children during Hey Dee Ho Music session as part of Early Start Programs

Term two of Hey Dee Ho Music is off with a bang, with fun new themes in the program. New Shapes and Jungle themes are packed with new songs, dances and activities, including props like seashells to incorporate more natural sensory experiences in line with the National Quality Standards. In light of these exciting additions, we revisit the benefits of music and how it can be used to help children learn through play.

Language Development

Children have an innate love of music, and early exposure can play a huge part in assisting children to develop language skills. Hey Dee Ho Music use rhyme and repetition to reinforce key concepts, and engaging musical experiences help children get around tricky words.

Even as a newborn, exposure to music can be hugely beneficial. Babies respond to music, and through exposure, begin to build the cognitive pathways that are the foundation of language learning.

Confidence and Social Skills

Music lessons for young children are also a great way to build confidence and social skills. Taking part in the program through singing and dancing in a positive environment is very beneficial for young children, and it allows them to become confident in their abilities.

Music lessons provide a chance for children to interact in a fun environment, dancing, singing and making music together. This is a great way to encourage social abilities in young children.

Hey Dee Ho Music provides an opportunity for children to explore and interact with rhythm, rhyme, pitch and melody in a supportive environment. This equips children with confidence and a life long love of music.
