Today is Random Acts of Kindness day, so we are taking a little time out of our day to tell all you lovely people how much we appreciate every single one of you!
A study by Cambridge University shows that engaging in musical activities on a regular basis greatly improves a child’s ability to empathise with others. An increased ability to empathise can lead to behaviours such as kindness, patience and cooperativeness which benefit the educational environment – for example, children who score higher on an empathy scale are more likely to help others being bullied. They found music to be one of the most effective ways to work with children on social and emotional communication, allowing them to experience another person’s emotional state and produce a kind response.
Imagine the impact in schools and the wider community if teaching emotional intelligence through music became part of the curriculum!
If you know of any young people who may benefit from participating in a musical activity, check out what we have on offer for young people over on our website.
