Why Storysong?

Studies have shown the benefit music has on young children's social, emotional, and cognitive development. 

Storysong classes strengthen skills like:

  • pattern recognition

  • language and literacy development

  •  rhythmic awareness

  • deep listening 

  • verbal recall

  • auditory retention

  • fine and large motor skills

  • emotional management

  • improved sound discrimination

  • spatial-temporal intelligence

However many benefits there are to experiencing music, let's not forget the most important one of all: joy and delight!  Dr. Eric Rasmussen (chair of the Early Childhood Music Department at the Peabody Preparatory of The Johns Hopkins University) says it best: 

"Music is for music’s sake.  It gives you a better understanding of yourself. The horizons are higher when you are involved in music."
