How SINGing is important
Everyone can sing! Seb loves music and singing with his family. How well everyone sings is not important.

Children at this age love music, singing and moving to music. They can also enjoy playing simple instruments like drums or shaking rice in a container to make music. Music and singing develop Seb's brain in different ways to reading and talking.

Music and memory go together, and Seb is learning words from songs he hears.

Sing in any language, or lots of languages if you like, there are no rules for singing.
