Music has always been a big part of my life. My father plays guitar, my mother plays piano and through my youth I learned to play piano, clarinet, saxophone and trombone. I am a huge believer in the power of music on a child’s intellectual development and it’s one of the reasons that I’ve featured so many amazing children’s musicians on my site.
LEGO DUPLO understands the effect that music can have on creativity too. In fact, a 2011 study of parents with children between one and five years of age revealed that among children that listen to music during playtime, 55% of children are happier when music is coupled with play; 50% are more excited to play when they hear music and 43% act sillier when music is coupled with play.
