Auditory-motor development is the ability to execute movements guided by the ears. Includes ear-hand coordination, ear-foot and ear-motor (both ears). Children who grow up listening to sounds (croaking frogs, barking dogs, flying planes, poetry, stories and music) will have well-developed auditory skills.
The ear (vestibular system) plays a central role in the development of language and movement. The whole body is directed by the ear as an auditory organ. When a child listens and looks attentively, he uses his entire body , and then can concentrate on what he needs from the environment for its development.
Listening is a skill that children must learn to become aware of the sounds of their environment. It leads to better attention skills, a good ear to learn to listen and well-developed hearing discrimination skills, an important ability to learn to read.
This means that children learn to perceive sounds within words. Through musical activities, children can learn to hear similarities and differences in tone, volume and intensity; sounds, words and sentences; numbers; rhythm and distance.
Sequencing and auditory memorization means that what is heard can be stored and remembered significantly. This is also important for reading, as well as for auditory analysis: analyzing words or clapping syllables or sounds and auditory synthesis, adding sounds and syllables to form a word or pattern.
Finally, hearing closure means that children can process instructions in less than 4 seconds so that the contents are not lost. As you can see, auditory development also occurs thanks to music. Music should be an integral part of children’s lives as it will help them to have skills they otherwise could not get or would achieve it in a slower way.
