Musical Instruments Help Improve Core Stability

by Austin Stanfel Building a Foundation for the Future

Nowadays, there is a lot of focus that is put on children to make them ready for school. Making the children ready physically, is something that many child cares and preschools focus on throughout the term.

In this regard, outdoor playground is considered to be quite critical for children to develop skills that will help them throughout their lives.

For instance, having a strong core and a right balance will allow a toddler and children to transition into the following phases of life. This will not only allow them to have better coordination but will also increase their ability to getting academically engaged.

In this regard, outdoor music is often considered as one of the best aids that are used for core development. At the same time, it also helps to build self-esteem and encourages expression.

Astronomical music instruments such as the Akadinda by Percussion Play engages the gross motor skills of children when they play notes with varying intervals both down and up through the length. To do this, children do a range of movements that engage their core and increase the core strength. This allows children to sit in alternative seated positions with greater strength and stability.

Any activity that crosses the midline can help children in their physical development. Imagine this midline as being an invisible line going down from your body's center.

While crossing the midline can be quite tricky, it is not tricky when learned from an early age. To make children feel confident about passing the midlines through movements, it is essential to make the two hemispheres of their brain to work in coordination. This will help them a lot in the development of core strength.

Any musical instrument that makes a child reach cross their body or to use one side of the body to play encourages communication between the two brain hemispheres. As time passes on, children can do it with great spontaneity. By this time, they will not feel the need to swap their hands anymore.

So let us consider the children who find it difficult to grasp a pencil or to pull up the zipper. Large mallets in outdoor play require a lot of gross motor skills for manipulation. Through such activities, children end up developing a good deal of gross motor skills, which allows them to carry out a range of different activities in real life.

Such gross motor skills can also be highly useful in the classroom. Furthermore, they also engage the vestibular system and increase their overall confidence when it comes to movement.

Many outdoor instruments are resistant to weather. This allows them to stay in place throughout the year, allowing children to develop various skills independently.
