5 Reasons to Get Your Child Involved in Music

5 Reasons to Get Your Child Involved in Music

Learn how your child can benefit from the magic of music.

Here at the Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival, we are clearly huge advocates for music! Awesome Cajun, Zydeco and Blues jams bring us happiness, and joy. The great thing about music is that it is enjoyed by people of all ages! Music genres exist for individuals with all different tastes. If your child has expressed any interest in picking up a musical instrument, you should allow them to! Encourage them to learn to play, and watch as they experience a few of the many following benefits of musical education:

  • Learning a musical instrument will give your child an educational advantage in the classroom. There is a strong association between musical participation, and academic achievement. It can stimulate the brain, and help your child to do better in subjects like math and reading.
  • Musical participation helps to improve memory function. In and out of the classroom, your child will benefit from a better memory.
  • Playing a musical instrument will help your child to be more social. Musical group activities are easy to find, and your child will love socializing in their school’s band or orchestra class.
  • Mastering a talent like a musical instrument will help your child to become more confident! It will give them a new way to express themselves, and increase their self-worth.
  • Help your child to become more patient by encouraging them to learn to play a new instrument. They will have to slow down, and take their time as they master the skills. This is an inadvertent way to teach patience!

If you and your child want to hear awesome live Cajun, Zydeco and Blues artists, mark your calendar for our next Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival!  Save the date for the 29th Annual Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival, coming Memorial Day weekend of 2018. Contact us for more information.
