Why Choose Music?

Music helps children to remember.

Music helps with memory retention, every song you sing along to in Sunday school class will be secured deeply in the hearts and memories of your little learners who sing it. Some Christian songs even include important snippets from scripture, so singing along with your students will set them up for a life of faith and worship.

Singing releases endorphins.

Not only can verse and song act as a memory acquisition tool, but it also brings joy and happiness to those who sing them. Singing releases endorphins into the body, bringing about a positive feeling in kids as well as adults. Take the pressure off your kids by standing together to sing at the start of a class.

Collective singing strengthens bonds.

When done in a group, singing boosts collective feelings of belonging and strengthens community bonds. So your Sunday school students will feel more like part of a group than ever before when they sing all together. Christian choirs are incredibly popular for a similar reason – members of the church get that warm, fuzzy feeling after singing a powerful song together.

Music engages students who learn differently.

When combined with dance moves and jives, children who are kinetic learners are more engaged. As everyone interacts with information differently, environments for young kids must offer a level playing field. Some may flourish with reading and writing, whereas others come into their own when given space for creativity.

Music and song are ancient forms of prayer.

There is an element of musical expression that offers a chance for connection with God. There is a reason why singing has historically been such a vital part of Christianity – singing worship songs is pretty much praying with enthusiasm. Although our quiet moments alone with God are important, so is shouting our love for Him from the rooftops and rejoicing!
