Kids Music – Lyrics, Melody and Memory

While watching a music student in a first-class quality recently, I noticed the phenomenon of students singing a poem and then ask if you could add a melody to poetry. When the teacher asked comprehension questions about the poem before adding the melody, the responses of the students were in general. When the same questions were asked after the addition of a melody and sing poetry, student responses were more accurate. Often sang their answers. Adding words to the melody seemed to help root in the mind the meaning of the poem. Maybe it was the simultaneous action of the right and left sides of the brain, which helped students remember the information after the poem was added a melody.

This comment reminded me of my own musical education at the primary level and frequency to which I add songs to poems, songs and stories to help students remember the key education issues. Many times, teachers tell me that because the students sang songs of the fifty states, the mathematical concepts, historical facts, rhyming words, etc., students were better able to remember and retrieve this information. The students seemed to more easily understand and retain the information you learned through enjoyable music.

It is common for my former music students I see in the supermarket or in the restaurant and tell me they still remember, many years later, the words of educational songs they had learned during their elementary music. Many students still remembered the words added to classic tunes and have instant recall of both the lyrics and the melody, even 20 years later.

Obviously, the combination of music and lyrics has much merit and improves student performance. Education, easy to sing along with attractive melodies can stimulate the child’s memory and retention with the content of the song. This is the main objective of silly bus and education to write and record songs for children. For preschoolers and kindergarten, the songs are a fun way to teach children basic concepts such as colors, numbers, the alphabet, months of the year, etc.

How can we determine if the child has learned a concept presented in a song? After the child has heard the song several times, play the song and invite you to listen carefully to the keywords and repeating sections of a song. Ask your child to tell the story described in a song and share information that recall the song. Parents and teachers can then assess what the child has learned and involve children in the discovery and exploration of the relationship between the learning experience and new knowledge. Movement evaluate and improve the learning experience to add words to a melody. Learning through kinetic movement is a natural way to increase the child’s understanding of music and the information conveyed in the lyrics. With the movement of the child, parents and teachers can view and assess the understanding and knowledge acquired in a nursery rhyme.
