Little Eva loves music, and it turns out music loves her too.
New research led by the University of Queensland has revealed music has many lasting benefits for children, particularly in social, emotional and cognitive development.
Researcher Vicky Abad has used the research to inform her Boppin’ Babies program, based at Tarragindi.
“Boppin’ Babies encourages parents to actively participate in music groups with children,” she said.
Children like Eva, her brother Tahj and their mum Juliana Tran, can learn techniques that will allow them to use music to learn.
Boppin’ Babies music groups will be held each Thursday at 9:15am until December 10 at the Wellers Hill Uniting Church, 24 Pop Street, Tarragindi.
