Music for kids is essential. Classical music is highly beneficial for their development. Did you know that recent studies have shown that making music can make your child nicer, more willing to help, and better at problem-solving than his peers who don’t play it?
Young children love a blend of music, movement, rhythm and dance. Music and movement together provide a lot many benefits to the social, mental and physical development in children. Moreover incorporating music and movement in early childhood education helps young children with social interaction and language growth.
It is also believed that music helps adolescents release or control emotions and helps coping with difficult situations such as peer pressure, substance abuse, pressures of study and family, the dynamics of friendships and social life, and the pain of loss or abuse. Playing music also teaches self discipline and can bring lots of joy.

Students can also learn to improve their work: Learning music promotes craftsmanship, and students learn to want to create good work instead of mediocre work.
Music for young kids
If you are interested to expose your baby and child to classical music in a group setting, than the following event may be interesting for you;
The “Music Seasons” quartet is a music event in central Athens in the Vebo theatre. It is specially designed for babies, children and their parents, from the first to the last detail. Dionysis Yambanas has composed music exclusively for this concert, while dancer-choreographer Sarah Toscano has edited and performed a tender choreography. Even the space has been properly shaped: Parents and babies will be at a walking distance from the action, on the stage, sitting on benches and comfortable pillows. The musicians will be moving around, and so is Sarah Toscan herself.
