Babies bounce to beat

Bounce to Beat 600x340

Naomi Gulbrandson jokes that she’s probably only got a year before her son realises her lack of singing talent.

But the Paddington mum is persevering to give her four-month-old son Flynn the best start in life.

Sharing music in the home with children has lasting educational and developmental benefits according to new research led by the University of Queensland.

The study found music had lasting developmental benefits, particularly in social, emotional and cognitive development.

Boppin’ Babies founder Vicky Abad, who is part of the UQ research team, said shared music in was the basis of the program.

Ms Gulbrandson said she was surprised how well Flynn responded to the session. “You can tell the babies want to start copying the movements that everyone else is doing,” she said.

The program is held Tuesday at the Communify Paddington Hall, 10 Moreton Street, Paddington.
