Experts agree that interest in music has always been beneficial for kids. That doesn’t mean your little one has to choose a career as a musician or become the next Beethoven, but by learning to play an instrument kids have an easier time learning math, practising good manners and becoming team players. Guitars, posters, album covers and music wallpapers are just some of the music décor items you can introduce in your kids’ room to help boost their development. Looking for ideas on how to do it in style? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
WALLS AS MUSIC SHEETS
Research shows that playing an instrument at an early age can help improve a child’s learning ability and memory through music notes by stimulating different parts of the brain. So, why not make memorising songs easier and more fun by covering the walls in wallpapers depicting music notes of your child’s favourite song? When your youngster gets tired of the song you can easily change the wallpapers.
PLAY ON LITTLE ONE
Picking up an instrument and performing in a musical group or ensemble will help your child break out of their social shell. Encourage your kid’s desire for performance by creating a cute, small stage in the corner of the room. That way a little musician can invite his friends over to have a jam and learn how to do it in a team, develop leadership skills and discipline along the way.
INSTRUMENTS IN ALL SHAPES AND FORMS
In order for the instruments to always be at hand so your child could express creativity whenever he desires, they should have a place in the room. Stands are a perfect solution for string instruments, however, if the room is overcrowded you could always opt for wall hangers. You can even fit drums in your little percussionist’s room as long as there is enough space and the neighbours don’t mind. If your child is still too young to be playing a real instrument, you can always turn to pillows in the shape of the guitar to help you point an aspiring musician in the right direction.
Besides the guitar, hang a custom poster with your kid’s favourite lyrics or some inspirational music quotes like “If music be the food of love, play on”, “When you play, never mind who listens to you” or “Music is to the soul what words are to the mind”. And finally, if your musician to be has a music idol, posters are a must!
DRUM UP SOME FUN
There are lots of fun and exciting ways to incorporate music-inspired décor in your child’s room that you could turn into a DIY project you can share with your little one. For example, have you ever thought of using drum parts as shelves for toys, books and magazines, a trumpet as a lamp or a bookshelf in the shape of a piano?
Music is an inexhaustible source of inspiration. It teaches kids that there is always more to learn. Above all, playing music is a creative pursuit and creativity is good for the mind, body and soul. Encourage your kid’s passion for music by decorating the room in the above mentioned manner. You won’t regret it!
Regarding wallpapers, you could hire a designer to make you a vector of the music notes in Photoshop or Corel Draw and then send the file to a printing company to print in wallpaper format. For example megaprint.com, but there are many of them out there. You can print whatever you wish.
