10 ways music supports early brain development for kids

  1. During early childhood, the brain is extremely “plastic,” meaning it is more malleable, sensitive, and adaptable to its environment. 

  2. Visual and auditory input also stimulates an infant’s neural connections.

  3. When singing, two areas in the brain essential to language ability are engaged: Broca’s area (associated with the production and output of speech) and Wernicke’s area (associated with the processing and input of speech).

  4. The parent1-infant attachment relationship has been connected to gene expression and even to the physical development of an infant’s right brain, which regulates stress, emotion, and ability to self-regulate.

  5. Sensitive and responsive caregiving during the first year of life also helps to build the foundation for essential cognitive skills called executive functions (e.g., working memory, cognitive flexibility, and inhibitory control). 

  6. Early communication between an infant and a mother/caregiver (often referred to as “motherese” or infantdirected speech) has been labeled as having a musicality, suggesting that the infant brain may be predisposed to certain universal melodic and rhythmic elements of communication.

  7. Brain research has emphasized that it is an infant’s active engagement with his surroundings that influences brain development. 

  8. Music gives gives young children the opportunity to practice patterns, math concepts and symbolic thinking.

  9. Playing songs and using music styles from children's home cultures create continuity between the home and the caregiving setting.

  10. Music is one of the few activities that allows us to use our entire brain.

Adina, TeddyMozart is for you

Meet Adina Oberman

Adina's story is an inspiration to us all and is the prime reason why TeddyMozart was created.

The story...

Adina hopes to share TeddyMozart with her little girl, Talia. Talia is 10 months old and Adina can already see how much music makes her come alive. Talia shares this love of music with her dad, and her grandfather Stuart. Stuart was an amazing musician who had a passion for music his entire life. Unfortunately he passed away after a long battle with cancer before Talia was born. Stuart wrote and recorded dozens of songs throughout his life, and now Adina's husband is currently working on digitizing them and remastering them so that they can share Stuart's recordings with family and friends. Adina is hoping to use TeddyMozart to bring Stuart's music to life for Talia, and for all of the children in their family.
