We don’t have our typical Monday morning recap this week as yesterday was our Kids Choir presentation of “Esther-Ordinary Faith” – our spring musical that they’ve been working on since August.
I’ll post the video here to the blog later this week if you’d like to watch it again – but allow me to encourage you to think about involving your kids in music if they’re not already!
I wrote this post 8 years ago, and really nothing has changed...
It’s unique to find a church that places an emphasis on music in children, but it’s so key. Involving your kids in music at an early age allows them to start using and developing crucial parts of the brain. This brain development not only helps them explore creativity (art, music, drama, dance) but also allows them to process the everyday mudane with a different set of lenses, and a creative perspective.
Kids involved in learning music also improve their ability and skill in math. Yup – by connecting the crucial right and left parts of the brain, music aids in the understanding and implementing of basic and complex mathematical skills.
So consider plugging your kids in the Kids Choir at OMPC. We’re meeting right now for the next 3 Sundays (April 22, 29 and May 5) to prepare for leading in worship on Mother’s Day.
