Music aids communication & speech

More evidence of the link between music and speech. Not that we've ever doubted the connection.

As music therapists, we regularly see how creating music and song in response to someone's sounds, gestures and body movement can support communication and language development.

And it's something families can do at home with everyone playing along.

Here's a song you can play around with at home that uses sound, gesture and humour. A perfect blend of elements for improvising sounds and imitating each other. You can sing along with the actual track or create your own lines. We're singing it right now!
