Musical experiences for two year olds involve listening to, learning about, and making music.
Music calms your little one during rest time. It also promotes listening skills. Through music your child will learn about patterns, and through singing your child will learn about language and rhymes. When your child is between the ages of one and three, he will look for opportunities to get rocking, rolling, clapping, and moving to a beat.
It is important for you to have resources available whereby you can enhance your child’s musical opportunities. Part of supporting your child in music is giving opportunities for him to not only listen to music, but also to become actively engaged in it by playing an instrument along with the music, making his own music, dancing with music, and play acting with music.
