.
