I have said for years that exposing your children to music and having them play an instrument is key to developing their brain and predisposing them to their development of logic and math centers.

When your child plays music, their hands are playing two different movements, and he has to coordinate them to work together. Notes are an independent language from they use on a daily basis to communicate. They must concentrate on keeping the right rhythm. They must interpret the emotion of the music by varying both the speed and volume. Additionally, they must analyze what they are hearing as they play while continuing to play. Each of these independently is a good exercise for the brain, but when to put all together in a single activity, It provides the brain with a full mental workout that results in adaptable connections throughout their brains.

Thanks to technology and tablet technology they can be exposed to music earlier and can be creative in their learning as they get older and begin using an instrument.

Below are some apps that you can get for your children that will help them with their music exposure and education.
