Music is a terrific educational medium for kids of all ages. Very young kids can bang on a drum or shake maracas, while older children—who are ready for music lessons—can practice on an electronic keyboard, a guitar, or other similar instrument. Music teaches kids about much more than rhythm and notes; the self-discipline and thinking skills needed to play instruments helps children become better students. Playing music is also a great form of self-expression.
