The beginning of children learning music is not piano, but percussion. Because for music, the sense of rhythm is more important than the sense of melody, and it is easy for children to build interest and confidence in music through percussion.
Children's percussion instruments are enthusiastic and direct and often require live ensembles. Through learning, children can improve their ability to cooperate with partners while expressing themselves in music. To maintain rhythm during performance, you need to keep focusing. Therefore, hand-beating percussion is very helpful for improving concentration.
Drums can not only make the limbs more coordinated, but also help promote the development balance of the brain and cerebellum and develop intelligence. Children start learning from percussion first, because percussion is the easiest to make sounds, which can satisfy children's desire to make audio, while reducing learning frustration. It can be seen that children's percussion teaching has become a new trend in music education.
The three major elements of music include: rhythm, melody, and harmony. To measure a person's musical quality, the first condition is a sense of rhythm.
A large number of studies have shown that children with strong hand-brain coordination ability have better development of other abilities, such as faster language development, longer concentration time, stronger observation and memory, especially in thinking.
