Singing or singing is making music with the human voice by pronouncing words or other sounds (syllables or nonsense) at different pitches according to a certain melody.

When no words are produced but the closed-lipped voice is used to make a melody, it is called humming.

Both are very good for children to learn in their development.

Benefits of Singing and Recording for Children

Singing has so many benefits for children. I wasn't even aware of all the benefits until I started my research on the topic.

To make the benefits easier to understand, I've divided the information into groups, which include benefits for younger children and benefits for older children.

Benefits of Singing for Younger Children

Music and singing have been part of our lives since we were little. Do you remember your favorite childhood shows and all the songs that were in them?

You may still know the words of some of them.

What about all your favorite shows from your kids and the songs you can't get out of your head (no matter how hard you try).

It turns out that singing is one of the best ways to learn.

It also aids in emotional expression and dancing and singing along improves motor skills.

It has been shown to help improve brain development and language recognition.

Benefits of Singing for Older Children

Older children can also benefit from singing.

Singing is a great learning tool for older children who may be a little burnt out on traditional learning.

I remember when my high school French teacher made us sing songs in French. I still remember them to this day.

Singing is fun, not learning, but with its repetition and catchy lyrics we do learn.

Sing with a real children's microphone

All activities related to music are good for the healthy growth of every child.

On the website of parentsvannu you can read all about why making music is so important to a child. 

Every child loves to sing.

By singing can children lose their energy (more tips here). It's something they can do without toys, but it's even more fun to sing with a real microphone!

Children can sing alone (solo singing) or with others (chorus singing), which in turn stimulates socialization and cooperation.

Often it is sung with instrumental accompaniment, when no accompaniment is present it is called a cappella.

A practitioner of the art of singing in general is called a singer or vocalist.

When a piece of music that is sung also shows a story by the singers while acting, this is called opera or operetta or musical. These are also often organized at school.
