International Music Day

It is on October 1 that International Music Day has been established since 1975. The main objective of this day is to raise public awareness of music. This special day is dedicated to the promotion of music in all its forms and awareness of its importance in our lives.

Today, Music Day is celebrated on June 21 in many countries, and has earned the title of World Music Day.

Importance of music in babies

Music plays a crucial role in the development of babies. It stimulates their senses, promotes their awakening and contributes to their emotional well-being. Here are some reasons why music is so important for babies:

  • Language Development: Exposure to music helps babies develop language skills. The different sounds, rhythms and melodies help them recognize and reproduce sounds, which promotes their language acquisition.
  • Brain stimulation: Music stimulates babies' brains and promotes their cognitive development. Listening to music helps strengthen neural connections and improve their memory, concentration and learning abilities.
  • Emotional expression: Music allows babies to express their emotions. They may feel happy, sad or angry while listening to different types of music. This helps them understand and manage their own emotions, as well as develop sensitivity to the emotions of others.

It is essential to integrate music into babies' daily lives. Here are some easy ways to do it:

  • Sing baby songs
  • Play soft music while they sleep
  • Use musical instruments appropriate for their age
  • Dance with them to catchy rhythms

In conclusion, International Music Day reminds us of the importance of music in our lives, especially for babies. Music promotes their linguistic development, stimulates their brain and allows them to express their emotions. Integrating music into babies' daily lives is essential for their well-being and development.
