“When children are involved in hearing music, singing songs, and dancing to the beat, research shows that more pathways – or what the experts call neural connections – are formed in the brain.”
According to the Web site “KidsHealth.org” presented by the Nemours Foundation, studies show that kids who are actively involved in music
- do better in reading and math when they start school
- are able to focus better and do better at controlling their bodies
- play better with others
- have high self esteem
Debbie Cavalier is the Dean of Music Education at Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music where she studied music and music education. For over twenty years, she has been performing for kids and is now touring by presenting a series of children’s concerts as “Debbie and Friends.”
Debbie is well aware that when it comes to learning, there is a direct correlation between the child’s environment and the ability to grasp new skills and retain information. The more the child is immersed in the learning process and the more his/her senses are stimulated, the greater the child will retain and apply the information. Therefore, it’s extremely important for young children to be engaged in a sensory-rich learning environment.
One of the most effective ways to create a sensory-rich learning environment is for the child to experience music and dance. When children are involved in hearing music, singing songs, and dancing to the beat, research shows that more pathways – or what the experts call neural connections – are formed in the brain.
Debbie’s mission is to share her love of music and get as many kids singing and dancing as possible! Along with her band of skilled musicians, Debbie gets the kids in the audience to interact with her band of skilled musicians by singing and dancing along.
Parents of young children should not miss the opportunity to bring their kids to the Debbie and Friends show!
