As we all know, not every child bursts out of the womb a social butterfly. Some children are more shy and take a while to open up — and, of course, there’s nothing wrong with that! However, as children get older, some parents begin to worry that their child is falling behind on the sociability scale. Well, good news! Music lessons can improve your child’s sociability! Here’s how:
Music Lessons Build Confidence
A big reason children remain so shy is because they don’t have the self-confidence needed to step outside their comfort zones and make new friends. Taking music lessons and developing a new skill can give them a sense of achievement and build their self-esteem and self-confidence.
Music Lessons Build Trust
When children don’t have the proper motivations needed to feel safe talking to other children, they tend to stick to themselves and avoid associating with people they don’t know. When they take music lessons and build up a sense of trust with their teacher, those emotions carry into their daily lives and bring them out of their shell a bit.
Music Lessons Form Common Bonds
Even if your child is shy, if they see other children whose fingertips are calloused from playing the guitar or who are joking about how much saliva is in their instruments’ reeds, your child will recognize this as a common bond between themselves and other children and his or her sociability can improve.
Music Lessons Promote Friendship
From those common bonds can come true, lasting friendships. Music, in general, can help your child relax and open up to make new friendships, but the bonds and similarities shared by students who take music lessons can seriously improve your child’s sociability and transform him or her as a person.
