What you gain from this Training Module
No baby music program would be complete without lullabies.These warm and intimate songs are found in every culture and throughout human time. Lullabies and their associated activities, rocking, patting and swaying develop musical skills in listening, moving in time even in the drowsy or sleeping baby. Lullabies are important for soothing, bonding and health but when we think about the whole child we find they are beneficial in at least seven ways.
Once you read the compelling evidence, this resource will reinforce your conviction that singing is the natural communication mode of babyhood.
Here’s what the research tells us about the main benefits: maternal singing in a soothing lullaby style reduces the arousal level in mothers and babies even when they are not being held or rocked; lullabies learned from home help babies choose whom to trust and allow to care for them; and parent-preferred lullabies also have proven benefits on the vital signs, feeding and sleep of babies born premature, and spending time in neo-natal units. The surprising evidence is how important they are for keeping parents calm and that a fine singing voice is not required, only a loving tone of voice.
Learn from a range of respected researchers about the nourishing effects of lullabies and their critical role in affecting mood regulation, friendship and general wellbeing throughout our lifetime.
