Once again, research proves what we parents have known instinctively for a long time… that playing music and singing lullabies has the power to soothe, lower stress, strengthen bonds, and improve sleeping patterns.
Kindermusik has long recognized the power of music especially when it comes to child brain development, but we specifically use lullabies because of the emotional and health benefits. In fact, we include a lullaby or rocking song in every one of our baby music classes and toddlers classes. And just in case you’re wondering, some of our favorite Kindermusik lullabies include:
- You Are My Sunshine
- Golden Slumbers
- May There Always Be Sunshine
- Hush, Little Baby
- Tell Me Why
- That’s An Irish Lullaby
By the way, what researchers found most impacting was for these little ones to hear the voices of their loved ones singing – a special reminder that the most important people in a child’s life are his/her parents and close family members and that nothing is sweeter than the sound of your voice in your child’s ears.
