3 Tips to Get Your Toddler Interested in Music, New York, New York

Learning an instrument is an extremely rewarding experience and can lead to a lifelong passion. It’s important to start young, and while your toddler may not be able to pluck guitar strings or play the piano yet, you can still get them excited about music. It only takes a few simple steps to kick-start their interest, and you’ll find that they’ll be excited about the prospect of music lessons down the road.

3 Ways to Get Your Toddler Excited About Music

1. Sing

Many mothers sing to their infants, and a memory many people recall is singing songs like “Itsy Bitsy Spider” or even the ABCs. Sing simple, easy tunes, and as your toddler develops, encourage them to sing along. They’ll begin learning the basics of song structure and singing naturally, which will transition well into music lessons.

2. Expose Them to Instruments

This will help them hone in on which one they’ll eventually take music lessons for and further build positive attachments to fuel their passion.

3. Create Songs

Music provides an easy way to make daily activities more fun. Create songs about brushing teeth or bathing to integrate music into your toddler’s life and invite them to begin working on their own compositions. As simple as it may seem, this is the start of them learning to create music and something they’ll practice as they age.
