What Life Skills Can Your Child Learn From Musical Theater?, Staten Island, New York

Many parents try enrolling their child on a sports team to help them learn valuable life lessons — but the soccer field isn’t the only place where children can develop new skills! Few activities are better for developing abilities with lifelong benefits than musical theater. Here’s a closer look at how this fun and invigorating activity can make a lasting difference for your child.

Public Speaking

Participation in musical theater gives your child the opportunity to perform onstage in front of an audience. While this can be intimidating at first, it builds confidence and prepares your child for future moments when personal presentation matters.

musical theaterTheater helps your child improve their vocal projection and body language so they can display a confident demeanor, even when placed in a potentially intimidating situation. Theater also helps children learn to pick up on social and emotional cues, which allows them to adapt their presentations as needed.

Responsibility & Cooperation

Though the leading performers get most of the attention, a quality theater production depends on the hard work of a lot of people. Whether your child has a leading role or a smaller part, participation in theater will teach the values of teamwork and compromise as they work with others to put together a quality performance. Rehearsing and presenting a play require an ability to follow directions and take initiative when needed — both essential skills for adulthood.
